Get some crab meat, pre-made wonton wrappers (Happy Belly brand is available in superstores in the frozen section) and make some of theeeese!!!!

This simple starter comes together effortlessly, and is enjoyed in the same way! The creamy crab mixture and chili soy sauce are a great combo – don’t knock it until you try it.


4 cups of crabmeat (de-shelled and finely chopped)

1 tbsp Smoked Paprika

2 sprigs of chopped spring onion

Half a cup of cream cheese (I use smoked salmon flavour)

Salt & Pepper

Wonton wrappers or Dumpling wrappers


To serve:

A bushel of chopped Coriander

Half a cup of Soy sauce

Splash of fish sauce sweetened with sugar

Finely chopped Garlic

Fresh chillies

Sesame seed



Mix all your ingredients. Pop teaspoonsful in the middle of a wonton wrapper. Moisten the sides with water. Gather the sides like tiny purses. 

If you prefer them fried, heat up some sesame oil. Once the oil is hot, deep fry your wontons for 6-7 minutes until crispy and golden brown. If you have a bamboo steamer and would like them steamed, steam them for 10 minutes. 

Combine the sauces, garlic and chillies. Garnish your wontons with coriander and sesame seed.

Enjoy with a loved one who is not allergic!
