You can often buy them frozen at any grocery store in the seafood aisle. I used thawed lobster tails because I think they air fry better, but if you use frozen just add a couple of minutes to the cooking time below.

Using a meat thermometer, check to see if the temperature is at least 140 degrees F. But be careful, the shells if very sharp, once you start breaking them.

I love home cooking because it makes a dish like a baked lobster tail so much more accessible and affordable. I bought frozen lobster tails at a steal of S$99 for 12 tails from a seafood wholesaler during a sale (read my detailed review with buying tips here ; Disclosure: they are my Qoo10 affiliate links).

That works out to about $8.25 per tail, which is a fraction of what the restaurants are charging! See Also: To enjoy the taste of fresh seafood, I always use the simplest approach to cooking them.

In this case, I simply butterfly and bake them in butter. That turn out to be an unbelievably umami -laden sauce which I spooned over the baked lobster.

I positioned the oven rack near the heating coil (on top of my oven) so that it has a broiling effect. Serve with cherry tomatoes, a wedge of lemon and parsley for garnishing. For the past several weeks I’ve been on an air fryer roll, trying to air fry just about everything.

Surely, an air fried steak misses smoky flavor, grill marks and caramelization. More than that, an air fried steak does not overcook nearly as much near the surface because the meat does not come in contact with hot metal.

While you can just take a steak, put some salt and pepper on it and start frying it, I strongly suggest that you prep the meat first. If you have a few days at your disposal, put some salt and pepper on your steaks, throw them on a plate and refrigerate, uncovered.

Flip the steaks every 12 hours or so and blot the liquids with a paper towel. Yes, but with longer time frames the meat will have an opportunity to re-absorb some lost liquid, and the rest will be evaporated.

Humidity in fridges is very low so all that excess water will evaporate rather quickly. Seeing amazing results with letting steaks rest after searing and before finishing them, I wanted to see how that could be implemented with air frying.

The meat surface temperature does not get hot enough to warrant an intermittent rest time. That’s the reason an air fryer steak does not have that intensely gray, overcooked area near the surface.

Sprinkle the steaks with salt and pepper, place on a plate and refrigerate for 2-3 days, uncovered. This step is recommended for superior tenderness and enhanced flavor, but you can skip it if pressed for time.

Remove the steaks from the fridge 45-60 minutes before cooking and let them sit at room temperature. Brush the steaks with melted butter on both sides, place on the rack of your air fryer.

The times will need to be adjusted further if air frying steaks thicker or thinner than 1.25” thick. These cooking times are approximate, so use an instant read thermometer in conjunction with the table in the Notes section.
