Crab Salad in Won Ton Cups

25 Jan

I adapted this recipe from one by Ellie Krieger I found on

Time: 15 minutes         Serves: 6


  • Won Ton Cups

  • 12 won ton wrappers
  • 1 tbsp butter, melted
  • sea salt
  • cooking spray
  • Dressing

  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Crab Salad

  • 1/4 lb lump crab meat, cooked & picked over for shells
  • 1 rib celery, diced fine
  • 1/2 cup mango, diced
  • 1/2 cup scallions, sliced thin
  • 2 tbsp cilantro leaves (fresh), roughly chopped

How to make it

  • Won Ton Cups

  • Preheat oven to 375F. Spray muffin tin with cooking spray.
  • Brush won ton wrappers on both sides with melted butter. Gently press into tin – 2 to each cup. Arrange so that they form cup shapes. Sprinkle with salt and bake for 8-10 minutes, until browned and crisp. Remove and allow to cool.
  • Dressing

  • Whisk together zest, juice, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Add oil and whisk until well combined.
  • Crab Salad

  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Add dressing and toss to combine. Fill each cup with salad and serve.
