Crab Rangoon

So for the new year, I thought I would attempt one of my favorite “Chinese” foods: crab rangoon. They are always so yummy!!! We found a recipe online that didn’t look too terribly difficult and gave it a spin. (Props to my boyfriend for his assistance in the kitchen)

Crab Rangoon
Ingredients:
1/4 c sour cream
2 (8) oz pkgs cream cheese, softened
3/4 c crab meat
2 green onions, sliced thin
1 large clove garlic, minced
2 t soy sauce
1 t sugar
Wonton wrappers
Oil (for frying)

Directions:
Whip together sour cream, cream cheese, soy sauce, and sugar until smooth. Fold in remaining ingredients (except the wrappers of course). Hear oil to med-high and it needs to be 1 1/2 inches deep. Place a small bowl of water on your work surface and lay out 6 wrappers. Place about 1 1/2 t of filling in center of wrapper. Moisten edges, bring up corners and pinch together, along with the sides so the filling doesn’t come out. Place in hot oil and fry until golden brown. Repeat until all the filling is gone.

These turned out so good!! We halved the recipe since one of my resolutions is to eat healthier. A few tips though: only fill 3 wrappers at a time and leave the rest in the fridge otherwise they’ll dry out. Enjoy!
