Here's a little tip for making crab Rangoon: make sure you squeeze out all the air before sealing the wonton. If you don't a huge bubble will form when they're deep fried causing them to pop open. There are 2 bad things that occur when that happens: the filling gets very greasy; and you get very burned with spatters of hot oil.

This recipe is excellent. I did make a mistake because I made them and froze them without cooking first. Tonight, I took them out to defrost them and they did not want to seperate. However, the taste is so good. At the Oriental restaurants when I have this dish, it is usually very pastey, very thick. This recipe is light and tasty. I will make this again. We had this and geosa and that was our Friday night pizza substitute this week. Glad we left the pizza at the store.
