  • 1 cube Kraft Philadelphia Regular Cream Cheese, room temperature (8 oz.)
  • 2 oz crab meat or 2 sticks imitation crab meat, finely diced
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 20 wonton wrappers
  • oil, for deep frying


  1. Mix all the cream cheese, crab meat, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Stir to blend well. Place about 1 tablespoon of the cream cheese filling in the middle of a wonton wrapper. Dab some water on the outer edges of the wonton wrapper and fold the two ends of the wrapper together. Fold the other two ends to make a tiny parcel pictured below.  Pinch to seal tight and make sure that there is no leakage.
  2. Heat up a pot of oil for deep-frying and fry the crab rangoon until golden brown. Dish out with a strainer or slotted spoon, draining the excess oil by laying the crab rangoon on a dish lined with paper towels. Let the crab rangoon cools down a bit before serving them with sweet and sour sauce.

Recipe Notes

Use real crab meat if possible. Don't serve the crab Rangoon immediately after deep-frying as the filling will be too hot! To make the sweet and sour Crab Rangoon dipping sauce, please refer to my sweet and sour pork recipe.
