Today I am sharing one of my favorite items to get in an Asian restaurant, Crab Rangoon. I think they are a purely American addition to the Asian restaurant scene. According to wikipedia they were introduced at the St. Louis World Fair in 1904. Now, didn't you want to know that?
So please enjoy this. I have to say, they were fantastic. We will be having these again, I am sure of it!
Imitation crab- one "leg" chopped
the green stem of 1 green onion - very thin slices
Heat oil to deep fry... whatever method you usually use to deep fry
Prepare the wanton
Put one small ball of cream cheese on wanton then a few pieces of crab and a few pieces of green onion.
Here we go!
It will only take a few minutes. DO NOT leave them. You will want to flip them after about a minute to get both sides golden brown.
Remove from oil and place on paper towel.
A little duck sauce is great for dipping!
This is SO easy, really! My friend Stacey inspired me and now, all I can do is think of all the wonderful things I can put in these Wanton wrappers!
A little secret... they work GREAT for ravioli too!
