Air Fryer Garlic Butter Lobster Tail

I love seafood! Recently I made a seafood feast with crab legs, lobster tails, mussels and clams and it was so delicious! I call it “working” on content but it’s a delicious way to work if you ask me! Anyway, I love lobster and I decided to try to switch up how I make it! These were cooked in the air fryer and I must say they came out phenomenal. So quick, so tender and so delicious.

The best way is to butterfly the lobster. I started doing this a while back to my tails and I love how they come out. It looks pretty professional, too but it’s so simple! Start by cutting the top of the shell, pull the shell open and using your fingers pull the meat out and lay on top of the shell. You still want the meat attached to the shell slightly to keep it in place.

This recipe has a very simple garlic butter. You can just use butter and lemon and keep very simple. Check out the recipe and cooking instructions below.

Air Fryer Garlic Butter Lobster Tails

Ingredients:
2 lobster tails, butterflied
1/2 stick salted butter, melted
1 garlic cloves, grated
1-2 tsp fresh lemon juice
2 tsp parsley
sprinkle salt
sprinkle pepper

Directions: Preheat the air fryer. (Mine preheats for 3 minutes at 400°) Add the lobster tails to an air fryer safe pan. Add the butter, garlic, parsley, lemon and salt & pepper to a bowl and mix well. Using a brush, brush the butter mixture over the lobster. Add into the air fryer and cook at 380° for 4 minutes. After 4 minutes, brush more butter onto the lobster and cook another 4-5 minutes until fully cooked. The tail is done when the meat turns a milky white and the shell is a bright red. Note: Cook time will vary depending on the size of the lobster tail. These lobster tails were only about 5 oz each, anything larger make take 10-12 minutes to fully cook. Avoid overcooking as the lobster will become chewy and rubbery if over cooked.

Air Fryer Oreos

I’m still loving my air fryer! It was probably one of the best items I’ve purchased recently. I love kitchen items, obviously! But this gadget is awesome! I decided to give Oreos a try in the air fryer. I personally don’t like the idea of the ones with crescent dough. I feel like it would be a little on the doughy side for me. I made mine with pancake mix and I loved the way they came out. Do they taste like a fried Oreo you get a carnival or state fair… probably not. BUT these are delicious nonetheless! If you are looking for a “fried” treat with no guilt this is it! Give them a try and let me know what you think!

Air Fryer Oreos

Ingredients:
1/2 cup complete pancake mix
1/3 cup water
10 Oreos (or other chocolate sandwich cookes)
cooking spray
powder sugar, to taste

Directions: Preheat air fryer. (Mine preheats at 400 for 4 minutes) In a small bowl mix together pancake mix and water until combined. If the mix seems to wet you can add more pancake mix. You want it to be thicker and not to runny. Spray the air fryer rack with cooking spray. Dip the cookie in the pancake mix and make sure it’s fully covered. Lay on the air fryer rack. Complete with all Oreos and make sure they are not touching. Place in the air fryer and cook at 400 for about 7-8 minutes flipping halfway through. Remove from air fryer and sprinkle with powder sugar. You can use parchment paper for a smoother bottom! I just put on the rack vs using the parchment paper.

Pasta Chips with Ricotta DIp (Viral Recipe)

I had to jump on this band wagon and give these pasta chips a try! I never in my life thought that making pasta into a chip would be a thing but here we are. 2021 making pasta chips in an air fryer! I gave it a try to share my thoughts. They came out delicious and cripsy. I made a whipped up ricotta dip to eat these chips with. These can easily be eaten with any favorite dip! Check it out!

Pasta Chips with Whipped Ricotta Dip

Ingredients:
12 oz uncooked pasta (any pasta will work but if you plan to dip try and use slightly bigger)
1-2 bsp olive oil
1/4 cup grated Romano cheese
1/2 tsp garlic salt
(Note: you can use any seasoning you like)

Whipped Ricotta

Ingredients:
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
2 tsp Italian Seasoning
2 tsp lemon juice, fresh
salt/pepper to taste
chopped chives, for garnish

Directions: In a medium bowl add in all ingredients for the ricotta dip (minus the chives) and mix well till fully combined. Place in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Cook the pasta in heavily salted water till al dente. Drain the pasta and transfer to a bowl or add back to the pot. Toss pasta with olive, seasoning and grated cheese. Preheat air fryer (note: I have an oven air fryer and mine preheats at 400° for 4 minutes) Add the pasta in a single layer to the rack and place in the air fryer at 400° for 10-13 minutes shaking halfway through. Cook in batches if needed. You are looking for a nice golden color with a perfect crunch. Remove from air fryer and serve with whipped ricotta dip or any dip of choice. (Note: You can also bake these in the oven at 400° for 20-25 minutes.

Note: Cook times may vary based on pasta size and type of air fryer. Keep an eye on the pasta towards the end of the cook time, my 2nd batch I forgot and burnt rather quick! Oops!! 🙂 Use any spices of your choice!

Air Fryer Sausage & Cheese Egg Muffins

Hi everyone! I’m so sorry for the delays with recipes. Life has been BUSY! The new job is keeping me busy. I have recipes to share, but just trying to take some time to disconnect after the work week and enjoy life. I’ll get to post them soon!

Anyways, We all know by now there isn’t much I won’t try in my air fryer. I have been trying some egg recipes. I really am not a fan of eggs or breakfast, so I try and keep it really easy for myself and prep some healthy breakfasts! I must admit, these egg muffins are delicious. You can use any flavor combinations you like! Sausage, bacon, ham, all different cheeses, or veggies!

Give these a try and let me know how you enjoyed them!!

Cheers!

https://www.amazon.com/shop/garlic_and_oliveoil_veins

Directions: In a large measuring cup (4 cups) crack in the eggs. Completely whisk the eggs. Then whisk in the water or milk well. Season eggs with salt and pepper and set aside. Preheat the air fryer. (My oven AF preheats at 400° for 4 minutes) Add silicone muffin cups to the air fryer rack. Add cheese to bottom of the muffin cups and top with some cooked breakfast sausage evenly over the cups. Gently pour in the egg mixture into each muffin cup.

Place in the air fryer 300° for 12-13 minutes. I place mine on the middle rack for first 6 minutes and move to top rack for the rest of the time. Place a tooth pick or knife in the middle to make sure the egg is completely cooked. Let cool slightly and enjoy.

Note: These little bits of goodness are fantastic for meal prepping. I’ve never actually enjoyed them fresh except when I took a bite to try it. Usually I make on Sunday and heat up quickly in the microwave during the week. They come out delicious!

London Broil Quesadilla

I love a recipe I can get 2 meals out of! I’m not a huge left over fan, unless it taste delicious. Well that’s where this recipe came in. I’m going to give you my Air Fryer London Broil recipe as well as how I made the quesadilla in the air fryer as well. Perfectly Quick meal for a busy week night! Better than take out!

London Broil Quesadilla

London Broil Ingredients:
1 London broil, 2 lbs

1 t onion powder
1 t steak seasoning
1/2 t salt
1/2 t pepper

London Broil Directions: Preheat air fryer at 400°. Rub the London broil with the oil and season with above seasonings on both sides. Add the London broil to the Air Fryer rack or basket. (Note: I have an air fryer oven with a rack.) Cook the mean at 400° for 13-15 minutes flipping half way. Check the temp with an instant read thermometer. 135° for medium rare and 145° for medium to well. Let the mean rest at least 5-7 minutes before slicing.

Quesadilla Ingredients:
2 medium- large flour tortillas
8-12oz shredded cheese (I used a reduced fat Colby Jack)
olive oil spray

Optional Additions:
onion, diced or sliced
fresh jalapeños
beans, black or refried
bell peppers
chopped cilantro
olives

Serving ingredients:
sour cream
hot sauce
salsa
guacamole

Quesadilla Directions: Thinly slice freshly cooked London broil or left over London broil. Assemble the quesadilla by placing cheese on half the tortilla. Top with the sliced meat and whatever else you are using. Top with more cheese. Fold over the tortilla. Complete with 2nd tortilla. Spray with cooking spray. Place in the air fryer at 400° for 8 minutes, flipping half way. You will need to place something on top of the quesadillas when you first start cooking the quesadilla. The tortilla may fly open before the cheese is melted. Once you flip it over it won’t be needed. I use an oven safe aluminum pan. Cook till your desired crispiness. Remove and serve with your favorite toppings!



Air Fryer London Broil

I love my air fryer. I’ve been experimenting with all different recipes. One I’ve done a few times already is London Broil. London Broil roast is like a big lean steak, that’s how I see it. It’s got very little fat. It’s usually about 12 inches long and 2 inches thick. When it’s cooked properly it can come out delicious. It’s a great lean protein. It’s perfect on it’s own, or used in a salad, quesadilla, tacos you name it!

The meat can get a little tough, so you want to try and cook it to a lower temperature and then watch it from there. Give this London Broil a try and you won’t regret it!
