Spicy “Krab” Wontons w/ Sweet Mustard Sauce

BarstoolDirect.com

I always like to offer something a little different and more waist friendly than chips and dip at fun food gatherings and I’ve always LOVED wontons….of any flavor. I whipped up these little morsels of “yumminess” the other day as a trial run for a backyard event we’re planning this spring . I must say I was pleasantly surprised, they’re a little spicy, crabby, and fresh tasting kinda like spring….and then the sauce makes the whole thing come together!

First mix all of the filling ingredients; onion, jalapeno, Krab, cilantro, garlic paste, spicy spice, and cream cheese.

  • You can substitute the ingredients for any brand you like but I prefer to use  tried and true brands. Real crab or shrimp (or a combo) would be amazing but its not very budget friendly.Everything goes in the food processor except of course the wrappers. Pulse until all the goods are mixed and course in texture. This is where I taste for extra seasoning and cilantro. Remember the Cajun spice probably has salt and the “Krab” is naturally salty.Fill the wrappers with about a tablespoon of the mixture. Fold over into a triangle like shown below. Then take a wet fork or spoon and press the edges together. The flour in between each wonton wrapper makes it easy to handle but don’t make the mistake I’ve made several times by trying to fill the floured side; the edges won’t stick together when they’re pressed.Arrange the wonton on an oiled baking sheet or a sheet line with parchment paper (easy cleanup!) Then use spray oil for the tops.

    Bake until edges are crispy brown, about 10-12 mins.

    While the wontons are cooking whip up the sauce.  You can use soy sauce or coco aminos. I prefer the aminos because it’s healthier and adds some sweetness to the sauce. Lastly whisk in the mustard, garlic paste, stevia, and chili sauce.

    Yum, Yum!
