Crab Wontons with Brie

In this riff on crab Rangoon, we bake the stuffed wonton instead of frying to lighten things up. Preheating the pan and coating the bites with cooking spray ensures they still get crispy.

24 wontons


  • 4 ounces lump crabmeat, drained and picked over for shells

  • 4 ounces Brie cheese, diced

  • ¼ cup mayonnaise

  • 2 tablespoons minced jalapeño pepper

  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh chives, plus more for serving

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • teaspoon salt

  • 24 wonton wrappers

  • Cooking spray


  1. Place a rimmed baking sheet in the oven; preheat to 350 degrees F.

  2. Combine crabmeat, Brie, mayonnaise, jalapeño, chives, pepper and salt in a medium bowl. Scoop about 2 teaspoons of the crab mixture into the center of each wonton wrapper. Use your finger or a pastry brush to moisten the edges of the wrapper with water. Carefully lift two opposite points up until they touch. Gently pinch together to seal. Fold the remaining two points up toward the center just to close the opening. Pinch the edges together to seal into a four-pointed star.

  3. Carefully transfer the wontons to the hot baking sheet. Generously coat them with cooking spray. Bake until golden brown, 16 to 18 minutes.


To make ahead: Assemble wontons (Step 2) up to 8 hours ahead. Cover and refrigerate.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
