Are you guilty of going to some type of Chinese restaurant and over indulging in those melt in your melt, crispy but creamy, wontons? After the episode, if you’re anything like me, you immediately regret the amount of those tiny fried fritters you ate, because who can only eat one? One is the serving size you would need to have in order to keep your appetizer on the not super high end of the caloric spectrum. Eating one of things, especially things which are tantalizing, is virtually impossible. Want to be able to eat 4? Well, here is a recipe, which again I found through my favorite author- Hungry Girl, that allows you to indulge in 4 WITHOUT guilt! I took Hungry Girl’s recipe and spun it to make it my own. Below is the link to her original, here is mine!
Original Crab Ragoonies: http://www.hungry-girl.com/newsletters/raw/1464
Spicy Crab Wontons
1 large bundle of green onions, chopped
2 wedges of French Onion Laughing Cow Cheese
1/4 cup fat free cream cheese
1lb imitation crab
2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
1 1/2 tbsp garlic (its my fav)
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper (wondered why spicy is in the title?)
1 tsp lemon pepper
2 tsp cracker black pepper
Preheat to 375 degrees. Add the first 3 ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Finely chop the crab (a food processor works the best!!). Add all other ingredients, except the wonton papers, into the mixing bowl and mash up. Taste to make sure the seasoning is to your liking. Spray a cookie sheet with non stick cooking spray. Place a spoonful of mixture into a wonton paper and create a pretty triangle, using water to make the ends stick. Arrange the wontons on the cookie sheet just slightly separated. Cook for 12-14 minutes depending on desired crunch-y-ness. Enjoy!
TIP: I paired 4 wontons with 1/2 a bag of steamed broccoli, carrots, and cauliflower with a light cheese sauce ($1.92/ bag at WalMart). ‘Twas tasty!
