In a medium bowl, whisk together the green onions, egg, mayonnaise, Dijon, and parsley.
To bowl with mayonnaise mixture, add the corn, crab meat, and bread crumbs, gently combining. Using ¼ cup measure, scoop and form mixture into 8 cakes, about 1-inch thick. Place in freezer for 10 min.
Preheat air fryer to 375°F. Coat bottom of basket with the cooking spray. To basket, add half of crab cakes in a single layer. Coat tops with spray. Close lid and cook 10 min., flipping once halfway through cooking time. Repeat with second batch. Serve immediately with lemon wedges and sauce.
