Ingredients For Crispy Coating Air Fryer Crab Cakes:

  • 1 pound of well-drained lump crab meat
  • 1/4 cup of mayonnaise
  • One big egg
  • One spoonful of mustard dijon
  • One spoonful of sauce from Worcestershire
  • 1 tsp Old Bay seasoning (modify according to flavour)
  • 1/4 tsp salt, or according to taste
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper, or according your taste
  • Half a cup of Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup of freshly chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon of optionally chopped chives
  • Cooking mist

Instructions For Crispy Coating Air Fryer Crab Cakes:

First, make the crab cake mixture:

  • Ingredients: Gently mix lump crab meat, mayonnaise, egg, Worcestershire sauce, Old Bay seasoning, salt, and black pepper in a large mixing dish. Use a spatula or your hands to gently combine the crab meat, taking care not to break it up too much.
  • Add the herbs and breadcrumbs: Once thoroughly mixed, fold in the Panko breadcrumbs, chopped parsley, and chopped chives, if using. Forming the mixture into patties should keep it together.

Second, Form the crab cakes and refrigerate:

  • Form into Patties: Divide the crab mixture into equal parts, then form each into a patty that is around one inch thick. Transfer the crab cakes to a parchment paper-lined plate or baking sheet.
  • Relax: Before cooking, place the crab cakes in the refrigerator for at least half an hour to solidify. This improves their ability to maintain their form when air-frying.

Third, Let the crab cakes air fry:

  • Preheat the Air Fryer: Give your air fryer a five-minute warmup period at 375°F (190°C).
  • Cook in Groups: Cooking spray should be used sparingly on the air fryer basket. Leaving room between each crab cake for air circulation, arrange the crab cakes in the basket in a single layer.
  • Air fry: Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Cook the crab cakes for 10 to 12 minutes, turning them halfway through, or until they are well roasted and have a crispy, golden outside.

Forth, Present:

  • Serve Hot: Before serving, take the crab cakes out of the air fryer and let them a few minutes to rest. Serve hot with your preferred dipping sauce, tartar sauce, or slices of lemon.

Advice and Adaptations:

  1. Crab flesh: For the finest flavour and texture, use premium lump crab flesh.
  2. Crushed gluten-free crackers or gluten-free breadcrumbs are good substitutes if you’d rather go gluten-free.
  3. Herbs: To change up the flavour, use other herbs like cilantro or dill.
  4. Make Ahead: The crab cakes may be made in advance and chilled until cooking time.
