Crab And Cheese Wontons

Crab & Cheese Wontons




  • 1 (14 oz) package small wonton wrappers
  • 2 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger root, minced
  • ½ tsp fresh cilantro, chopped
  • ½ tsp Zatarain’s parsley flakes
  • 3 Tbsp Tabasco soy sauce
  • 1 lb crabmeat, shredded
  • 1 quart oil for frying 


Heat oil in a large heavy skillet or deep fryer to 360 degrees. In a small bowl, mix together cream cheese, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, parsley, cilantro and crabmeat. Place ½ to 1 tsp of the cream cheese mixture into the center of each wonton wrapper. Fold the wonton wrapper over the stuffing to make a triangle or a half moon, depending on the shape of the wonton wrappers you have purchased. Moisten the edges with a little water, and seal. Place prepared wontons under a slightly moist paper towel until ready for frying. Add 3 or 4 wontons to the hot oil, and cook until golden brown, turning once. Set aside on paper towels to drain. Repeat until all wontons have been fried. Serve hot.
