Crab Wantons

This is another recipe using wanton skins. I like to make this the same month as the taco wantons, so I do not let any of the skins go to waste! This is another family favorite, mostly because it is deep fried. If you are not a fish eater, I bet you will like these. The crab is more of just a filler item, you may not even realize it is there!

Crab Wantons

1 pkg cream cheese
1/2 lb crab meat (I use two 6 oz cans)
2 TBSP Parmesan cheese
1 chopped scallion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 egg
wanton skins
oil for frying

Heat oil to 375. Combine cream cheese, crab meat, Parmesan cheese, scallion and garlic in a bowl with an electric mixer. When combined, season with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg and 1 tbsp water. Place about 1 tbsp crab mixture in the center of the wanton, fold in half into a triangle, brush with egg and repeat with remaining filling. Fry in batches for 3-4 minutes, or until golden brown. Let drain on a paper towel. Serve with Thai chili dipping sauce.
