Crab Rangoons are crispy wontons filled with cream cheese + crab (typically imitation crab), you can find them on the menu at almost any Chinese-American restaurants. Crab Rangoons have an interesting history, they originated at the tiki-style restaurant Trader Vic’s in San Francisco in the 1950’s (fun fact, Trader Vic’s inspired the name and look of Trader Joe’s) – the restaurant was Polynesian themed, yet they served Chinese food + Crab Rangoons, which seems to be a completely original invention. They have been one of the most popular appetizers for almost 70 years, the combination of extra crispy wontons and the creamy crab filling dipped in sweet chili sauce is so yummy!
I used these Wei-Chuan USA Wonton Wrappers, you can find them at any Asian Market
I buy the lump crab from Costco, you should be able to find at the seafood department at any supermarket. You can find the imitation crab sticks at any Asian market.
Chop up the crab sticks finely before using them. Most restaurants / take out places use imitation crab for crab rangoons.
