How To Make Air Fryer Crab Rangoon

Match a Chinese takeaway dish with this crab rangoon recipe. It’s a crisp air-fried wonton packed with cream cheese and crabmeat.

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 25 minutes
Total: 40 minutes



  • 30square wonton wrappers
  • 8ozcream cheese,at room temperature
  • 4ozlump crab meat,or imitation crab
  • 2tbspscallions,minced
  • 2tbspsoy sauce
  • nonstick spray,for air fryer

For Dipping Sauce:

  • ¼cupsoy sauce
  • 1tbspsesame oil
  • 1tbsprice wine vinegar
  • sesame seeds,for garnish
  • red pepper flakes,for garnish


  1. In a small bowl, stir together cream cheese, crab, scallion, and soy sauce. Mix well so the filling is a single consistency and the crab is evenly distributed.

  2. Working with one square wrapper at a time, add a ½ tablespoon of filling to the direct center of the wonton.

  3. Use a finger to paint the edges of the wonton with warm water and then, crimp the corners up to meet in the center, forming a dumpling. Use fingers to press out as much air as possible along the edges while sealing the dumpling.

  4. Make 6 to 7 dumplings at a time, and then make the rest while those are frying. Or make them all in advance and keep them in the fridge for up to a day.

  5. Spray the air fryer basket with nonstick spray. Place about 7 to 8 wontons, without touching, into the air fryer basket.

  6. Air fry the wontons at 350 degrees F for 6 minutes until they are crispy and golden brown.

  7. Let the wontons cool briefly, then serve with the dipping sauce. Cooked wontons don’t keep very well (they get soggy), so cook and eat right away!
