  • In a mixing bowl, gently combine the softened cream cheese, crabmeat, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, black pepper, and green onion.
  • Place a wonton wrapper on a clean work surface. Lay the wrapper with the corner facing up, so it looks like a "diamond" shape.
  • Brush the edges of the wrapper with the egg and place 2 teaspoons of the crab filling in the center.. Do not overfill.
  • Fold the bottom corner up to to seal the wonton in a triangle shape.
  • Fold the two remaining corners toward the center, pressing out any air surrounding the filling. Be sure to press all of the edges together firmly to seal well.
  • Keep the remaining wonton wrappers and the folded wontons covered with a damp towel to prevent drying out while working.
  • Fill a deep skillet with 2 to 3 inches of oil and allow to heat to 350°F. Use an Instant Read Thermometer to check the temperature.
  • Fry the wontons in small batches, about 5 to 6 at a time, depending on the size of your skillet.
  • Fry until wontons are golden brown, about 3 to 5 minutes, turning a couple of times during frying.
  • Once golden brown, remove and place on paper towels to drain before serving with a dipping sauce.


• Proper sealing and removal of air is essential when preparing wontons as split wontons will lose their filling and can cause dangerous oil splatters while frying.
• These wontons can be baked in an oven preheated to 400˚F. Place the prepared wontons on a parchment-lined baking sheet and spray them with cooking spray. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown.
