Print PrintShare with Friends

Prep:

These are tasty tid bits to serve with cocktails or just as an appetizer. I usually make them every Christmas and freeze them to have on hand for company. This is not my original recipe and I can't remember where I got it but I'm glad I did find it!

  • add   1 1/2 teaspoons fresh-pressed garlic
  • add   3 small hot green chili peppers or red chili peppers
  • add   1 package wonton wrappers
  • add   1 lb fresh crab (or artificial crab)
  • add   2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • add   2 limes
  • add   1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • add   1 (250 g) package cream cheese
  • add   1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • add   2 tablespoons minced shallots
  • add   1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Combine all the ingredients (except Wonton Wraps).
  2. Place a small amount of filling in the centre of each wrap (about a tsp).
  3. Fold one corner of each square across to the opposite corner, making a triangle.
  4. Use a little water on the end of your finger to seal.
  5. Bring the two side points of the triangle up together to meet in front leaving the third tip in place.
  6. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  7. Bake in 425 degree oven (220C degrees) for about 20 min or until they are puffed and golden.
  8. The Crab bits may now be frozen and stored until you want to use them and then just heat them in a 350 degree oven for about 10 min and serve.
  9. You may also freeze them before you bake them (this is what I like to do) thaw unbaked wontons before baking.
  10. Bake in 400 degree oven for about 20 min utes.
