Baked Crab Rangoon

I love Chinese food! I know, I know..this is American Chinese…and this can also be found in many Thai restaurants but I had to include this in my Asian recipe series, that I just happened to be on. I normally do not enjoy dairy products with seafood products. There are only a few recipes that I will eat, that mix milk and fish. This is definitely one of them. I have an aversion to deep-frying and I try to avoid it whenever I can.  This is a very quick recipe, that I use as appetizers. If you don’t like having too much wonton, I would recommend trimming the wonton wrappers, before baking. It makes for easier “pop in the mouth” appetizers.

Baked Crab Rangoon

Ingredients:

1 can (6 oz) white crab meat, drained and chopped

4 oz of cream cheese, softened

2 tablespoons of mayonnaise (I used light)

1/2 teaspoon of Sriracha

2 teaspoons of chives, finely chopped with extra for garnish

ground pepper, to taste

Wonton Wrappers, circle or square

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F
  2. Combine crab meat, cream cheese, mayonnaise, Sriracha, chives and ground pepper, mixing well
  3. Grease a nonstick mini muffin tray with cooking spray
  4. Place a wonton wrapper in each muffin mold, folding to fit the mold
  5. Place about a tablespoon of crab filling in each wonton
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until crab filling starts to brown
  7. Garnish with chives

Alternatively, you can place wonton wrappers on a greased baking tray, place a teaspoon of filling in the center of each wrap and fold over wonton, using some water to seal the edges, bake for about 8 minutes and then flip over each crab rangoon and bake an additional 8 minutes. Both sides should be golden brown.

  1. Oh this just looks delicious. I love this crab appetizer, it works for any party and it works for a night at home snacking out 🙂

    • lol I totally agree about that! I am fortunate that getting wonton wrappers is quite easy for me. There are Chinese grocery stores within walking distance of my house (and their wonton wrappers are whole wheat!). They make a nice quick and easy snack.

  2. Wow those look so good, i love seafood so much specially crabs. They’re mouthwatering

    • Thank you so much 🙂 I love seafood as well! Most seafood here is very expensive and I have to travel to get good quality. Salmon and crab are probably my absolute favorite!

  3. I love this. I think I’ll make some for mothers day. Thanks so much for this post. By the way, is wonton wrappers easy to get?

  4. I LOVE crab rangoons, they’re like my favorite part of getting Chinese food! These look so great!

  5. I have a similar recipe, don’t you just love them? Great photo!

    • Thanks 🙂 Oohh when can you post yours? I would love to try your version! My husband loves crab rangoon 🙂 Thanks about the photo–my husband took it.

  6. I love these. The ones on the buffets, ahem I mean the high-class Chinese places I eat, are sometimes too hard. The dough to filling ratio is off. I like the lighter dough and the open-air quality.:)
