  • 1 Cup cabbage shredded
  • 12 Egg roll wrappers
  • 1 egg for egg wash
  • 1 Tablespoon water for egg wash

Crab cakes

  • 1 Pound lump crab meat
  • ½ Cup panko breadcrumbs
  • ¼ Cup mayonnaise
  • ½ Tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 Teaspoon black pepper coarse
  • 1 Teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ Cup green onions chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon sriracha
  • 1 Tablespoon mustard stone ground
  • 1 Teaspoon horseradish

Fire sauce

  • 1 ½ Cups sour cream
  • ½ Cup sweet chili sauce
  • ½ Tablespoon hot sauce
  • 2 Teaspoon Old Bay seasoning


  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F for 5 minutes
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine all ingredients for crab cakes. Mix well. Use a cookie scoop to scoop out crab cake mix and form into balls. Press between your palms to tightly form the crab cake balls.
  • Add crab cake to the air fryer and cook for 10 minutes.
  • While the crab cakes are cooking, prepare the fire sauce. Combine all ingredients in a small mixing bowl and whisk. Set aside ¾ of a cup to use as dip. Add shredded cabbage to the bowl and toss with remaining sauce.
  • Remove crab cakes from the air fryer. Cut each crab cake in half.
  • Prepare the egg rolls. Lay an egg roll wrapper flat on a solid work surface. Spread 2 tbsp of cabbage mix down the center of each egg roll wrapper in a diagonal line.
  • Add 3 crab cake halves on top of the cabbage cut side down.
  • Make the egg wash by whisking together the egg and water in a small bowl.
  • To fold the eggroll, position it in front of you like a diamond. Brush the egg wash along the edges. Think of the corner furthest from you as corner 1, the left corner is #2, right is #3, and the closest corner is #4. The filling inside of the egg roll should be going diagonally between #2 and #3. Take corner 1 and fold it over the filling. Next, fold corner 3 towards the center. Do the same with corner 2. Tightly roll the egg roll towards corner 4. Place finished egg rolls onto a parchment lined baking sheet as you work.
  • Brush each egg roll with egg wash on all sides.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F for 5 minutes
  • Lightly spray the air fryer basket with non-stick cooking spray. Place into the air fryer and cook for 8 to 10 minutes- about halfway through cooking time, turn the egg rolls over to evenly cook. Check that egg rolls have a golden brown colour before removing.
  • Serve with fire sauce.
