Inspiration and Ideas

Slow-Cooked Chicken Drumsticks
Rating: Unrated 42
These delicious drumsticks are made in the oven and when they are done the meat falls right off the bone. Also, you can add more seasonings of your choice.
Crispy Fried Fish
Rating: Unrated 148
Whip up a regular beer batter, and add a final spicy dry dredge to create a truly crispy dish.
Cajun Air Fryer Salmon
Rating: 4.5 stars 40

Full of flavor with a hint of sweetness, this moist and delicious salmon is ready in under 10 minutes! You may want to add salt before serving if you are using an unsalted Cajun seasoning. I like to use a Misto® sprayer with my own oil, but feel free to use regular cooking spray. For best results, use center-cut fillets that are about an inch thick.
