Hi, Kristy in the Rada Kitchen, today I’m making a recipe out of our 101 Recipes with Cream Cheese cookbook, this has 101 recipes that use cream cheese. Today I’m making Crab Meat Rangoons, just as good as those Chinese restaurant ones, and they’re fun to make! So let’s get started.

So here I have an 8 ounce package of imitation crab meat. You can use real crab meat. You’ll want to chop this really fine. Now to chop up this crab meat I’m using the chef’s dicer, the Rada Cutlery Chef, super sharp blade, has that squared blade, so if you have really thick fruits and vegetables it will easily slice with that. You can filet with it. I’m using it today to chop up this crab meat. It also works good to cut the joints of chicken wings.

Once you have your crab finely chopped you’re going to add it to a bowl with 8 ounces of cream cheese, and you’ll want to soften that cream cheese. And to that we’re going to add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. And we’re just going to stir that all together. Once you have your cream cheese, crab meat and lemon juice mixed, if you want you can add some pepper, then you’ll need these wonton wraps, little sheets you find in the refrigerated part of the grocery store, and I think they’re like 4 x 4. You’ll take a tablespoon of the filling, and with an egg white, you’ll go around two sides, it’ll act like a glue, then you just fold it over and press it down. If you get too much filling you won’t be able to wrap it over, so be careful. You can use a pastry brush or your finger for the egg white around the edge. Fold it over and seal.

So now in my frying pan, actually a fondue pot, I like anything where you can control the temperature, I have this set at 350, 325. You can tell it’s hot, because it’s bubbling. Now I’m just going to gently add our prepared rangoons. Just be careful you don’t touch the hot oil. You can see the little bubbles on top of the wontons as it cooks. You turn them over and see they’re getting a little golden, so just flip them over to get the other side brown.

Now you can see they’re nice and golden brown, they’re extra crispy, you want to drain them but they’re best if you serve them hot. They’d be good with sweet and source sauce or teriyaki sauce, and those are Crab Meat Rangoons.
