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.
