Most people associate crab rangoons with Chinese cuisine since the original recipe may have been a Burmese dish. However, it is believed crab rangoons were created in the US since cream cheese is not a staple part of Chinese cuisine. The first mention of crab rangoons was mentioned on Trader Vic's menu. A worker named Joe Young is credited with creating crab rangoons.
Nevertheless, we are thankful that Joe Young created these crispy creamy delights. Traditionally crab rangoons are deep-fried in oil. However, to make them healthier, they are air fried. For this Air Fryer Crab Rangoons, the filling consists of cream cheese, lump crab meat, green onions, chives, red bell pepper, garlic, soy sauce, salt, and black pepper. The filling is sealed in gluten-free wonton wrappers and fried until it is golden. The crab rangoons are served with a sweet and sour Chinese red sauce to create the perfect appetizer.
