Moisten edges of wrapper with water. Fold in half, pinching edges together to seal and create a half-moon shape. Repeat procedure with remaining wonton wrappers and crab mixture.

Serve ravioli immediately with sauce.
Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Muscadet, Riesling
Shellfish on the menu? Try pairing with Chardonnay, Muscadet, and Riesling. Buttery chardonnay is great for scallops, shrimp, crab, and lobster, while muscadet is a classic pick for mussels, oysters, and clams. If you've got some spice in your shellfish, a semi-dry riesling can balance out the heat. The 7Cellars Elway's Reserve Chardonnay with a 4.9 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 28 dollars per bottle.
