Ragoons, while always delicious, are not your typical go-to health snack. They are generally time-consuming and full of calories. This quick Skinny Crab Rangoon recipe by TK member Dara of Generation Y Foodie, however, takes about 15 minutes, and is only 41 calories per ragoon!
You’re going to start with wonton wrappers, lump crab meat, Worcestershire sauce, curry powder, ground ginger, cayenne pepper, reduced fat cream cheese, and washed and chopped scallions.
Heat the oven to 375˚F. Spray a muffin tin with olive oil spray and push a wonton wrapper into each tin.
In a mixing bowl, combine the crab (you have to make sure you bought lump crab) with the Worcestershire sauce.
Sprinkle in the curry, ginger, and cayenne pepper.
Add the cream cheese and mix it all together.
Fold in the scallions, mashing with a fork.
Spoon the mixture into the wonton wrappers.
Brush the ends of the wonton wrappers with water so that the tops can be sealed together.
Fold the wontons, sealing the edges with your fingers. Bake for 10 minutes or until the ends are slightly browned.
You can garnish these with some greens, and you’re ready to eat! These would make fantastic party food because they are bite-sized, classy-looking, and there’s no mess.
Thanks for the recipe, Dara!

I haven’t heard of rangoons before but I love crab and a bit of spice so these sound fabulous to me! They must be healthier than won tons as, in my experience, they are usually deep fried but these are baked. Looking forward to trying them out.
