Air Fryer Coconut Shrimp

Rating: 4.51 stars
Coconut shrimp come out great in the air fryer, and are served with a simple spicy honey-lime dip.

Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts

Rating: 4.59 stars
Sweet and tart balsamic vinegar pairs well with the bitterness of Brussels sprouts; the bacon adds a smokey flavor. After 10 minutes, there's still some bite to the sprouts; add a few more minutes for a softer texture, if desired.

Air Fryer Mustard-Crusted Pork Tenderloin with Potatoes and Green Beans

Rating: 4.8 stars
Perfectly cooked mustard-crusted pork tenderloin with potatoes and green beans in an air fryer for four.

Air Fryer Bacon-Wrapped Scallops with Sriracha Mayo

Rating: 4.75 stars
This delicious appetizer is prepared quickly and easily in the air fryer and served with a spicy Sriracha mayo dipping sauce. I use the smaller bay scallops for this. If you are using jumbo scallops it will require a longer cooking time and longer strips of bacon.

Air Fryer Chicken Thighs

Rating: 4.73 stars
Tasty, quick, chicken thighs, with juicy meat and a crispy skin; you will love this chicken that is ready for the table in less than 30 minutes!

Air Fryer Ranch Pork Chops

Rating: 4.53 stars
What could be simpler than ranch seasoning mix and 10 minutes in the air fryer? I prefer my chops slightly pink to ensure juiciness, but feel free to add an extra minute on each side for well done. Try different varieties of ranch mix (like spicy or bacon) to change up the flavor.

Air Fryer Brown Sugar and Pecan Roasted Apples

Rating: 4.63 stars
A sweet and nutty topping made with brown sugar and pecans adds incredible flavor to apples as they cook to tender perfection in the air fryer. Serve roasted apples over ice cream or yogurt, if desired.

Air Fryer Potstickers

Rating: 5 stars
Air-fried potstickers, crispy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside. Serve with the dipping sauce of your choice.

Air Fryer Coconut Shrimp

Rating: 4.51 stars
