Air Fryer, The Easiest Crab Rangoons You Will Ever Make!
Being from Boston, my uncles were all fisherman. Therefore, I was treated to a LOT of seafood, over the years. There was absolutely nothing better than my uncles dropping off the days’ catch to my mom, who would almost make something amazing. I remember my uncle’s dropping off baby lobsters because no one would buy them, now we all know them as chicken lobsters, and if they were free, there would be a line around the block, to get them.
My husband grew up as a good old midwestern boy, but he vacationed every year at Cape Cod, where he ate his share of great seafood.
When I moved to Ohio after we got married, I noticed that the seafood was different, they didn’t have lobsters, they had crab legs, and I literally remember going through the supermarket and saying, what are those? They just looked like something that came from outer space. Instead of cod, they ate salmon. I have never had salmon, so it was an acquired taste, my mother in law made the best salmon that I have ever had. I will probably be making it in the next couple of weeks, as we finish up Lent. She served it with a creamy dill dip, that even my son would eat (granted he would eat it without the salmon, but he would finish his bowl, LOL).
Seafood is important, it’s a great source of protein without a lot of fat. It hits most of the marks, gluten-free, low carb, and other diets.
Pans, I had a hard time finding pans that fit, but then one day, I ran around this amazing, which even includes a muffin tin, talk about a score!
I love a good crab cake sandwich, as do my kids, so today, I thought why not make crab cake sliders? They are really easy to make, and only require a few ingredients that you don’t have in your house.

How to make Crab Rangoon in the Air Fryer. These are so, so simple. You will not believe that you haven't already made them. With just a few ingredients, you will have an auethic Chinese appetizer in minutes.
- 8 ounces room temperature cream cheese
- 8 ounces lump crab meat
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 package Wonton on egg roll wrappers
- 1/4 cup water
Start by making your crab filling. Simply blend together the cream cheese and crab meat in a small mixing bowl.
Put a tablespoon of filling in the middle of the wonton wrapper.
I couldn't find wonton wrappers, so I used egg roll wrappers and cut them into 4 pieces.
Then fold up: I brush water around all of the sides, and then pinch the two sides together and then the other two sides to make a pocket.
Set in the air fryer tray or basket, rub the outside with the olive oil (outside only) and set the temperature for 300 degrees F, for 7 minutes.
Plate, serve and enjoy!
