Keto Crab Rangoons = The Perfect Appetizer

These Keto Crab Rangoons are the ULTIMATE crowd pleaser!

Crab Rangoons are essentially wontons stuffed with a mixture of crab, cream cheese, and spices. And they are oh so good!

We recommend you make these whenever you have a game night, cocktail hour, or fun party so your guests will be blown away by your upgraded keto appetizer!

They are perfectly crispy without being too greasy, which keeps the tasty crab & cream cheese flavor as the star of the dish!

Upgrade Your Fried Food

Typical “fried food” recipes contain lots of flour, inflammatory refined oils, and excess carbs.

To “keto-fy” the typical Chinese take-out Crab Rangoons, we upgraded the traditional wonton wrappers making them with almond flour and coconut flour to add extra fats and nutrients to the rangoons!

We then created a delicious cheesy crab mixture that has the same (if not better!) taste of the ones you find in a Chinese restaurant!

Crab Rangoon Tips

  • Roll out your dough as thin as you can get it. It should be almost transparent.
  • Soften your cream cheese before mixing it into the crab meat. You will want to fold your crab meat gently as to avoid breaking apart the lumps.
  • Don’t over fill your wontons with the mixture. It may cause your wonton wrapper to tear.
  • Fry your rangoons in coconut oil (hello healthy fats!!) at about 360°F – we recommend testing one Keto Crab Rangoon first just to make sure the temperature is perfect.
  • You can bake these too if you don't feel like frying them. Bake at 350°F for about 15 minutes.

Step by Step Instructions

These Rangoons only take 20 minutes to make and come together really quickly.

First, we will start with the wonton wrappers and then we will move to the filling.

The crab filling is then dropped onto the square wonton wrappers, which are folded up, then baked or fried. We prefer to fry our wontons in order to get deep golden brown color and crunch.

What You Need To Make These Rangoons:

Let's get cooking!

Clean Keto Crab Rangoon

Step #1. Make Your Wonton Dough

Grab all your keto wonton ingredients and measure them out.

Mix the almond and coconut flours, plus the salt together in a medium bowl. Next, whisk the egg and water together in a separate bowl.

Make a well in your dry ingredients and pour the wet ingredients in.

Incorporate all the ingredients together with a fork. Add a little bit more water if necessary.

Your dough should have a similar consistency to play-dough (like the picture below).

Step #2. Roll Out Your Wonton Dough

Transfer your dough ball to a layer of parchment paper. Then top with another layer of parchment.

Using a rolling pin, begin to roll out your dough.Keto Crab Rangoon Dough

Roll out your dough as thin as you can get it.

You want the the dough to be very thin – it should be almost transparent (like the picture below).Keto Crab Rangoon Dough

Using a knife, cut the dough into 2.5” x 2.5” squares.

Keep gathering excess dough, rolling it out again and cutting more squares. You should end up with about 20 squares.

Step #3. Make The Keto Crab Rangoon Filling

Set the wonton squares aside and get working on the yummy crab filling!

Gather the cream cheese, crab meat, salt, garlic powder, coconut aminos, and scallions

Make sure to soften your cream cheese before mixing it into the crab meat. You will want to fold in your crab meat gently as to avoid breaking apart the lumps.

Step #4. Assemble the Keto Rangoons

One at a time, place about 2 teaspoons of the filling onto each wonton square.

Fold the wonton dough in half to form a triangle shape and seal the edges by pressing lightly.

WARNING: Don’t over fill your wontons with the mixture. It may cause your wonton wrapper to tear.

Step #5. Fry Up Your Rangoons

Once all of your keto crab wontons are filled and sealed, heat 1/3 inch of coconut oil (hello healthy fats!!) in a pan.

Once the coconut oil reaches about 360°F, place the wontons in the oil and fry on both sides until golden brown.

Transfer the cooked keto crab rangoons to a wire rack to cool.

We recommend frying just one Keto Crab Rangoon first to make sure the temperature is perfect.

Don't feel like frying the wontons? You can bake them at 350°F for about 15 minutes instead.

Final Touches

Serve these Keto Crab Rangoons with a quick homemade chili sauce.

We use Thai Chili Garlic Sauce and sugar-free apricot preserves to create a sweet and spicy sauce that pairs perfectly with these rangoons.

Just mix all the ingredients in a bowl and microwave for about 30 seconds. Or you can heat all the ingredients in a saucepan, stirring until combined.
