Reduced Fat Crab Rangoon With Plum Sauce

Total Time
1hr
Prep 45 mins
Cook 15 mins

A lower fat version of this appetizer that does not skimp on flavor. Filling can be made a day in advance and brought to room temperature before cooking. Baking with vegetable cooking spray makes this a healthier alternative to deep frying. To eliminate the sugar, skip the plum sauce and use mustard (Wasabi or Chinese) for dipping.

The filling is fantastic, but I had problems baking the wontons, they ended up tough and chewy, not crisp. I will try this again, hopefully with better results. Thanks for the recipe!
