‘Juicy’ chicken wings and ‘rapid’ salmon can be cooked in an air fryer

Cooking in an air fryer is cheap and results in tasty food. But, for those who have bought their first air fryer and are using the appliance for the first time, it’s difficult to know where to start. British kitchenware brand Lakeland has shared its favourite air fryer recipes, for both beginners and professional chefs.

Juicy chicken wings

Lakeland said: “If you’re a wing lover, then air fryer chicken wings are a must-try. These tender, peppery, fried chicken pieces are super easy to make in the air fryer.”


One lb chicken wings, (split into flats and drums)

One tbsp oil

One tsp salt

One tsp garlic powder

One tsp chilli powder

One tsp smoked paprika

A generous grind of black pepper

Optional, two tbsp of your favourite wing sauce


Pat down your chicken pieces with a paper towel to dry them. Next, in a large bowl, add the wings and sprinkle over the seasoning. Toss to combine.

Place the chicken in the air frying basket, spacing each wing out evenly. Air fry at 200°C for 18 minutes. Shake the basket once or twice during cooking so that everything cooks evenly.

Pop your crispy chicken wings out of the air fryer. Coat them with sauce or enjoy them just as they are.

Sweet and spicy salmon bites

Lakeland said: “If seafood is your thing, then air fryer fish is a must-try. Spice up your weeknight dinners with this rapid recipe for air-fried salmon.”


Two salmon fillets, cut into equal one-inch cubes

One tbsp sesame oil

One tbsp light soy sauce

One tsp brown sugar

One thumb-sized piece of ginger, finely grated

Three minced cloves of garlic

Spring onions for garnish

Optional, big pinch of chilli flakes


Setting the spring onions side, throw everything else into a large mixing bowl. Ensure that your salmon pieces are well coated and leave them to rest for 10 to 15 minutes. Spread your salmon evenly across the air fryer tray.

Cook them in the air fryer at 200°C for six to eight minutes. There you have it, succulent salmon bites rustled up in seconds.

Deliciously light onion rings

Lakeland said: “This classic side dish is about to become a headline act. After air frying onion rings once, you’ll never look back.”


One large onion, sliced into half-inch rings

One egg

100g flour

110ml full-fat milk

One tsp garlic powder

220g coarse breadcrumbs

Two tbsp oil

Salt and pepper to taste


Set out three shallow dishes. In the first, mix your flour and garlic powder and a generous grind of salt and pepper; in the second, mix the milk and egg; in the third, add your breadcrumbs with one tbsp oil – stirring well to make sure all the crumbs are lightly coated.

Dip your onion rings into the bowls to coat with flour, egg and then breadcrumbs, then again into the egg and breadcrumbs. Press the rings gently to make sure the coating sticks.

Drizzle or spray with oil and lay the onion rings out on the air fryer tray. Preheat the air fryer to 200°F for 10 to 13 minutes or until crisp on the outside.
