Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Simmer pineapple, 1/2 cup sugar, water, chili sauce, and lime juice in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook until thickened, 5–8 minutes. Puree until smooth; set aside.
  2. Blend cream cheese, cilantro, scallion, ginger, sugar, jalapeño, and lime juice in a bowl; gently fold in crab.
  3. Arrange wonton skins on a work surface. Place 1 teaspoon of crab mixture in center of each, then moisten edges with water. Fold to form a triangle, pressing to seal. Moisten the outer corners of the triangle, seal together to form a "hat," and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Heat oil to 350° in a pan over med.-high.
  4. Fry wontons in batches until golden on both sides, 2 - 3 minutes total. Drain on paper towels; serve with pineapple sauce. Fry remaining wontons in the same way.

I used this recipe as a base for my rangoons and sauce and it was wonderful. This was my first foray into oriental cooking and the rangoons turned out better than any restaurant I've been too. I didn't used cilantro this time, but will try it on the next batch.

I wish I could rate this 10+ stars!!! This was the best crab rangoon recipe on recipezaar!! Don't cheat yourself by not making the pineapple-chile sauce, it is the star of the show! The crab rangoon came out flavorful and you'll be tempted to eat them without the sauce.....but save some for the sauce!!! I used imitation crab and it was FANTASTIC!!!! No way to put enough exclamation points on this review. Thank you Seahorse, for a real crowd pleaser.
