I did the coconut shrimp air fry recipe. Pat shrimp, dredge in corn starch, dip in egg white batter and then sweetened coconut flakes. Put them in air fryer for 15 minutes on 330 and flip around and toss at halfway. Very good. Lots less fat and plenty of flavor.


You gotta sear that fat. It was my plan. I need one of these torches...



Air fryer will be here soon.

And, otherwise, some people prefer to have a little bit more "doneness".

So did my first cook on the air fryer. We did fresh cut french fries for the maiden voyage. I used like a few drops of canola/olive oil mix. The fries came out wonderful. I only had 3 giant potatoes and the family ripped right through them. It was a hit. It reminded me of potatoes done in our convection oven but also fried. It tasted better than frying though and better than in the convection oven. It really exceeded my expectations. Avoided air fryers for a while because I thought they were a gimmick. Can't wait to try some more things. The coconut shrimp sounds great.

Made southern fried chicken with this thing. Came out great. Batting 2 for 2 with it and it is paying off. Family is loving the fried food without all the oil and 80% less clean up.

It was good. When I do it again I will let the oil soak into the batter longer and flip the chicken at mid time. This recipe calls for spraying the batter with oil before putting it in but never mentioned flipping it. But since it is not sitting in oil gravity finds is way and pulls it from the top. So the top comes out more like a cookie crunch and the bottom like traditional fried chicken. I think flipping it will work out well. Although my wife liked it not being oily like fried chicken from the store or made in the deep fryer. Only caveat was 20 minutes to do 5 pieces. I battered like 18 pieces lol.

Next up is the coconut shrimp and bang bang shrimp and then empanadas for taco Tuesday next week. Emeril has a nice empanada recipe in the book that came with this fryer. Gonna give it a go.

I got mine at Costco for $70. The fried chicken looks great. With the kids home for school, I am able to put bagel bites in for 7 minutes at 400 and they are perfect for the lazy lunch. It takes 15 minutes for the oven to get to 400. It's very good as a reheater. I also did thin slice potato chips. That took about 20 minutes but they were crunchy and good.

Guess the deals I posted, one from BJs and one from Newegg are pretty good then. Oh, yeah, clean up is hardlr anything at all. Super nice. Fried chicken was a few wipes with paper towels lol.

Well I broke down and got the sous vide because a wifi one and container was on sale. I'll be trying that tonight on some cheap steaks from aldi. I'm going to see if I can make magic happen with it. I'll have to take them out back to sear them on the grill. I'm gonna need a torch lol

Anyway, I think these two purchases got me up to date with modern cooking.

I only made some creme brulee in it so far. Honestly, my favorite is a side of salmon on the smoker at 275 until internal temp is 137 and let it rest til it cooks itself to 140 and let it rest some more until it cools down a bit. Holy mackeral! Incredible. The side of salmon at aldi is like 13-15 bucks. Feeds the whole family and then some...

Orange Maple Glazed Smoke Salmon on German Rye with Creme Fraiche, red onions, pickled eggs and chives.

That would make a moist flavorful salmon. Last night I air fried chicken breasts. For my batter I used crushed takis, the spicy crunchy snack. I soaked the breasts in brine for 20 minutes and they came out crunchy and moist.

The teenagers that lay around and share my last name are full of ideas for how I can cook for them. They love the takis.

Lol No, the premade ones (Goya discos) are awesome. Don't think I'll make my own after using these, no need to unless you want the Venezuelan style dough, a bit more airy less like these. These are our go to for taco Tuesdays now. We use left over meat from BBQ on weekend and chop it up refry it with onions taco seasoning and cilantro. Really easy. You can do just as good in your oven. Just need to flip them once probably.

I got one because of this thread and the sale I came across. Very impressed so far. Salmon was great, frozen Pierogis from frozen in like 10 minutes, planning to try some home made empanadas.
