  • 1 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp Onion
  • 1 tsp Garlic minced
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon juice
  • 8 oz. cream cheese softened
  • 24 Wonton wrappers


  • In a fryer, or dutch oven heat corn oil to 350°F
  • In a pan over medium heat warm olive oil, then add onions and garlic and saute for 2-3 minutes.
  • In a large bowl combined crab meat, onion, garlic, lemon juice, and cream cheese.
  • Combine egg and water in a small bowl to make an egg wash.
  • Lay the wonton wrapper on a flat surface and lightly brush outside edges of wonton with egg wash.
  • Place a small scoop of crab mixture in the center of the wrapper and fold it over to make a triangle. Press gently on the edges to make sure they are sealed.
