Crab Rangoon’s

by Emy

Crab Rangoon. Crispy fried wontons stuffed with a delicious crab and creamy filling made of cream cheese and crab meat. These are best served with sweet Thai chili sauce.



  • 18 pcs wonton wrappers
  • 2 cups avocado oil or neutral tasting oil
  • water for sealing wontons


  • ½ cup + 2 tbsp imitation crab meat or canned real crab meat
  • ½ cup cream cheese (I used Philadelphia Light Cream Cheese)
  • 1 tablespoon green onion finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon regular soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil omit if you’re allergic
  • 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
  • ½ teaspoon white granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

Serve with:

  • sweet Thai Chili sauce


  • Chop imitation crab meat into 2 cm wide pieces and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, soften room temperature cream cheese with a spatula until smooth.
  • Add imitation crab meat into your bowl of cream cheese, along with the rest of filling ingredients as listed.
  • With a fork, mix very well until crab meat breaks down.
  • Add ¾ tablespoon of the filling into the center of the wonton wrapper. Using your fingers, dab a bit water along the edges of the wrapper.
  • Then lift two opposing corners of the wrapper and pinch only the tip of it.
  • Then lift the adjacent corners and seal them. Make sure to pinch them very well to prevent leakage as you fry, especially the tip of the wonton. (See step by step images in above blog post.

Deep Frying Method

  • In your pan, add oil and bring to medium heat or 325 F. Once oil is hot, add crab rangoons in two separate batches. Do not overcrowd the oil. Fry 2 minutes on both sides, until golden brown. Remove and transfer to cooling rack or a paper towel lined plate. Note: Frozen Rangoons can be fried without thawing for the same amount of time.

Air Frying Method

  • Spray air fryer basket with enough oil. Pre-heat air fryer to 350 F. Place uncooked crab rangoons in a single layer with enough space around each one. Do not over lap. You may need to air fry in batches. Lightly spray oil over the rangoons. Tip: Brush oil on the outside of each wonton for more crispiness! Air Fry for 6-8 minutes until crispy.
  • Allow this to cool down a bit before enjoying. Serve with store bought sweet chili sauce or any sauce of your liking.

To Freeze Leftovers:

  • Place a large freezer friendly bag on a large plate or small baking tray. Place leftover rangoons into the bag in a single layer giving each one enough space. Seal the bag and place bag on top of plate/tray into freezer. After 1 hour of freezing, remove plate/tray. This keeps the rangoons in a single layer and prevents them from overlapping.

    They will last 2 months in the freezer (until freezer burn forms) and can be fried from frozen.
