How to Cook Crab Rangoon in Air Fryer: First Way
To prepare the snack, you’ll need the following ingredients:
- 8 oz. of softened cream cheese
- 4 oz. of lump crab meat
- 2 tablespoons of chopped scallions
- 1 tablespoon of soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
- Nonstick cooking spray
- Wonton wrappers
- 2 tablespoons of Asian sweet chili sauce (this is optional).
One reason why people love this snack is how fast it is to prepare. It takes about 15 minutes to prepare the ingredients and 20 minutes to cook it. The first step is to mix the Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, scallions, crab meat, and cream cheese all together in a bowl. Stir the mixture properly.
Now, preheat your air fryer to about 350 degrees F. Apply the nonstick spray on the fryer baskets to prevent the wonton from sticking to them. You can now fill a small bowl with warm water. Spread 12 wonton wrappers on a flat surface. Drop a tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture at the center of each of the wonton wrappers.
Dip your forefinger in the warm water and use it to dampen the sides of all the wonton wrappers. Now, you should crimp wrapper corners upwards. Let the four corners of each of them meet at the top. Place all of them on the air fryer basket and spray the tops with cooking spray to prevent them from sticking to the baskets.
Finally, cook the wontons in your oven for about 10 minutes or until it is crispy enough for you. After that, you can bring it out onto a towel-lined plate. That’s all. Let the eating begin. As mentioned earlier, it will take you about 15 minutes to prepare its ingredients and about 20 minutes to cook it. So, together, it will take you 35 minutes to make the snack from the beginning.
