Hey there, gluten-free food enthusiasts! Today, we’re embarking on a delicious journey into the world of Crab Rangoon – a Chinese-American classic that’s usually wrapped up in gluten-loaded goodness. Fear not, my gluten-sensitive amigos, because we’re making this delectable treat without the wheat fuss!


Crab Rangoon, believed to have originated from the Polynesian-themed Trader Vic’s restaurant in the 1950s, quickly became a staple in Chinese-American cuisine. Classically made with cream cheese and crab filling, our gluten-free version ensures that everyone can partake in the crunchy joy.

Ingredients for Gluten-Free Crab Rangoon:

  • · 1 package gluten-free wonton wrappers
  • · 8 oz lump crab meat, drained and flaked
  • · 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • · 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • · 1 clove garlic, minced
  • · 1 teaspoon gluten-free soy sauce
  • · 1/2 teaspoon gluten-free Worcestershire sauce
  • · 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • · Salt and pepper, to taste
  • · Oil, for frying

Instructions for Gluten-Free Crab Rangoon:

  1. Mix the Crabby Filling: In a bowl, do a happy dance by combining the flaked crab meat, softened cream cheese, finely chopped green onions, minced garlic, gluten-free soy sauce, gluten-free Worcestershire sauce, sesame oil, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Mix it until you're convinced it's the best filling ever.
  2. Wrapper Love: Lay out your gluten-free wonton wrappers, and grab a teaspoon of that glorious crab mixture. Plop it right in the center of each wrapper.
  3. Seal the Deal: Wet the edges of the wonton wrapper with a touch of water, then fold it in half to form a triangle. Press those edges like you're sealing a secret message.
  4. Rangoon Sculpting: Now, take the two corners of your triangle and bring them together. Seal it with a bit more water. You're basically folding them into a hug – a delicious, crunchy hug.
  5. Heat Up the Oil Party: In a pan, pour in enough oil to make your Crab Rangoon feel like they're at a pool party. Heat it to about 350°F (180°C). We're aiming for crispy perfection.
  6. Fry Away: Gently place your triangular treasures into the hot oil. Fry them for around 2-3 minutes per side until they're golden and irresistibly crispy. Don't overcrowd the pan – we want each Rangoon to have its moment.
  7. Crispy, Crunchy Victory: Retrieve your golden wonders from the oil using a slotted spoon. Let them rest on a plate lined with a paper towel to soak up any excess oil.
  8. Dip and Devour: Serve these gluten-free Crab Rangoon beauties with your favorite gluten-free dipping sauce. Sweet and sour, soy sauce, or a chili-infused concoction – the choice is yours.
