This was my first meal I tried in my new Chefman air fryer, I was a little nervous and apprehensive but oh my gosh it came out perfect. I should have taken a picture. I live in Fl so grouper is our fish favorite and trying to stay away from the fry daddy so very excited. My fryer was also not large enough for a lb of fish so I did half, the other half then stacked all for just long enough to warm. A definite do it again recipe !


  • 4 catfish fillets
  • 1/4 cup seasoned fish fry I used Louisiana
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley optional


  1. Preheat Air Fryer to 400 degrees.
  2. Rinse the catfish and pat dry.
  3. Pour the fish fry seasoning in a large Ziploc bag.
  4. Add the catfish to the bag, one at a time. Seal the bag and shake. Ensure the entire filet is coated with seasoning.
  5. Spray olive oil on the top of each filet.
  6. Place the filet in the Air Fryer basket.  (Due to the size of my fillets, I cooked each one at a time). Close and cook for 10 minutes.
  7. Flip the fish. Cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  8. Flip the fish.
  9. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes or until desired crispness.
  10. Top with parsley.


Use your judgment on if you will need more or less fish fry seasoning noted in the ingredients above. The amount you will need will vary based on the size of your fillets. Each fillet should be fully coated with seasoning, but not overly coated.

Cooking time will likely vary based on the Air Fryer brand you use and how crunchy you prefer your fish. At 10 minutes I flipped the fish. I then allowed them to cook for 10 more minutes, flipped them one last time, and cooked for 2 minutes.


Easy Recipes Beef Burrito Skillet

This casserole is easy and delicious! I think that next time I make it I will leave out the salsa and taco seasoning and use a can of enchilada sauce. We used corn tortillas as we have people with celiac in our home. Two thumbs up from the whole family!


  • 1 lb ground beef (at least 80% lean)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup Old El Paso™ Thick ‘n Chunky salsa
  • 1 can (15 oz) Progresso™ black beans, drained, rinsed
  • 1 package (1 oz) Old El Paso™ original taco seasoning mix
  • 4 (6-inch) Old El Paso™ flour tortillas for soft tacos and fajitas, cut in 1-inch strips
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend (4 oz)
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 1/2 cup sour cream


  1. In 12-inch skillet, cook beef over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink; drain. Add water, salsa, beans and taco seasoning mix. Cook 3 to 5 minutes or until sauce thickens. Reduce heat to low.
  2. Stir in tortilla strips; cook 1 minute. Top with cheese; cover, and remove skillet from heat. Let stand 3 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  3. Top with green onions. Serve with sour cream.

I made this and share it with a couple of cousins. We all liked it. The flavors go together well, it’s not too spicy–but could be made to be. It’s quick and easy to prepare, and is on the table in less than 30 minutes. A plus! This recipe will be made again, for sure.


Food Recipes Perfect Air Fryer Salmon

Tried this recipe tonight for the first time and it was awesome! So quick and also moist and delicious! Didn’t want to heat up the house by turning on the oven and now I’ll always make salmon in the air fryer to save time and enjoy the benefits!

  • 2 wild caught salmon fillets with comparable thickness, mine were 1-1/12-inches thick
  • 2 tsps teaspoons avocado oil or olive oil
  • 2 tsps paprika
  • generously seasoned with salt and coarse black pepper
  • lemon wedges
  1. Remove any bones from your salmon if necessary and let fish sit on the counter for an hour. Rub each fillet with olive oil and season with paprika, salt and pepper.

  2. Place fillets in the basket of the air fryer. Set air fryer at 390 degrees for 7 minutes for 1-1/2-inch fillets.

  3. When timer goes off, open basket and check fillets with a fork to make sure they are done to your desired doneness.

Recipe Notes

Notes: One of the beauties of the air fryer is that it’s so easy to pop something back in for a minute if you want it cooked longer. You can also open it while it’s cooking to make sure it’s not overdone. I always set my timer for a little less so I can check on how things are coming along so I don’t overcook an item. Things cook so fast sometimes a minute more is all it needs.


Times for cooking will vary for salmon based on the temperature of the fish and the size of your fillets. Always set your air fryer for a little less time than you think until you become more used to the timing of your appliance.


Food Recipes Shrimp Fried Cauliflower Rice Bowl

I made this tonight and was totally amazed at how great it tasted!!! I substituted coconut oil for the vegetable oil and did 1 tablespoon of soy sauce. I gobbled it up without having even realizing! My husband was skeptical of the cauliflower Rice and he too was very impressed! This is now a go to low carb, high protien bowl of yumminess!!!


    • 8 ounces shrimpsmall uncooked, shelled and deveined (26/30 count shrimp)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher saltplus more to season the rice
  • 1/4 teaspoon Pepperfreshly ground, plus more to season the rice
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oildivided
  • 3 eggsbeaten
  • 2 cloves garlicminced
  • 3/4 cup carrotsdiced in ¼-inch cubes
  • 3/4 cup peasfresh or frozen
  • 1 head cauliflowershredded into very small pieces (about 4 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame oilLa Tourangelle
  • 2 stalks green onionthinly sliced


    1. Using the largest holes on a cheese grater, grate each cauliflower floret into small pieces, similar to the size of a grain of rice or to the size of a pea. Set aside.
    2. In a medium sized bowl, season shrimp with ½ teaspoon of salt and ¼ teaspoon black pepper.
    3. Heat a wok or large skillet over high heat. The pan is hot enough when a bead of water instantly sizzles and evaporates. Once this happens, add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to the pan, swirl to coat.
    4. Add the shrimp to the pan in one even layer. Allow the shrimp to cook for 30 seconds, and then flip over and cook for another 30 seconds. The shrimp should be pink and cooked through, being careful not to overcook. Transfer shrimp to a large plate and set aside.
    5. Reduce the heat to medium, and pour in the beaten eggs. Use a quick stirring motion to cook and break the eggs into small scrambled pieces. Once the eggs are almost fully cooked, transfer to the plate with the shrimp.
    6. Carefully wipe the pan clean. Increase the heat to medium-high and add one tablespoon of oil.
    7. Once the oil is hot, add the minced garlic and stir-fry for 30 seconds, until fragrant but not browned.
    8. Add the carrots and cook for 2 minutes, until tender. Add the peas and cook for 1 minute.
    9. Add the cauliflower, stir to combine. Spread the cauliflower mixture out evenly in the pan so that it has more area to fry, allow to cook without stirring for about 2 minutes.
    10. Mix the rice and lower heat to medium and cover the pan and cook until the cauliflower rice is tender, about 5 to 7 minutes.
    11. Add the soy sauce and sesame oil, stirring to combine. Taste the rice and add more soy sauce, salt and pepper as needed.
    12. Add the eggs and shrimp, stir, and cook for a few more minutes. Garnish with sliced green onions.



This came out awesome. My husband and toddler loved it. I give it 4 states because I changed the honey to apricot preserves. So this recipe definitely is going to TASTE different than how I made it. Great base recipe. Thank you Layla.

I had to quadruple the sauce recipe after I put half of the stated RECIPE toward the marinading. It wasn’t enough. So added the other HALF equaling the whole amount of the started recipes sauce. I used 3x the sauce recipe for the cooking.

I missed in two cups of brown rice and this dish make it dinner last night. Great save for dinner. Very quick cook time.

*I let my shrimps marinade for 30 minutes.
*I substituted the honey for apricot preserves.
*Made 4x the sauce recipe total -1x for the marinade and 3x for the cooking


  • 1 lb. shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 cup broccoli florets frozen or fresh
  • 1 tablespoon oil

For the Sauce

  • 1 teaspoon garlic minced
  • ½ teaspoon ginger minced
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce


  1. Place broccoli florets in a small bowl, fill with a few teaspoons of water and steam in microwave for 2 minutes. Combine the sauce ingredients and divide it into half. Marinate the shrimp with one half of the sauce for 5-10 minutes (or up to 24 hours). Discard marinade.
  2. Heat a heavy duty skillet to high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil to pan then add shrimp. Sear them on both sides in batches of 2 until browned, about 1 minute per side. Add the shrimp back to the pan along with the broccoli, drizzle with remaining sauce, and mix well to combine.



This was perfect. I made it with a side of brown rice (cooked in chicken broth). I halved the recipe. The only thing I did differently was instead of the olive oil, I used 1/4 chicken broth.  (watching my calories). Marinated for 10 mins. Then sautéed for a few mins (and added water as needed). Fabulous and healthy
