• Dumplings are humble and homey. They make people smile. I have loved them since childhood, and this site focuses on cooking and finding the tastiest morsels. It's also the companion to my cookbook, Asian Dumplings.

« Does Crab Rangoon Deserve to be an Asian Dumpling Classic? | Main | Spring Cleaning: New ADT Recipe Index »



Brian Gabriel

Chef Nicholas Zhou's Chinese cookbook at www.cookchinese.info has about 500 authentic recipes. There are about 30 seafood recipes to go with this great Crab Rangoon recipe.


OK, don't laugh but I'm fine with lactose but intolerant to crab meat. Seriously, I'm allergic to Iodine so all those brown/purple/salt-living critters cause a problem.

But I'm terribly intrigued by the idea of a wonton with cream cheese in it! I make my own wrappers (out of duress, they can't be bought locally) and I've been doing traditional pork/cabbage fillings and chicken curry but I'd love some more savoury but not seafood ideas.

Cream cheese and green onions, hmmm. *ponder*

The ones we purchased were horrible. I may give your recipe a chance. Thanks for sharing

Sylvia -- I love home wrappers so go for it! Whatever you put into the filling will taste great.

What about if you mixed curry into the cream cheese? Then dipped it in chutney.

Tuty -- Give this crab Rangoon recipe a whirl. It's incredibly simple.

Crab Rangoon is sort of the Philadelphia Roll of dumplings. I loved the ones at Trader Vic's in San Francisco before it closed, since they actually contained crab, and were a great accompaniment to all those sweet umbrella drinks. I might have to try this recipe.

Andrea Nguyen

Try it out Grace. You can put lotsa crab in the filling and eat as many crab Rangoon as your heart desires.


Growing up in Minnesota, I had no idea whether crab rangoon was legitimate or not, but I did know it was certainly tasty! Thanks for the recipe, I cannot wait to try your version, I had made my own to try to replicate it, but not knowing the Trader Vic connection also left out the key ingredient of a nice tropical drink.

Pair it with reds, blacks, and greys for a nouveau riche opulence, or tone it down with shades of cocoa, gold and taupe for an aristocratic safariadf vibe. Or simply appreciate it from afar and let its daring energy set the mood for a wonderful weekend! xo
