  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 6 oz canned crabmeat, drained and flaked (4.25oz drained)
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce (or additional soy sauce)
  • 24-36 wonton wrappers
  • 1-2 Tbsp melted butter or oil (optional, to brush on before cooking)


Air Fryer Crab Rangoon

  • Preheat air fryer to 350°F (180°C).
  • In a large bowl, combine cream cheese with flaked crab meat, green onions, garlic, soy sauce, and Worcestershire sauce.
  • Lay a wonton wrapper on a clean, flat surface. (Keep other wonton wrappers stored in their container or covered when not in use, to prevent drying out.)
  • Using a small cookie scoop or spoon, add 1-2 tsp of filling to center of wonton wrapper. Moisten edges of wrapper with water, using a brush or your finger.
  • To fold, bring opposite corners together in the middle of the wonton. Pinch closed along the top, near where the filling is. Repeat with other 2 corners to form a pointed ‘purse’ shape. Press along edges to seal.
  • Transfer prepared wontons to a plate or cutting board, then cover with plastic or a wet cloth.
  • Repeat until you have 7-9 wontons. (You can only cook so many in the air fryer at one time!)
  • Optional: Before cooking, brush outside of each prepared wonton with a bit of melted butter or oil for maximum crispiness!
  • Add 7-9 wontons to preheated air fryer and cook for 6-8 minutes, until crispy.
  • Repeat wonton prep process until all of filling mixture isused. (I was able to make 28 wontons.)
  • Serve warm with desired dipping sauce and enjoy!

To Make Crab Rangoon in Oven

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • Prepare wontons as described above. (For this method, you can prepare all wontons at once since they can all cook in the oven at the same time.)
  • Add wontons to a lined baking sheet and bake for 15-18 minutes, until golden brown and crisp.
