Love take out? You can make it at home! My hubby loves Crab Wontons, and although you can easily fry these babies like most restaurants do, I prefer to bake them since we inevitably will eat way to many! Baking them still gives you a crispy result and this filling is amazing!
BAKED CRAB WONTONS
Begin with softened Cream Cheese as the base to the filling.
You can use real or imitation Crab for the wontons. I find imitation to be just fine. (Not to mention cheaper!)
A dash of Worcestershire Sauce. (I know! Totally NOT what you normally think of with asian cooking...but it makes the flavors POP!)
A splash of Fish Sauce. (Remember the Fish Sauce we used in the Garlic Chicken Low Mien???)
A little diced garlic.
Diced green onions. (From my window sill. Are you growing green onions from scraps? Check out how HERE)
Finally, a couple of dashes of Soy Sauce.
Grab your Wonton Wrappers and lay out six or so. I find it easier to work in batches. Scoop the filling out and plop into center of wrappers.
Moisten your fingers with a little water and rub along the edges of the wrapper.
There are several ways you can fold your Wontons. I go for easy. The simple Triangle works for me. Fold opposite corners together.
Press and seal your triangle. (It's important to seal everywhere. You don't want your filling spilling out!)
Place your sealed Wontons on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray. When you have a pan full, spray the tops with a little cooking spray and place in 400˚ oven for 10 minutes. Flip the Wontons and cook for 3-5 minutes more or until edges are brown and crisp.
Try not to grab one right off the pan and eat it! They are HOT!!!! (This I know from experience...It's not worth it!)
Serve with your favorite sweet & sour sauce or make your own Asian Dipping Sauce. (Recipe HERE)
These will be gone before two blinks of an eye!
