Crab Rangoon
This has nothing to do with BBQ but after seeing Sapo's ABT's thought it would be of interest as the stuffing is very similar.

Crab Rangoon

1 pack of Cream Cheese, room temp
1 lb Crab meat, fake works
2 Tablespoons or so chopped Chive

Mix the crab meat and cream cheese until fairly soft. Add Chives and mix. Roll into wontons and deep fry until golden brown. I served this with a spring roll sauce made with Cream Sherry instead of red wine. Worked out nicely.

These are so good I have eaten them until I was sick.

The wife and I both love crab rangoon. I didn't realize it was that easy! Will give it a shot!

It is a bit of labor wrapping them all up but I love them as well. Get or make a good sweet and sour to dip them in. I made a hybrid sauce with some cream sherry I had in the cabinet. Next time I am going to add grated carrots to it as I think it helps it stick to the rangoons.

1/4 cup sugar or honey
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup Cream Sherry
2 Tablespoons Fish Sauce, maybe less
Fat pinch of salt
Pinch of ginger powder
3 teaspoons crushed red pepper flake

1/2 - 1 teaspoon corn starch or arrow root
3 tablespoons water

Put the first 6 ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil while stirring. Turn down to a simmer.

Mix the starch with the water and pour in while stirring. Stir until it thickens a little and pour into a bowl. It will thicken some more as it cools

I thought it was good. Retained a lot of the flavor of the sherry and had a bit of a bite to it.
