Why we love it
If you love appetizers and finger foods, you will love these air fryer frozen potstickers. They are easy to make, healthier than the pan-fried versions, and above all, delicious. (If you have an Instant pot, I’ve also prepared a batch of steamed potstickers, if you want to compare.)
Making frozen potstickers at home is a great way to enjoy this appetizer without spending hours in the kitchen. As delicious as they are, traditional potstickers can be a lot of work to make.
It is much simpler to pick up a batch of frozen ones and stick them in the air fryer. Whether they are veggie potstickers or filled with meat or seafood, with this Air fryer frozen dumpling recipe, they should come out perfectly light and crispy to even win over the pickiest eaters.
What to serve with it?
These air fryer potstickers will go quite well as a starter, with another asian-inspired dish as the main, like Instant pot ramen or sesame oil chicken. You can serve it with a soy peanut sauce, or this creamy coconut peanut sauce.
How to store it?
These air fryer potstickers can easily be made in advance, and will keep quite well for at least a day or so. Let them cool and then place them in an airtight container in the fridge.
To warm them back up, you can place them back in the air fryer for 1-2 minutes at 390° (195°C).
