Makes about 30

This falls under the heading of "Don't make the same thing all the time". They're delicious, simple and different - plus they're baked, not fried. I would try to insist on fresh crab, but there's no point. You're going to use what you want and besides - canned in this case is actually not that bad. But if you do use the canned, buy the 'lump'.

Ingredients

  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 3 green onions, sliced very thin
  • 1 cup crab meat, approximately
  • 1 tablespoon Asian hot sauce (Sriracha)
  • 1 package won ton wrappers, I like the round ones

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 400
  2. Mix all ingredients well in bowl, except wrappers
  3. Put about a teaspoon and a half of mixture in center of each wrapper
  4. Dip finger tips in water and wet edges of wrapper lightly and fold in half - try to remove as much air as possible
  5. Seal tightly and place won tons on baking sheet coated with cooking spray
  6. Bake until they start to brown - should be about 15 to 20 minutes
  7. While they cook, make the dipping sauce:
  8. 3 tablespoons soy
  9. 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
  10. 1 teaspoon sugar
  11. 1 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
  12. 1 teaspoon green onion, finely chopped
  13. Mix all ingredients and serve on the side
