  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


  • 1/4 lb. shredded cabbage
  • 1/3 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 lb. ground pork

  3. Fill a small pinch bowl with water and set beside your work space.
  4. lay out a wonton wrapper and place 1/2 tablespoon of the filling in the center of the wrapper. Use your finger and dip in the water. Run your wet finger along the top half edge of the wrapper. Pinch into a half moon shape. Repeat with the remaining wrappers.
  5. Preheat the air fryer to 360°F. Spray the basket with cooking oil and place 12 wrapped wontons inside. Spray the tops of the wontons with cooking oil.
  6. Cook for 6 minutes, flip, then cook for another 4 minutes. Repeat with remaining wontons.
