Crab Wontons *Lauren Perry*


oil for frying
crab meat or imitation crab meat
brick of cream cheese
bunch of green onions chopped
wonton skins (these can usually be found in the produce section by the salads)
sweet red chili sauce
pinch of garlic salt

heat a cup or 2 of oil in a frying pan or wok
leave cream cheese out at room temp and put in a bowl
chop up crab meat and green onions, throw into bowl with cream cheese
add a dash or 2 of garlic salt and mix bowl of crab mixture by hand
spoon out a teaspoon of mixture and put in 1 corner of the square wonton
wet finger and make an L shape along wonton skin. Fold dry corner of wonton to the wet corner (it will look like a triangle at this point) and add pressure to the ends to make sure that it is sealed off.
Add the wontons (about 2-4 at a time) to the hot oil, use a spatula or tongs to flip them after about a minute until each side is golden. Let the oil run off of the wonton back into the pan/wok. Remove from heat and add to a plate with paper towel.
Serve warm with a red thai chili sauce, it is wonderful!
