May these 2 crab meat wonton recipes give you some ideas to create your own.

Fresh crab meat wrapped into little bundles is a delight to eat. Here are 2 wonton recipes to kickstart your adventure. If you have leftover crab meat, use them for these crab meat wontons. 

My dad used to like to buy food in large quantities and throw food parties with the extended family. His favourite is durian but crab is also popular. There are always leftovers and my grandmother will have to find ways to use them up. 

She has used leftover crab meat in fried rice, rice congee, and wontons. I would like to share these 2 recipes.

The first recipe is a traditional wonton boiled and served in soup. The next one is a crab rangoon recipe.

DIY or ready-packed crab meat?

Unless you have leftover crab meat from other meals, I suggest buying ready-packed crab meat. Removing crab meat from whole crabs takes time.

There are now a lot choices to choose from at Amazon: canned, frozen and even fresh

Recipe 1. Crab wonton recipe with pork
