Crab rangoon stuffed mushrooms are the perfect savoury or snack!
Crab Rangoon Stuffed Mushrooms–Great Savoury
Looking for a great savoury? Well, there goes my Britishness–savoury is just their word for appetizer. These crab rangoon stuffed mushrooms are also a great snack for tailgating or sports watching.
They’re pretty easy to make because you can start with canned crab if you wish. Crab has always been pricy in any form but fortunately the canned flaked stuff is pretty reasonable as crab goes. Any shellfish you like or have on hand can stand in for the crab and it will still be totally delicious.
Oh you betcha! I actually love this stuff better than the real thing. It’s got a wonderful slightly sweet flavor and I make a great seafood salad with it.
In fact, I used it here to make these stuffed mushrooms. I usually have a packet in the freezer so why not.
If you’ve never used it or bought it, it can either be found in the seafood area of the supermarket if it’s not been frozen, but many stores do sell it frozen so look where they keep the frozen seafood.
Another great thing about imitation crab meat is that it’s far cheaper than the real deal. Calling it “imitation” may conjure up some laboratory creation, but it’s actually white fish; usually cod so it’s a “real” product.
Great In The Air Fryer
These are a natural for the air fryer even though I mostly do these in the oven.
They’d require about 10 minutes at 400F/200C if you want to make them in your air fryer. The only thing I do with air frying them that I don’t do with the conventional oven is give them a spritz of oil to help them brown.

I don’t have an air fryer…. Can I make this in the oven? Thank you.

Absolutely! Give them about 20 minutes at the same temp.
imitation crab is not cod it is pollock and if you read what they do to it to make it taste like crab, you wouldn’t use it. buy the real thing.

You can use the real thing in this recipe so the imitation stuff is an option for those who can’t afford the real deal.
