I love, love, love Crab Rangoon’s! I have never made them at home, though, so I would just wait until the once every few months we order or go out for Chinese. Well, now I don’t have to wait for that fabulous taste, and neither do you! Thanks to browsing on Pinterest a few weeks ago I found a recipe for Crab Rangoon Dip and Sesame Wonton Crisps from Foodie with Family. Okay, the recipe was for either regular deep fried rangoon’s or the dip, but I knew I would love the dip (read: I’m way to lazy to fold up and seam all those wontons…) Besides I would be making it for Appetizer Week and with the idea being the big game and recipes for it, dip just seemed more appropriate. Right? Yes, let’s go with that.
Read on after the recipe for today’s giveaway and the list of all the great recipes the participating bloggers made!
It turned out that my best friend, her husband, and her kids came over on Sunday night and we all hung out and drank while I put this together. Yes, I can drink and cook at the same time, as long as I don’t drink too much! I’m multi-talented like that My friend loved it, but her son who loves crab wouldn’t touch it. I doubt he’s ever had a Crab Rangoon though.
The Sesame Wonton Crisps are delicious, crispy, salty, with a hint of nutty flavor. I left mine whole, but you can cut them into strips before frying if you like. The dip is creamy, with a touch of heat from sriracha sauce (leave it out if you can’t do spicy) and fabulous crab flavor!
- For the Hot Crab Rangoon Dip:
- 16 ounces lump crabmeat, drained and flaked
- 2 8 ounce packages cream cheese, softened
- 4 green onions (scallions), bottom inch removed, sliced thin
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons sriracha sauce
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- For the Sesame Wonton Crisps:
- 36 wonton wrappers
- 1-2 egg whites, beaten
- ¼ cup (or less) sesame seeds
- salt and black pepper, to taste
- 2 inches peanut oil, or vegetable oil
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a large bowl combine cream cheese, sriracha sauce, and soy sauce until smooth. Gently stir in the crabmeat, sliced green onions, and garlic. Spread evenly into an oven safe dish.
- Bake for 25 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Serve warm with sesame wonton crisps or tortilla chips.
- For the Sesame Wonton Crisps:
- Heat oil over medium heat to 350 degrees F or until a wonton placed in the oil bubbles and doesn't sink.
- Brush one side of each wonton wrapper lightly with the egg white, then sprinkle with sesame seeds.
- Fry for 1-2 minutes until golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon, drain excess oil, and place on a paper towel lined plate. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Repeat with remaining wontons.
- Store leftovers at room temperature in an airtight container.
