MYO Crab Rangoons

4 (80%) 25 votes

Crab Rangoons are a delicious appetizer for any occasion, but make a wonderfully simple Game Day treat that can be made ahead of time or on the spot!
Who needs expensive take-out when you can make an entire batch of 16-20 for the price of 4-5?!


During the summer and fall months we love to spend the day on the coast, crabbing. It’s great fun, but at the end of day we’re blessed with several packages of fresh lump crabmeat to freeze for delectable appetizers like this one!

You’ll Need:
1 pkg cream cheese

1 c. fresh crab meat, (or 1 can drained and flaked)

2 teaspoons red onion, chopped very fine

1/2 teaspoon Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon light soy sauce

freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1 green onion, finely sliced

1 large clove garlic, smashed, peeled, and finely minced

Wonton Wrappers – make your own

Combine cream cheese, red onion, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, green onion and garlic, blending until smooth. Fold in the crab meat.


Place prepared wonton wrappers on a plate or clean surface.


Add a rounded teaspoon of filling to the middle, lightly wet finger with a bit of water and wipe along the entire outer edge of the wonton


Carefully fold over the wonton wrapper, pressing the dampened edges together to form a seal. (Failure to seal the edge will result in the filling spilling out during frying!)


Bring the 2 furthest edges together, pinch to seal. Set aside on a clean plate (covered lightly with a damp paper towel to prevent drying out) while preparing the rest of the rangoons. They can either be frozen for later or deep fried immediately.

They take approximately 2-3 minutes to cook, turn once for even cooking. Drain on paper towels.


If you would prefer to bake these rather than fry them, line mini-muffin tins with the wontons, add a scoop of rangoon filling, pinch the tops and bake at 425 for 8-10 minutes.

  1. i love these things and they’re usually pretty expensive for an order of three wontons when purchased at the local chinese restaurant or panda express. looking forward to trying this recipe out!:lets-eat:

  2. oh yum! this looks super tasty! i wonder if you can use imitation crab though?

    real crab is awesome but pricey…

      I find imitation crab tastes better in these. Less salty and much cheaper.

  3. I’ve made something similar at home. The notable differences are I use white onions, powdered garlic (used conservatively), imitation crab, and Siracha sauce instead of Worcestershire.

  4. I make a similar version but it is baked, a healthier option. Spray a baking sheet with canola oil, place wrappers on sheet and spray them with canola oil. Bake at 18 minutes at 350 degrees.
