Scoop out ⅓ cup of crab cake mixture. Form into a round disc about 1-inch tall. Repeat with remaining mixture until you have 8 crab cakes.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Bake in a preheated 375°F oven for 12-14 minutes, flipping halfway through.
Heat your air fryer to 375°F for 3 minutes.
Cook for 5 minutes, flip them over, and then continue cooking for an additional 5-7 minutes.
Serve crab cakes with a sprinkle of fresh parsley or chives, lemon wedges, and some homemade remoulade sauce or tartar sauce. Enjoy!
