For the Dough

  • cups shredded mozzarella
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 tbs cream cheese
  • 1 egg beaten

For the Filling

  • 6 oz canned crab well drained
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 green onion finely chopped
  • ½ tsp soy sauce
  • tsp garlic powder
  • salt and black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 400F.
  • To make the dough, place the mozzarella and cream cheese in a medium size microwaveable bowl. Microwave for 1 minute, stir and then another cook for another 30 seconds. Stir in the beaten egg and almond flour. Let the dough cool slightly, then knead until smooth. Add a little extra almond flour if the dough is too sticky, then knead again.
  • While the dough is cooling, prepare the filling by combining softened cream cheese, drained canned crab, finely chopped green onion, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, salt and pepper.
  • Place the dough on a large silicone mat. Place a second silicone mat over the top, and use a rolling pin to flatten out the dough as much as possible. You might find it easier to do this in two batches.
  • Use a flat spatula or palette knife to cut the dough into squares about 3" wide. Lift each square up carefully, and add a teaspoon of the filling.
  • Pinch the opposite corners together, and then bring the remaining two corners to the center. Press the edges to seal.
  • Place them on a lined baking sheet and repeat with the rest of the dough and filling. This recipe makes about 20 crab rangoon parcels.
  • Roast for about 10 minutes or until the dough is cooked and golden brown. Serve warm.
