These Spicy “Krab” Wontons with Sweet Mustard Sauce are really so good and so easy! When you don’t feel like spending a lot or money for the seafood taste, Krab is the way to go.
These wontons are a little different and more waist friendly than chips and dip at fun food gatherings…like Super Bowl Sunday. And who doesn’t love a crispy wontons snack?
I whipped up these little morsels of “yumminess” the other day as a trial run for a backyard event we are 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 dance in your mouth!
Krab Wontons Ingredients and Assembly
- 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 coarse 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.
Ready to pop in the oven!
Sweet Mustard Sauce
- 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.
