  • 9 ounce crab meat 3 cans*, drained
  • 8 ounce cream cheese 1 package, softened
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce low sodium
  • 35 wonton wrappers
  • water
  • vegetable oil for frying


  • Make the filling: Mix the crab, cream cheese, green onion, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and sesame oil together in a bowl.
  • Wrap: Brush the edges of the wonton wrapper with a bit of water. Add 2 tsp of the crab mixture to the center of the wrapper. Bring two diagonally opposite corners of the wonton wrapper up and pinch them together. Bring the other two corners up and pinch them into the middle to create a peak. Squeeze all the edges to ensure they're sealed. Repeat with remaining wonton wrappers and crab filling.
  • Fry: Fill a pot with 4-5" of oil. Bring the oil to 350F over medium-high heat. Adjust the heat as necessary to keep the heat at 350F. Fry the wontons in batches as to not overcrowd the pot for 3-5 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp.
  • Finish: Let the wontons cool on a drying rack or paper towel lined plate.


  1. * A small can of crab meat will state 4.25 oz on the can, but you will get 3 oz of meat after the water has been drained.
  2. Your leftovers will last 3-4 days refrigerated. Store in an airtight container or sealable freezer bag.
  3. For freezing see instructions above.
