  • 1 cup canned crab meat, drained
  • 1 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Wonton wrappers
  • Oil for frying
  • Sweet and sour sauce or soy sauce for dipping


1. Prepare the Filling:

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the drained crab meat, softened cream cheese, chopped green onions, minced garlic, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, sesame oil, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.

2. Assemble the Wontons:

  • Place a small spoonful of the crab and cheese mixture in the center of each wonton wrapper.
  • Moisten the edges of the wrapper with water and fold it in half to form a triangle or rectangle, sealing the edges tightly.

3. Heat the Oil:

  • In a deep fryer or a heavy-bottomed pan, heat oil to 350°F (175°C).

4. Fry the Wontons:

  • Carefully place a few wontons at a time into the hot oil, ensuring not to overcrowd the pan.
  • Fry until the wontons are golden brown and crispy, approximately 2-3 minutes per side.

5. Drain and Serve:

  • Use a slotted spoon to remove the fried wontons and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.

6. Serve with Dipping Sauce:

  • Arrange the crispy wontons on a serving plate and serve with sweet and sour sauce or soy sauce for dipping.

7. Enjoy:

  • Crispy on the outside, creamy and flavorful on the inside – your Fried Crab Cheese Wontons are ready to be enjoyed!


  • Get creative with the wonton shapes—triangles, rectangles, or simple folds all work well.
