  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar substitute (such as erythritol)
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
For the Mozzarella Sticks:
  • 8 mozzarella cheese sticks
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups pork rinds, crushed (or almond flour for non-pork rind version)
  • Oil for frying
For Dipping Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar substitute (such as erythritol)
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • Optional: Red pepper flakes for heat
  • Instructions:
  • Prepare the Crab Rangoon Filling:
    • In a bowl, combine drained crab meat, softened cream cheese, chopped green onions, minced garlic, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, sugar substitute, salt, and black pepper. Mix until well combined. Set aside.
  • Assemble the Mozzarella Sticks:
    • Take a mozzarella cheese stick and coat it in almond flour, shaking off any excess. Dip it into the beaten eggs, then coat it with crushed pork rinds (or almond flour for a non-pork rind version). Repeat the process for a double coating if desired. Place the coated mozzarella sticks on a tray lined with parchment paper.
  • Fill the Mozzarella Sticks:
    • Using a piping bag or a spoon, carefully fill each coated mozzarella stick with the crab rangoon filling, ensuring the ends are sealed.
  • Freeze:
    • Place the filled mozzarella sticks in the freezer for at least 1-2 hours to firm up.
  • Fry the Mozzarella Sticks:
    • Heat oil in a deep fryer or a deep pan to 350°F (175°C). Carefully fry the frozen crab rangoon mozzarella sticks until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
  • Prepare Dipping Sauce:
    • In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, sugar substitute, minced ginger, and minced garlic. Add red pepper flakes if you desire some heat.
  • Serve:
    • Serve the Keto Crab Rangoon Mozzarella Sticks hot with the dipping sauce on the side.
