Asian wontons. They are so good. You can get the wonton wrappers in good supermarkets or Asian stores, fresh or frozen. Let’s get started.


A packet of wonton wrappers, fresh or frozen
A packet of cream cheese
1 green onion
1 can of crab meat
1 tablespoon crab paste with bean oil
Some vegetable oil

If you use frozen wonton wrappers, let them thaw in the fridge overnight. Protect them with a wet kitchen paper towel.
Chop the green onion. The cream cheese should be at room temperature. Mix the cream cheese with the crab meat and the crab paste with bean oil. Add the green onion and mix. Once you have the filling, you will have to fill the wontons.
Put a wrapper in front of you with one point towards you. Then put some filling in the middle of it. About a spoonful. Brush with water or beaten egg the rims of the wrapper. Then close the wrapper from one side to the other. Now press the wider side to the more narrow side to get two pointed parts that will have to be moved so that they get together. Repeat this with the rest of wrappers. You can also prepare the wontons in different shapes: like dumplings, like triangles... It is up to you.
You can fry them in a pan with hot oil. But you can also bake them in an oven. In this case, first brush them with oil. If you fry them, heat the oil and they fry them on every side. If you bake them, the oven must not be too hot. Bake them for over 10-15 minutes.
Once cooked, leave them on kitchen paper towel for a while.
They are wonderful. You can serve them as an appetizer with your favourite dip. Enjoy!
