Crab rangoon's rich garlic and scallion infused cream cheese & crabmeat filling in a deep fried won ton wrapper is a tasty Polynesian appetizer!



6 oz can fancy white crabmeat, drained

8 oz cream cheese, softened to room temperature

3 green onions, minced

2 cloves minced garlic

1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce or steak sauce

2 quarts vegetable oil


  1. In a large bowl, mix cream cheese, crabmeat, garlic, green onions and Worcestershire sauce. 
  2. Place 4 individual won ton wrappers on the counter. Dip your finger in water and run it around all 4 edges of each wrapper.
  3. Place a small dollop (about 1 tablespoon) of cream cheese mixture in the center of each. 
  4. Bring two opposite corners of the won ton wrapper together and pinch, then bring the other two together and pinch, until the won ton wrapper is tightly closed.
  5. Place in oil making sure the won ton is fully covered, and fry approximately 2 minutes until golden brown. Remove with slotted spoon and place in a serving bowl lined with a paper towel. Repeat until all won tons are fried, and serve immediately.


You can substitute a small shallot for the green onions

You can use a steak sauce (such as A-1) in place of the Worcestershire sauce
