      Directions

      Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray 2 mini-muffin tins with cooking spray.

      Brush the wonton wrappers with oil, and place each wrapper into a section of a mini-muffin tin. Gently press each wrapper into the tin and arrange so that it forms a cup shape. The wrapper will overlap itself and stick up out of the cup. Sprinkle with salt and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until browned and crisp. Remove from the tin and allow wrappers to cool.

      Meanwhile whisk together the zest, lime juice, salt, pepper, and pepper flakes. Add the oil and whisk until well combined.

      In a medium bowl, toss together the crabmeat, celery, mango, scallion and cilantro. Add dressing and toss to combine. Fill each cup with the crab salad and serve.

        We loved the wonton cups. We didn't have crab so we ended up making chicken salad to put in the cups. It would be great with tuna salad also.

        This is a "must have" appetizer. Since I was a week out for the crab season on the West Coast, I substituted with shrimp. I made the shrimp salad and wontons the night before. The shrimp will soak up all the goodness. Since I didn't want the wontons to get soggy prior to the party, I decided to assemble them when I got there. As I put one on the tray, it would get snatched up by someone. I just couldn't keep up with the demand. Everyone LOVED them and has been requested at another party. Try these! They are DE-LISH!!
