Air Fryer Crab Wontons with Scallions on Top

Get your air fryer ready, because we’ve got another “fried” recipe that is just as delicious as it is simple to make. With assistance from your handy, dandy air fryer, these Crab & Cream Cheese Wontons can be whipped up with six simple ingredients and in five simple steps.

The creamy combination of lump crab meat, cream cheese and green onions create a rich and delectable base for this delicious recipe. Mix all ingredients (except wontons) in a large bowl and season with Old Bay and black pepper. Love Old Bay seasoning? Add a little extra to kick up the flavor. After laying out the wonton wrappers and dampening with water, load each wrapper with an equal spoonful of the creamy, crab filling. Pinch opposite corners together of each wonton wrapper and “fry” for about eight minutes. Be sure to grease your air fryer so the wontons don’t stick!
