Nothing compares to a crab cake that is juicy and savoury on the inside and gorgeously golden on the surface. And I can now create tasty crab cakes with less mess and worry thanks to the Air Fryer.

Ingredients For Easy Air Fryer Crab Cakes:

  1. 8 oz of lump crab
  2. 1/4 cup finely sliced red bell pepper
  3. Two chopped green onions
  4. Two teaspoons of mayonnaise
  5. Two teaspoons of bread crumbs
  6. One tablespoon of mustard dijon
  7. One tsp old bay seasoning
  8. Spray-on oil
  9. Lemon squeeze

Instructions For Easy Air Fryer Crab Cakes:

  • In a bowl, mix together lump crab, red bell pepper, green onion, bread crumbs, mayonnaise, dijon mustard, and old bay.
    Gently shape the mixture into four patties.
  • Put in the Air Fryer basket and give the tops a quick oil mist.
    For ten minutes, air fried at 370 degrees Fahrenheit. Before serving, open them and squeeze some lemon over the tops.

What I’ve discovered is that;

  • The best crab cakes actually taste like crab, haha. That is to say, you want to avoid using too many toppings or condiments to mask the flavour of the crab.
  • A great crab cake has less bread crumbs and more crab.
  • When preparing crab cakes, use lump or jumbo lump crab flesh. This should be available in the seafood department of your neighbourhood grocery store. Although mine cost $14 for eight ounces, it’s well worth the price.
  • This recipe does not require eggs. You want a moist crab cake, and since crab flesh is already moist, you won’t have to turn it to maintain that lovely golden crust when making it in the Air Fryer.

Notes: Remoulade sauce is a great accompaniment to these crab cakes.
