Betty's Bigger Better Crab Bahms

Betty's Bigger Better Crab Bahms

Recipe by Desiree “BlackstoneBetty” Dukes



  • 2 lbs jumbo lump crab meat
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1-1.5 sticks of salted butter
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise, Dukes preferred
  • 1.5 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 tbsp old bay seasoning


  • Flat leaf parsley for garnish
  • Cocktail and or tartar sauce



  1. Mix old bay seasoning with mayonnaise. Carefully add the crab meat and panko without breaking up the meat.
  2. Using your hands, carefully form 8 individual dinner size crab bahms (or mini appetizer sized balls) place in refrigerator on a baking tray for 20 minutes.
  3. Turn Blackstone's airfryer between medium and high heat to preheat. Line the Airfryers with parchment paper.
  4. Melt the butter and the vinegar together, carefully place crab bahms onto the lined trays in the airfryer and pour a spoonful of melted butter/vinegar mixture over the crab bahms right before cooking.
  5. Cook for 10 minutes, checking halfway through. Turn heat up to high and let cook about 5 more minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Remove airfryer drawers and allow to cool a few minutes before carefully removing crab bahms from trays.
  7. Garnish with parsley, lemon and a sprinkle of old bay. Serve with tarter sauce and cocktail sauce. Enjoy!


**You can always add more panko or mayo so start with less and adjust.

**Time will vary based on size and temp but crab bahms do not contain any raw meat or eggs so simply cook until golden brown and heated through.
