Shrimp Cream Cheese RangoonsFrom rebeccalea 8 years ago
- 24 wonton wrappers (from your produce section) shopping list
- 1 bag of peeled, veined precooked small or medium shrimp (rinsed) shopping list
- 1 tbsp. Minced garlic shopping list
- 2 tbsp. butter or margarine shopping list
- 1-2 pkg. cream cheese shopping list
- vegetable oil shopping list
- water shopping list
How to make it
- Saute garlic and butter in skillet. Add shrimp and saute til shrimp is heated through.
- Add vegetable oil to Wok or deep skillet. I would say about 1 1/2 to 2 inches deep. Start on medium heat and check by lightly flicking water into oil. If it pops, it's ready.
- Chop shrimp in food chopper until either very small pieces or fine. Mix shrimp in bowl with cream cheese. I would take whatever garlic/butter mixture that's still in the pan and mix it in for additional flavor. I usually mix this then just make however many rangoons this will make. Number changes everytime.
- Set out wonton wrappers and add shrimp/cheese mixture in middle of wonton wrapper. A level to moderate spoonful will probably be enough. If you put too much in, you won't be able to pinch the wrapper shut.
- Once you've added the shrimp/cheese mixture, get a small bowl/cup of water to set next to you. Pull up the edges of the wonton wrappers and crimp the tops together. Pinch the top and bottom together in the middle, then the sides. It will resemble the shape of a + sign when you're done. Dip your fingers into the water and pinch again. The water will keep the tops together while frying.
- Once your oil is ready, slowly drop rangoons into oil. I would recommend a metal slotted spatula since you need to drain them as you pull them out. Once the rangoons start turning golden brown, pull them out onto paper towels to drain/soak. The cooking time should only be 2-3 minutes per rangoon. Remember, the bigger the pan, the more you can cook at one time.
- Once drained, put on serving plate with sides of sweet & sour sauce or any other Asian sauce for a delicious appetizer.
