How Get Ready to Air Fry: Best easy air fryer recipes

First of all, you need to have the right kind of pan to fry in. The best one is a stainless steel pan. This can be used to cook both fish and chicken or even vegetables. You should also make sure that it is non-stick so that you do not end up having oil stains all over your stovetop. You can also use a non-stick baking sheet if you do not own a pan yet. (Best easy air fryer recipes)

Put your air fryer to work! This handy gadget can make pretty much everything, from appetizers to main dishes—and even desserts!

Secondly, you need to make sure that the food will be good enough to fry in it. It should be pre-cooked so that it will be easy for you to fry it in the pan without having any worries or second thoughts about how much oil you used on it.

You should also make sure that the food will be hot enough for you. You should not let the food sit at room temperature for too long because this can affect the quality of the fried food. It is also important to make sure that you will have enough oil in your pan. It is suggested that you use 2 tablespoons of oil per person, but it is up to you to decide how much oil you need to fry with.

Lastly, you should make sure that your food will be cooked properly when using air fryer. This can only be achieved if you are using a right kind of oil and a right kind of pan. The only way to know whether your food is going to be cooked properly or not is by tasting it once it has been cooked. You can also add different seasonings to your food to make sure that it will taste good.

Air-Fryer Garlic Rosemary Brussels Sprouts

Air-Fryer-Garlic-Rosemary-Brussels-Sprouts

Ingredients:

Brussels Sprouts – 1 lb (500 grams)

Garlic – 3 cloves

Rosemary – 3 sprigs, leaves and stems only. (Minced)

Oil – 2 tbsp. (You can use olive oil or vegetable oil.)

Method:

Wash the sprouts thoroughly in running water to remove any dirt and grit. Trim off the ends and cut the sprouts into halves or quarters. Set aside.

Peel and mince the garlic cloves. Chop the stems of rosemary leaves as well. Set aside for later use (I will be using them for a soup).

In a small saucepan, heat oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking (about 2 minutes). Add minced garlic and cook until aromatic, but do not brown it or burn it. Remove from heat immediately when done. Pour into a bowl to stop cooking it further or cool it down if necessary. Once cooled, add chopped stems of rosemary leaves and set aside.

Add the sprouts to the oil and fry until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with chopped rosemary leaves and serve immediately, with lemon wedges for squeezing over it.

Bon Appetit.

Air Fryer Fish and Fries:

Air-Fryer Fish and Fries, air fryer recipes; easy air fryer recipes;

The Air Fryer is a great tool to have in your kitchen. It is a simple appliance that can save you time as well as money. I use mine almost every day and I love it. The Air Fryer is an easy way to cook food without the excess oil and grease from frying. The air fryer makes it possible for you to have fully cooked fish that is tender, yet still light and flaky, with no oil or grease on the outside of the fish fillets! You can also freeze fish for future use which makes meal planning much easier.

Air frying also creates crispy browned edges on food that are not possible when using other cooking methods such as baking, grilling and broiling.

When cooking fish in the air fryer, I like to use a light coating of olive oil on the fish and then sprinkle it with seasonings such as salt and pepper. The fish will cook quickly and then be left to sit in its juices for a few minutes before serving so that the juices can soak back into the fish. This helps to keep your Air Fryer Fish moist while still giving it a crispy outside. It also gives you an opportunity to add a little extra flavor if you want.

When preparing this recipe, I like to use cod since it is mild tasting and easy to fry or bake. Cod is a great source of protein for those looking for their daily dose of protein! If you have never cooked with cod before, it can be a bit of a challenge to figure out how to cook it. It is also important to know that cod is not very fatty and can be dry if overcooked. I like to keep my fish in the air fryer for about 7 minutes and then take it out and let it sit for about 5 minutes before serving.

If you do not have an Air Fryer, you can use your oven or stovetop fryer at low heat with oil or butter to give the fish an extra crispy outer coating. I also like to add a little lemon juice, just a squeeze, to the oil while frying the fish. The lemon juice helps create caramelization on the outside of the fish which gives it that nice browned crispy texture.

To make this meal more interesting, I like to serve the fish with a side of steamed broccoli and mashed potatoes. This gives you a great balance of healthy foods that are rich in vitamins and nutrients. The Air Fryer Fish and Fries is a great meal to have in your arsenal for those busy weeknights when you need something fast to make but still nutritious.

Serves 4

Ingredients:

4 cod fillets (about 3 ounces each)

1 tablespoon olive oil, divided use

2 teaspoons lemon juice, divided use

Directions:

Preheat air fryer to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Place cod fillets in a single layer into the air fryer basket. Drizzle each fillet with 1 teaspoon of oil and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. Season both sides of the fillet with salt and pepper. Place the basket into your air fryer and cook for 7 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Remove from air fryer, transfer to a serving platter, drizzle remaining oil and lemon juice over the fish, and serve immediately.

Air-Fryer Mini Nutella Doughnut Holes:

Air-Fryer Mini Nutella Doughnut Holes, Easy air fryer recipes

Ingredients:

Mini Nutella Doughnut Holes: (makes 6)

1 cup self-raising flour, sifted

2 tablespoons of caster sugar

1/2 teaspoon of baking powder

1/4 teaspoon of salt – optional pinch to flavour the doughnuts. You will have to taste as you go along and add more as you see fit. I used 1/4 tsp in this recipe.

If you don’t want to use any, then just leave it out! You can use fresh or dried herbs instead of the salt if you like. I used dried lavender for this recipe. In fact, I would use fresh lavender in place of the salt if you wish. It’s a little bit more intense but it’s lovely.

5 tablespoons of butter, melted and cooled (I used salted butter as I like my doughnuts salty)

1/2 cup of milk, at room temperature. I used half-and-half. You can use whole milk or skimmed milk if you wish. I just happened to have some half-and-half on hand for this recipe!

1/4 cup of Nutella (use your favourite brand – I used the one from the supermarket shelf)

1/2 cup of icing sugar, sifted

Small handful of dried lavender (optional)

Method:

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Grease several baking trays with butter or cooking spray. I used silicone baking mats for this recipe – they were awesome! They were non-stick and easy to clean. You can use parchment paper if you want. If you want to keep the doughnuts healthy, then use silicone baking mats instead of greased trays (butter or cooking spray).

Mix the dry ingredients together in a medium bowl, making sure that there are no lumps in the flour. In a separate bowl, mix the melted butter with the milk until combined. Add the melted butter and milk to the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. Add the Nutella and mix well. It will be thick and sticky, but don’t worry – we need this! Spoon into a piping bag with a plain nozzle.

Pipe little balls of doughnut mixture onto the baking trays and leave about 1cm between each ball. You can make them in any shape you want or size you want – I just made regular sized balls for this recipe. You can pipe them in shapes if you want, but I don’t recommend it as they are harder to get out of the piping bag afterwards! Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown on top (they will look like little muffins when they come out of the oven).

You can also do this in a skillet. If you don’t have a piping bag, no worries! Just use a small glass or cup to pipe the doughnuts onto the baking trays. Leave them to cool on a wire rack before you eat them.

Recipe Notes:

I used salted butter for this recipe – if you prefer unsalted butter, then use unsalted butter instead of salted butter. If you are using whole milk or skimmed milk, then I recommend using unsalted butter as well (if you prefer unsalted butter, that is).

The doughnut mixture will be thick and sticky when cooked and will not spread much when baked – but don’t worry! You can easily spread these out with a fork or the back of a spoon after they have cooled. If you want to use dried lavender instead of dried rosemary, then you can substitute dried lavender for the dried rosemary.

Air-Fryer Ground Beef Wellington

Air-Fryer Ground Beef Wellington, Easy air fryer recipes

Ingredients:

1 pound ground beef (I used 93% lean)

1 egg

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

2 teaspoons garlic powder, divided use (I used a lot of it)

2 teaspoons onion powder, divided use (I used a lot of it)

3/4 teaspoon salt, divided use (I used about 1/4 cup)

3/4 teaspoon black pepper, divided use (I used about 1/2 teaspoon)

1/2 cup bread crumbs (I used panko)

1 tablespoon olive oil, divided use (I used about 1 tablespoon)

1 cup sliced mushrooms (I used mixed baby bella and shiitake)

How to:

Preheat your air fryer to 425°F. Set the air fryer basket into the air fryer. In a large bowl mix together the ground beef, egg, Worcestershire sauce, 2 teaspoons of garlic powder, 2 teaspoons of onion powder, salt and black pepper.

Mix until well combined. Add in bread crumbs and mix until well combined. Place beef mixture into the air fryer basket. Set the temperature to medium heat and cook for about 15 minutes or until it’s fully cooked. While the beef is cooking, add olive oil to a pan over medium heat and add in mushrooms.

Cook until mushrooms start to brown. Add in the cooked beef to a bowl and mix together with any juices that are leftover from cooking. Add in desired amount of salt and pepper to taste, I added about 1/4 teaspoon each of both salt and pepper.

When the air fryer is finished cooking, take out the meat from your air fryer basket and transfer it onto a plate or cutting board. Cover with foil for about 5 minutes before slicing it up into small pieces. Serve with your favorite sides and enjoy!

Tips:

If you don’t have any Worcestershire sauce, I would recommend adding a little bit of soy sauce to the beef mixture.

If you don’t have any garlic powder, I would recommend adding a little bit of onion powder to the beef mixture.

Once again, this recipe is amazing! I’ve shared it with my family and they all love it too. This recipe is great for a special occasion meal since the beef is so flavorful!

*Note: I used 2 tablespoons in the recipe, but you may use more or less depending on how much you like, but I would start with 1 tablespoon and then add more if needed.

Air Fryer Crispy Curry Drumsticks:

Ingredients:

2 pounds chicken drumsticks (thighs)

1 teaspoon salt, more to taste

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, more to taste

2 tablespoons vegetable oil or olive oil, divided in half (for the skin) or 2 tablespoons butter or margarine (for the skin)

or 2 tablespoons coconut oil, divided in half (for the skin) or 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (for the skin) or 2

tablespoons ghee* (for the skin) or 1 tablespoon unsalted butter plus 1 tablespoon ghee* (for the skin) or 1 tablespoon

vegetable oil plus 1 tablespoon unsalted butter* (or coconut oil)* for frying Directions: Preheat air fryer to 375°F.

In a medium bowl, add the chicken skin side down, sprinkle with salt and pepper and rub until evenly coated. In a small bowl, combine the oil (or butter or margarine or coconut oil) with 1/4 cup water for the skin or ghee* for the skin.

Now, flip over the chicken and coat with vegetable oil (or butter or margarine or coconut oil) generously, on all sides; spread it out evenly so that each piece is completely covered.

This is done to ensure even cooking throughout the dish and to prevent sticking of any ingredient to the fryer pan while you are cooking them.

Place in air fryer basket, coating both sides of each drumstick with oil (or butter or margarine or coconut oil).

Place basket in air fryer and cook at 375°F for 10 minutes. At this point, the skin should be crispy and golden brown. If not, continue cooking in 5 minute increments until the desired result is achieved.

Remove from air fryer and let rest for about 5 minutes. Serve hot with your favorite sides. Enjoy! Recipe Notes: *You can use either ghee* or butter for frying the chicken skin. *You can use either ghee* or butter for frying the chicken skin.
