A traditional Rangoon is typically made with crab and deep fried in vegetable oil. In other words, they are a yummy treat that sticks to the hips. My husband and I love Chinese food, but I do not like how much of it is fried. Well, actually, I lied…I love how much of it is fried, but I just can’t eat as much of it as I did when I was in college.

Recently, Nikki from Beaute’ J’adore shared a recipe with me that made me VERY happy – a Rangoon that is baked! To top it off, it has shrimp and I love shrimp. Check it out…

Those look absolutely amazing! I need to try this!

Don’t they? I was so excited to get this recipe!

Do you by chance know the ingredients for the wonton skins?


Stacey Werner January 20, 2013 at 11:30 pm

I usually just buy them packaged from the store, but I am sure you can find a good recipe online.

These look sooo good! Too bad the boy doesn’t like shrimp. :(


Stacey Werner January 21, 2013 at 9:17 pm

Try them without the shrimp! Cecile said in a comment below that she likes them without the shrimp!


Cecile January 21, 2013 at 3:59 pm

I love them without any seafood. They are good just with the cream cheese filling!


Kecia January 21, 2013 at 5:49 pm

These look delish! I have never tried to make rangoons at home, but I will now. Plus, my husband will actually eat these – he doesn’t care for crab meat but loves shrimp!


Stacey Werner January 22, 2013 at 9:01 am

Great, Kecia! Glad you like it.


Nikki January 22, 2013 at 12:15 pm

I’m not a big seafood eater, but I would definitely love this filled with cheese! It looks so much lighter and yummier than the kind I get in buffets.


Rachel H January 23, 2013 at 1:24 am

Absolutely drool-worthy! OMG…I can’t wait to try this!


Greta January 23, 2013 at 4:58 pm

These look amazing! Much more gourmet than the kind at the Chinese food place.


Stacey Werner January 24, 2013 at 3:34 pm

I agree, Greta. Sometimes they can look so greasy and unappealing (yet they taste like heaven).


Lena January 24, 2013 at 2:01 am

It looks so delicious. Yum Yum


Erica January 26, 2013 at 11:05 am

Great pictures! These look soo good! I really like the taste of shrimp and cream cheese together :)

OMG! I have been wanting a recipe for Rangoon forever! A million thank yous. I needed this recipe to go with my orange chicken. <3


Ellen Christian February 26, 2013 at 11:45 am

This looks truly amazing. I have had the fried version many times but had no idea it could be baked too!


Lisa Weidknecht May 16, 2013 at 2:21 pm

Looks so good!!! One of my favorite foods at the asian buffet!


Bonnie May 16, 2013 at 3:59 pm

This recipe is calling my name. I love shrimp, crab…not so much.


Julie @ This Gal Cooks July 28, 2013 at 9:41 pm

These look SO good! I’m a huge sucker for crab rangoon! Pinned.
