One of the best kitchen appliance inventions in recent times to me is the air fryer. Bar none. I ditched my deep fryer years ago because of not only the mess involved in using it but deep fried food, although, delicious, just isn’t healthy. I love crab rangoon, and this Air Fryer Crab Rangoon fits the bill.

Air Fryer Crab Rangoon & Pineapple Dipping Sauce
- 4 oz. cream cheese softened
- 4 oz. imitation crabmeat, shredded
- 1/4 cup light mayo reduced fat
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 15 won ton wrappers
- Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees.
- Combine cream cheese, mayo, and crabmeat in a bowl and mix with a hand mixer until well incorporated.
- Add green onions and garlic and fold in to combine.
- Fill won ton wrappers with a spoonful of the crab mixture and fold up to make 4 corners.
- Place in the air fryer and air fry for 2 minutes and 45 seconds.
Note: The trick to folding crab rangoon is to have a gentle fold across each corner. You want to avoid pinching the wrapper but instead have a loose fold. Start the filling in the center, and gently push up on the sides about a third of the way into the wrapper. You will find that the wrapper will fold on the corners this way, and once it starts folding gently tuck in the sides, leaving the edges in a wide loop.
Pineapple Dipping Sauce
- ½ cup diced canned pineapple, drained
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- ½ red pepper, chopped
- dash (or two) of hot sauce (I use Frank’s hot sauce)
- 1 cup white vinegar
- ¾ cup sugar
- ¼ cup water
- Place pineapple garlic, and red pepper in a food processor until almost pureed.
- In a saucepan add white vinegar, sugar, water, and pineapple mixture and bring to a boil.
- Set on simmer until thickened and clear but red color in tone.
- Add hot sauce.
