Air Fryer Crab Rangoon & Pineapple Dipping Sauce

By: Donna Chaffins | Date: March 5, 2018 | Categories: Recipes

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.

We can have crab rangoon anytime we want, and I know it’s much healthier than deep-fried crab rangoon. Plus, I do love not having to use oil, not just because of the extra calories and fat, but clean up is so much easier.

Whether as an appetizer, snack, or meal this air fryer crab rangoon recipe is a must try!

Air Fryer Crab Rangoon & Pineapple Dipping Sauce

Crab Rangoon

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  1. Preheat air fryer to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine cream cheese, mayo, and crabmeat in a bowl and mix with hand mixer until well incorporated.
  3. Add green onions and garlic and fold in to combine.
  4. Fill won ton wrappers with a spoonful of crab mixture and fold up to make 4 corners.
  5. Place in 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.
