Air fryers promise crisp fried food without actual deep frying. Was it too good to be believed? And what can you cook in them besides French fries? In truth, air fryers cook food by blasting it with circulated hot air. The method is fast, convenient, and can give surprisingly good results--if you have right recipe. We cooked more than 70 pounds of potatoes to create the perfect air fryer French fry, with an evenly crisp exterior and creamy center. But what really drew us to this appliance was the variety of what you can make in it, effortlessly and without having to enlist numerous pots and pans. In Air Fryer Perfection, we share simple tricks to achieve optimal flavor and texture in a range of foods. In addition to crispy chicken, fish, and onion rings, you'll turn out evenly cooked steaks, such Chipotle-Coffee Rubbed Steaks with Snap Pea Salad (the spice rub gives them a bold crust), Green Chile Cheeseburgers (a panade keeps them wonderfully juicy), and Tandoori Chicken Thighs. Bake moist, tender fish such as Salmon Fillets with Dill-Yogurt Sauce, and flavorful vegetables such as Spice-Roasted Carrots, Zucchini Fries, and Sweet Potato Wedges. Frozen foods cook up crisp in the air fryer, but the results are so much better when you start with homemade. So we offer freeze-it-yourself recipes for Chicken Nuggets, Beef Hand Pies, and more that go straight from freezer to air fryer and cook to perfection. Many of the recipes yield both a main and a side for a complete meal, such as Memphis-Style Pork Tenderloin with Three-Bean Salad and Korean BBQ Steak Tips with Napa Cabbage Slaw. Better still, most recipes take only 45 minutes or even less time, and all come with complete nutrition information.… (more)
