Homemade Crab Rangoons


Homemade Crab Rangoons 🦀


  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 block cream cheese, softened
  • Imitation crab meat (desired amount), finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2-3 tablespoons white sugar
  • Dumpling wrappers
  • Water (for sealing the wrappers)
  • Sweet chili sauce (for dipping)


  1. Heat Vegetable Oil:
    • In a pan, heat vegetable oil over medium heat. Make sure there’s enough oil to deep fry the crab rangoons.
  2. Prepare Filling:
    • In a mixing bowl, combine softened cream cheese, finely chopped imitation crab meat, salt, and white sugar. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  3. Wrap the Crab Rangoons:
    • Take a dumpling wrapper and dip your finger into a bowl of water. Wet the edges of the wrapper.
    • Place a dollop of the crab and cream cheese mixture in the center of the wrapper.
    • Fold the wrapper in half to create a triangle, pressing the edges to seal. Make sure there is no air trapped inside.
  4. Deep Fry:
    • Carefully place the sealed crab rangoons into the preheated oil.
    • Fry for 2-3 minutes per side or until they turn golden brown. Keep a close eye on them as they can cook quickly.
  5. Drain Excess Oil:
    • Once the crab rangoons are golden brown, remove them from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
  6. Serve with Sweet Chili Sauce:
    • In a small bowl, pour sweet chili sauce for dipping.
    • Arrange the freshly fried crab rangoons on a serving plate and serve them hot with the sweet chili sauce on the side.
  7. Enjoy:
    • Dive into the delightful combination of crispy crab rangoons and sweet chili sauce. Enjoy your homemade treat!


  • Be cautious while frying as crab rangoons can cook quickly and may burn if not monitored closely. Adjust the heat as needed.
  • Feel free to customize the filling by adding ingredients like green onions, garlic, or ginger for extra flavor
