Crab and Cream Cheese Wontons
I am strangely addicted to crab wontons at Pei Wei. Quite awesome actually. Rather than driving about 30 minutes away to get them, I have decided to figure out how to make them at home. Thankfully, it was a success! (Go me!) And they tasted quite yummy. Life is good!
1 can of crab meat (or fresh)
3 green onions, chopped
8 ounces cream cheese (at room temperature)
1 egg white
Cook the crab meat in a small saute pan for about 6-7 minutes. Add to a food processor and add the green onions and cream cheese. Combine until just smooth. Meanwhile, in a small sauce pan, add oil (about an inch worth) and heat over low-to medium heat. Then add a small amount to the middle of a wonton wrapper. Using the egg white, seal the edges (I folded it like an envelope). Add the stuffed wonton to the oil and cook until golden brown on all sides. Remove from the oil. Serve with sweet and sour sauce (found at international supermarkets, like HMart or GrandMart).
