Try this amazing Shrimp Rangoon recipe! Enjoy crispy wontons stuffed with juicy shrimp and smooth cheese! Perfect for gatherings or as a unique snack.



For The Filling:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ pound cooked shrimp, roughly chopped
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar


  • 1 (12 ounces) package Wonton wrappers
  • 1 large egg, plus one tablespoon of water whisked together
  • Cooking oil spray


  • Set aside the wonton wrappers, then mix all the other ingredients for the filling together in a medium-sized bowl.
  • Put 1 teaspoon of the mixture in the middle of each wonton wrapper.
  • Lightly dampen the edges of each wrapper with egg wash.  The egg wash helps to glue the edges together as you assemble the wontons.
  • Shape: Lift two opposite corners of the wrapper and pinch only the tips of those corners together. Then, lift the remaining two adjacent corners and seal them by pinching them firmly. Pay special attention to pinching the tip of the wonton to prevent any filling leakage while frying.

Air Fry

  • Lightly spray the basket of your air fryer with cooking oil.
  • Place the shrimp rangoon into the air fryer basket. Make sure not to overcrowd it. If necessary, cook them in batches.
  • Lightly spray them with oil.
  • Set the Air Fryer to 350°F and cook for 8-10 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy, flipping them halfway through the cooking time and spraying them again with cooking spray.
  • Serve them with your choice of dipping sauce.


  • If you don't have a deep fryer, you can use a Dutch oven. Fill it with 2-3 inches of vegetable oil and heat it until it's just below 350 degrees. On an electric stove, you'll want to set the heat a bit lower than medium-high to reach this temperature.
  • To check if the oil is hot enough for frying, use an extra wonton wrapper. Put it in the oil and watch to see that it cooks but doesn't burn too quickly. If it does, you might need to turn the heat down a bit. This is a simple way to test the oil temperature before you start frying your food.
  • Fry a small batch of wontons, about 4-5 at a time, for 45 seconds to a minute each, or until they turn a nice golden brown color.
  • After frying, take the wontons out and put them on a plate that's lined with paper towels.


  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Then, coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Place this prepared sheet in the oven for about 5 minutes to warm it up. This step helps make sure the bottom of the wontons become nicely crisp as they bake.
  • Take it out and arrange the wontons on it. Then, give the wontons a light spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Bake for about 10-12 minutes, but it's a good idea to start checking them after 5 minutes to make sure they don't overcook. Once they become crisp and have a golden brown color, take them out of the oven.


Storage & Reheating

  • Store the leftover shrimp rangoons in an airtight container. Keep them in the fridge, and they will stay fresh for up to 4 days.
  • To reheat, air fry them at 300°F for 5-7 minutes until they reach the desired warmth.  Alternatively, you can reheat them in your oven at 350°F for 6-7 minutes until they're warm.
