Ingredients Notes For Crab Rangoon Egg Rolls:

    • Crab Meat: Use canned crab meat for convenience or fresh lump crab meat for a more upscale version. For a budget-friendly alternative, imitation crab meat works well too.
    • Cream Cheese: The base of the filling, ensuring a rich and creamy texture. Allow it to soften for easier mixing.
    • Green Onions: Adds a hint of sharpness and color to the filling.
    • Garlic and Worcestershire Sauce: Enhance the filling with depth of flavor and a slight tang.


  • Egg Roll Wrappers: The key to achieving that crispy, golden exterior. Available at most grocery stores in the refrigerated section near produce or Asian ingredients.
  • Oil for Frying: Use a neutral oil with a high smoke point, such as vegetable or canola oil, for frying.

Recipe Steps:

    1. Prepare the Filling: In a bowl, mix together the softened cream cheese, crab meat, chopped green onions, minced garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and any other desired seasonings until well combined.
    1. Assemble the Egg Rolls: Place an egg roll wrapper on a clean surface, with one corner pointing towards you. Spoon a portion of the filling onto the lower third of the wrapper. Fold the bottom corner over the filling, then fold in the sides and roll tightly, sealing the final edge with a bit of water.
    2. Fry the Egg Rolls: Heat oil in a deep fryer or a large, deep skillet to 350°F (175°C). Fry the egg rolls in batches until golden brown and crispy, about 2-3 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels to remove excess oil.
    3. Serve: Serve the crab rangoon egg rolls hot, with sweet and sour sauce, soy sauce, or a homemade dipping sauce on the side.

Storage Options:

  • Refrigerate: Store any leftover egg rolls in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
  • Reheat: Reheat in an oven or toaster oven at 375°F (190°C) until crispy and heated through.
