Appetizers or Dim Sum are adelightful addition or meal within themselves. Today’s challenge is to take the cream cheese softening on the countertop and make a proper crab Rangoon. The challenge is compounded by the fact that many disagree upon what is and isn’t proper. Ultimately, I wont make anything “Authentic” as I’m not of the place that is an authority upon what I aim to make – this is something known as racism that authenticity exists . Haha on the last sentence! as I will eat good if I try to and execute good. damnation upon the last sentence as it speaks not of excellence but less than this and thus fails from word one. Moving along.
Recipes are to be researched. I heard that there is a lil dash of yellow something within a “proper” crab rangoon. This source surmised that it was mustard. It is most difficult to research what I here 20 years later, not that I do not try, but much changes in styles from long ago as long ago actually fails to sell often enough after awhile. More than likely, the oppinion given is not that of expertise but personal taste4s and a local one-off…. crap! But, never you fear, recipes exist here coming to show you what is whispered:
like anyone, if I want the best, often a good place to look is with what is thee most popular, but, beware, expertise isn’t thee most popular so it shouldn’t surprise you that I would pick not rank one but within a top five ish area someplace I recognize as careful about testing or “vetting” there information. food.com is thus my first base recipe of what’s listed as a benchmark.
note that cream cheese with worcestershire sauce will indeed have a yellowish cast if used in small amounts.
not everything is Chinese… I have had the world best fun staying asian with Asian foods getting a different take on it all via …Malaysia (woot for Malaysia)
note that I know enough to know that sugar makes for sweet and there is not enough here to “candy” but bring forth a taste note of sweet seafood.
this is a hot mess to read – laugh as I heard you say Pot/Kettle BLACK! but, that yellow is potentially curry powder as well.
so, as i let my cream cheese go from what it is to what it can be, see also my can of crab meat and waffle whether to mustard or curry or worchestershire…. know that I have my shot coming for ..something I have never done before.. Dim Summed this way. shhhh! It’s authentic! 😉
