Meal FAIL: Crab Wontons

Why can’t I cook crab?!

The Tale of Crab FAIL

Meal FAILWell, I stayed home from class tonight, you see, I wasn’t feeling well.

I thought, perhaps, some comfort food might brighten my mood.

The evening began so well…

Meal FAIL cookingOne teaspoon of crab and cream cheese (almost, goodness, it seemed to be too much) wrapped neatly, or not so neatly, I’m not that good at it, in a tiny Wonton square.

skinnyshae not a cook not a chef FAIL…patiently waiting for their canola oil bath.

Hot oil at 350 degrees FThe water oil had to be just the right temperature, you see, or the little triangles would go Goldilocks and complain, hiss and wheeze.

hot oil bathThe evening began so well… but the crab wontons turned on me.

They turned on me.

deep fried air pocketsAir pockets? But, no! I sealed them with water… egg wash, you say?

But the recipe simply said, “water.”

You see it simply said, “water.”

Crab & Cream Cheese Wontons
8 oz cream cheese, softened
half small onion, finely chopped
½ tsp soy sauce, regular or light
¼ tsp garlic powder
⅓ cup crab claw meat, finely chopped
1 package wonton wrappers
Water, for sealing wontons
½ quart  canola oil

Blend ingredients. Drop one teaspoonful on each wonton wrapper, just slightly off-center. Fold in half diagonally and seal with water, forming a triangle. Fry in hot canola oil until crispy and light golden brown, and then…

…complaining and hissing and wheezing and BOOM!

FAIL crab wontons.

Foodie FAIL you would like to share? It’s always crab… or chili.
