Great recipe! The cilantro and ginger give it some nice flavor- and there's actually crab in it!!!! Nice! Most chinese restaraunts serve "cream cheese wontons" rather than actual "crab rangoons". If you're a fan of crab rangoons offered at these types of places (esp. buffets), cut the crab in 1/2, or even 3/4. Also- crab rangoons take a LONG time to make- the prep, the "stuffing", and the frying, that doesn't mean they suck, it just means they take time! I've sometimes used it as a conversation piece to a dinner party, while the guests are trickling in, I'm assembling them, and we all gather in the kitchen and talk while they're frying. They're gobbled off the platter as fast as i can make them. They're great with sweet and sour sauce. Also- as the recipe says- this recipe makes 10 servings! That's a lot of crab rangoon (which is NEVER a bad thing in my book!).
2 suggestions- if you want a smoother texture- use a food processor to finely chop the ingredients before mixing in the cream cheese.
AND- for added flavor- green onion (or any finely chopped onion) and garlic also add good flavor.
Thanks for a great recipe!
