Crab Rangoon is fried food royalty from Chinese restaurants. They’re so crispy with just the right saltiness, yet the filling is slightly sweet from crab and cream cheese. And for as good as they taste, they are so simple to make.
But Jenn of Princess Pinky Girl claims you can make crab rangoons better at home with her recipe. We’d bet on it. Here’s why: she uses real instead of imitation crab, garlic powder, soy sauce, and chives for an unforgettably tasty filling.
She walks you through the recipe with detailed instructions, including how to fold the little wonton purses properly and fry them to crispy perfection. It’s an indulgent finger food to be remembered at your next get-together.
