Directions:
1. Mix all ingredients together well.
2. Place 1 - 2 T. crab mix on wonton wrapper, wet side to create seal.
3. Fold four edges together & pinch side seams.
4. Deep fry 2 minutes or until desired crispiness. Drain on paper towels. Serve with sweet & sour sauce.

*Notes: Original recipe calls for 2 cans crab, drained. I use less due to mixture gets crumbly when fried (too much crab), imitation crab is also okay.
 

Sweet & Sour Sauce


Ingredients:

⅓ c. distilled white vinegar
2 tsp. vegetable oil
⅔ c. unsweetened pineapple juice
2 T. ketchup
3 T. brown sugar

Salt to taste

Directions:
Directions:
1. In small saucepan over medium-low heat, whisk together vinegar & cornstarch.
2. Add oil, pineapple juice3, ketchup, brown sugar & salt; whisking constantly until mixture is heated through.
Note: I usually add all ingredients together except the cornstarch - mix cornstarch (more than listed) with a little hot water & then add to sauce to thicken it. (starch clumps if adding alone afterward.)

*Serve with Zilla's Crab Rangoon recipe.
