Prep Time Cook Time Total Time
15 minutes 15 minutes 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 or 6 oz cream cheese, softened If you prefer creamy crab rangoon use 6 oz
  • 4 or 6 oz lump crab meat If you prefer your crab rangoon to have more cream cheese and less crab, use 4 oz. Seafood lovers may want to go for 6 oz
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 21 wonton wrappers
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • cooking oil I use olive oil.

Instructions

  • You can soften your cream cheese by heating it in the microwave for 20 seconds.
  • Combine the cream cheese, green onions, crab meat, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, and garlic in a small bowl. Stir to mix well.
  • Lay out the wonton wrappers on a working surface. I used a large, bamboo cutting board. Moisten each of the wrappers with water. I use a cooking brush and brush it along all of the edges. 
  • Load about a teaspoon and a half of filling onto each wrapper. Be careful not to overfill.
  • Fold each wrapper diagonally across to form a triangle. From there bring up the two opposite corners toward each other. Don’t close the wrapper yet. Bring up the other two opposite sides, pushing out any air. Squeeze each of the edges together. Be sure to check out the recipe video above for illustration.
  • Spritz the air fryer basket with cooking oil.
  • Load the crab rangoon into the air fryer basket. Do not stack or overfill. Cook in batches if needed.
  • Spritz with oil.
  • Place the Air Fryer at 370 degrees. Cook for 10 minutes.
  • Open and flip the crab rangoon. Cook for an additional 2-5 minutes until they have reached your desired level of golden brown and crisp.
  • Remove the crab rangoon from the air fryer and serve with your desired dipping sauce.

Notes

  • The cooking time can vary depending on the brand of your Air Fryer. To achieve crispy crab rangoon, I suggest setting the temperature to at least 370 degrees. Cook them until they reach your desired level of crunchiness. Keep an eye on them during the air frying process to prevent overcooking.
  • When I made this recipe, I found it best to cook the crab rangoon in two batches rather than stacking them all at once. If you stack them, some may become soft and break apart when flipped.
  • Not all wonton wrappers are the same. You might need to experiment with different brands to find your favorite. Some wrappers are prone to ripping and tearing, so you may need to double wrap them if necessary. Keep this in mind when preparing the recipe.
