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

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.
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!
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?
🙂 outside of chinese stores, I normally find them in the produce section near the vegan food. I hope that helps!
I LOVE crab rangoons, they’re like my favorite part of getting Chinese food! These look so great!
Thank you 🙂 Congrats on finishing your first year of law school! It is hard work and I am so happy you made it through!
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.
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.:)
🙂 Fixed. My head is in the clouds today with allergies lol. I hope you try these and enjoy them! Happy Cooking!
