So fast and easy in the air fryer! Instead of Remoulade sauce I used Yum-Yum sauce. Read More

This had WAY too much breading. I doubled the recipe exactly. Even with 1/3 the amount of breading the recipe calls for it is likely too much. The flavor of the bread was fine but there was little to no crab flavor at all. At least I only wasted 8 oz of crab. If you try this recipe use 1/4 to 1/3 the amount of bread crumbs. Read More
