AIR FRYER CRAB BITES

These air fryer crab bites are made with lump crab meat and very little filling! They cook in under 10 minutes and are perfect for holiday parties or a busy weeknight!

If you love crab cakes, then you’re going to love these crab bites. The only difference is that these are smaller, cook a lot quicker, and are way easier to prepare.

CAN I BAKE THESE INSTEAD?
Yes, of course. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees f. and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the crab bites on the baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes. You can also fry them in a skillet with oil for 2-3 minutes on each side.

About Time 

  • Prep Time  20 mins
  • Cook Time 8  mins
  • Total Time  28 minsIngredients
    • 1 lb lump crab meat
    • ¼ cup mayo
    • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
    • 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
    • ¼ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    • ½ lemon juiced
    • ⅛ teaspoon lemon zest
    • ½ cup panko breadcrumbs
    • 1 egg
    • 1 teaspoon fresh parsley finely chopped
    • serve with remoulade sauce optionalInstructions
      1. Add all of the ingredients except for the crab and panko breadcrumbs to a large bowl and mix until well combined.
      2. Gently fold in the crab and breadcrumbs being careful not to break up the crab meat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.
      3. Spray the air fryer basket with nonstick spray and shape the crab bites into golf-sized balls. I like to use a mini ice cream scoop.
      4. Place the crab bites in the air fryer basket and cook for 8 minutes at 400 degrees F. Don’t overcrowd the air fryer, work in batches if you have to. Use a spatula to gently remove the cooked crab bites out of the air fryer.
      5. Serve with lemon wedges and enjoy!
