Air Frying Sweet Potato Wedges

In today's post, I am going to share how to air fry sweet potato wedges.

I grew up in a country where sweet potatoes are one of the major cash crops so I have grown up loving them.  Sweet potatoes were like bread for most families during breakfast.

In this case, you will be cooking them in a healthier way as the air fryer allows us to cook using less oil if we want to.

Your health is more important to us so we endeavor to provide recipes that use less oil.

To prepare this we need the following ingredients:


  • 2 sweet potatoes. These should be cut lengthwise into wedges
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili flakes
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • Sea salt, to taste


  • The first thing is to preheat the air fryer to 400°F.
  • Put the potato wedges into a pan or pot of salted water.
  • Boil the contents. Once the boiling point is reached, you need to drain the salted water.
  • Then put the potato wedges into a bowl.
  • Brush the potato wedges with some oil or use a spoon to spread it over the wedges. If you use a spoon then you have to mix them to ensure that the oil has covered the wedges evenly.
  • Then add the chili flakes, salt, and pepper and stir the contents.
  • Place the potatoes into the air fryer basket and cook for approximately 25 minutes. Check after 10 minutes and shake the contents to make sure that they are cooked evenly.
  • Cook until the potatoes are tender and golden brown.
  • Lastly, sprinkle with sea salt before serving.
  • Enjoy!

Air Fryed Potato wedges

If you are interested in air frying potato wedges then this recipe is for you.  I have always had a soft spot of potato wedges, especially on special occasions.

I guess it is because I consider it as probably a much healthier way of preparing for potatoes when compared to dipping them in oil. French fries have probably given a bad name to Irish potatoes.

Amount: 300-800g
Approximate cooking time: 18-25 minutes
Temperature: 356°F (180°C)

To prepare this you need the following ingredients.


  • 2 medium white potatoes. These should be cut into small wedges.
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 crushed garlic cloves.
  • A fresh rosemary sprig
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Apply a thin coat of oil on the inside of the air fryer cooking basket and preheat the air fryer to 356°F (180°C).
  • Put the cut potato wedges into a pan of salted water and boil.
  • Once the boiling point is reached you need to drain the salted water.
  • Then put the wedges into a bowl and add the remaining ingredients and mix them contents in the bowl.
  • You then spray the potato wedges with oil lightly depending on your needs.
  • Place them in the cooking basket and cook for approximately 18-25. Checking them until they are golden brown and crispy. This all depends on how large the wedges are.
  • During the cooking process shake the cooking basket at least halfway to ensure even cooking.
  • Enjoy.

How To Air Fry Tilapia Fish Properly and Enjoy it!

I like fish very much and when I bought my Salter Airfryer the first thing I ever did was to air fry tilapia fish I bought from one of our local markets. I did not know what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised by what came out of the air fryer.

The fish was well cooked and it tasted even better than my oven cooked fish. It was also well cooked on all sides.

The air fryer also made it easy for me to turn over the fish during the cooking process due to the non-coating nature of the cooking basket.

I can, therefore, encourage anyone to try air frying tilapia or any fish and you won't regret it.

Below is an air fryer tilapia recipe that you can use to create your own yummy tilapia dish.

Ingredients needed

  • 3 or 4 tilapia fillets
  • fish seasoning or any seasoning of your choice
  • vegetable oil.
  • salt 


  • First, you need to preheat the air fryer to about 400°F.
  • Brush the tilapia fillets on all sides with the vegetable oil or olive oil if you like.
  • Sprinkle the fillets with the fish seasoning of your choice.
  • Sprinkle some salt on all sides of the fish fillets.
  • Place the fish in the non-stick cooking basket
  • Cook for approximately 10 minutes.
  • Halfway through the cooking turn the fish.
  • After 10 minutes check to see if it is well cooked. If not cook again for a few minutes until you are satisfied that it is well fried.
  • Serve and enjoy your yummy fish fillets.

How to Air Fry Whole Tilapia

While I enjoy eating fried fish fillets, I must confess that I prefer buying and frying it whole with all the bones, etc. 

Maybe it is because I grew up in a country where it was rare to find fillets. Therefore when I go to a market I am more likely to buy whole fish than fillets.

To cook this I use more or less the same ingredients mentioned above except that in my case it is a whole fish. I however rarely air fry it whole as I prefer to split the fish into two parts.

The instructions for this are as follows:

  • Preheat the air fryer to about 400°F as above.
  • Airbrush the fish with olive oil and also add some fish seasoning and salt.
  • Then place the fish in the cooking basket.
  • The difference is in the time it takes to cook as in my case I usually cook for about 45 minutes.
  • Turn the fish halfway.
  • Check to see if it is well cooked.
  • Enjoy!

I should point out that I have never been disappointed when I air fry tilapia fish. I actually prefer to air fry than to cook my fish in my oven. The air fryer makes sure that the fish is well cooked on all sides.
