I had extra won ton wrappers left over from making Sichuan pork won tons, so I bought some krab (crab is very expensive out here). My attempt at making crab rangoon was a miserable failure. The won ton wrappers had dried out and developed a weird texture. I was left with half a bag of krab and half a stick of cream cheese. I came up with this sandwich.
It’s a hundred times better than crab rangoon.
It isn’t bland, and it isn’t deep-fried, but it will dissolve your craving for crab rangoon.
You can make small pieces of toast and serve this to guests as an alternative to mayonnaise-y crab dip, & it takes less than five minutes to make.
I’ll definitely make this again.
a tiny pat of butter
just a little sesame/canola blended oil
get pan fairly hot
add green curry paste and water
toast the bread you like for sandwiches
when curry is incorporated into a sauce (~2 min), add krab, green onion or dried chives, a little fresh ginger, 2 drops of fish sauce, and stir-fry medium heat for four minutes or until the smell changes slightly
smear bread with cream cheese and lay cilantro on it. add whatever greens you like on a sandwich. add crab mixture and eat while hot.
