Prep Time:15 mins
Cook Time:6 mins
Total Time:21 mins
8 oz (225g) cream cheese
1 cup (250g) flaked crabmeat (canned or fresh)
1 finely minced garlic clove
1 ½ finely chopped green (spring) onions
½ teaspoon soy sauce
1 package 4 inch (10 cm) wonton wrappers
2 cups vegetable oil, for deep frying
Salt and black pepper, to taste
Fresh dill weed, to garnish
Let the cream cheese come to room temperature, then beat it with the soy sauce, onions, garlic and a pinch each of salt and black pepper. Mix in the crabmeat.
Put a teaspoon of crab rangoon mixture in the center of each wonton wrapper, then spread it out a bit but keeping it away from the edges.
Wet the 4 points of the wonton wrapper with water and bring them all towards the center (like in the photo) to seal them.
Heat the oil in a pot to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) and fry the wontons in batches for 3 minutes or until they are light golden brown. Drain them on paper towels and serve hot, garnished with fresh dill.
