I have shared recipes for wontons in the past, first my Jalapeno Cream Cheese Wontons, then my Crispy Pork Wontons and most recently my Strawberry and Nutella Wontons. For this wonton recipe I thought I would go back to where my love affair with wontons started, the crab wonton. When you go to Asian restaurants these may be called anything from crab wontons to crab puffs to crab rangoon, but either way they are essentially the same thing. A mixture of crab or imitation crab and cream cheese wrapped in a wonton wrapper and fried until golden brown. If that wasn’t delicious enough, to add just a little something extra to this recipe I decided to throw in some fresh ginger, and green onions.
Usually when I order these at restaurants they use imitation crab but I figured since I live in the great northwest it seems fitting to use fresh dungeness crab meat. However, it can get pretty spendy so feel free to substitute canned crab or imitation crab if you would like. The flavor will be slightly different but it will still be delicious.
As much as I wanted to eat all of them in one sitting, I figured my waistline wouldn't respond well so I only fried up a few and froze the rest for future cravings. Just lay them in a single layer on a cookie sheet and place them in the freezer until frozen. After they are frozen transfer them to a freezer bag. When the craving strikes, just defrost a bag and pop them in the fryer. Enjoy!
