  • 10 oz (300g) Wild Alaskan Rockfish
  • 2 cups (475 ml) Whole Milk
  • 1/4 onion, chopped
  • SAUCE
  • 2 tablespoons (28 g) unsalted butter
  • 3-4 tbsp (30 to 40 g) plain, all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups (600ml) Whole Milk, splash more if needed
  • 3.5 oz (100 g) grated Swiss cheese, or any on hand like sharp cheddar, grated gruyère cheese, etc,
  • 1/2 tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • Generous pinch of salt and freshly ground pepper
  • TOPPING
  • ⅓ cup chopped flat-leaf parsley, for garnish and adding on the fish
  • 4-5 hard-boiled eggs, sliced in half
  • 3 oz swiss cheese (or grated gruyère cheese)

Instructions

POTATOES

  1. Peel potatoes and cut into quarters. Place in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Season with salt. Place over medium-high heat and bring to the boil. Cook for about 20 minutes or until potatoes are just tender when you pierce it with the fork.
  2. To cooked and drained potatoes, add about 1/2 cup or 118 ml of half and half, and 3 tablespoons the unsalted butter. Crush the potatoes, an and combine with half and half (or cream, milk) and butter until smooth. It doesn't have to be perfectly smooth. Lumps are welcome for this dish. Set aside.

FISH PREP

  1. If the fish is frozen, defrost it. You may leave it overnight in the fridge.
  2. Place all fish and chopped onion in a large saucepan. Cover with milk. Place over medium-low heat and bring to a slow simmer. Poach fish for about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer fish to a baking dish. Strain the milk into a bowl and discard excess. Set aside to cool. By the way, I remove skin, however I like to add in the pot with the fish just to add more flavor. After poaching discard it.

SAUCE

  1. Meanwhile, make the sauce. Melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed pan over low heat and stir in the flour. Add milk bit by bit, stirring after every addition until you have a smooth, silky sauce. Bring to the rolling boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 6 to 10 minutes, or until thickened.
  2. Add in the grated cheese, then squeeze in the lemon juice and keep stirring until the cheese is melted. Season with salt and little black pepper, then remove from the heat.

ASSEMBLY

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C).
  2. Place fish in the baking dish, pour over with the sauce, then add some cheese, equally scatter about the handful of swiss cheese.
  3. Chop into smaller pieces hard boiled eggs then add them over fish. Add a bit of chopped parsley.
  4. Spoon or pipe the mashed potato over the fish, starting at the edge of the dish and working inwards. Scatter with cheese over the top and bake in the oven for about 45 minutes, the sauce is bubbling up at the sides and the top is golden.
  5. Allow it to cool down for at least 10 minutes and served with vegetables such as spinach, peas, and carrots, etc. or maybe just a bowl of mixed green.

Notes

  • You can use any fish that you prefer or like, and throw in shrimps as well. It’s absolutely phenomenal. The most popular fish is white fish such as haddock or cod, salmon and shrimp. I have seen it with crab as well, but I say use whatever fish you go. Also, use of that is more affordable to you.
  • There is no right or wrong. I believe that everyone have their own household staple fierman pie. Some using wine, some spinach, peas or mushrooms, etc.
  • I use fish, white creamy sauce, boiled eggs, cheese and mashed potatoes. That's how my family likes it so I am making it this way.
  • Over time it will be easier and easier to prep and make this dish but it is really not complicated.
  • You can make this in dutch oven as well.

I feel like this is the best invention ever. To be perfectly honest with you all, I was one of those skeptical people. I used a conventional oven in the past and loved it.

However, in the case of air fryer, we are talking about a kitchen gadget that is similar to the conventional oven yet so different. Absolutely amazing!

With that being said, I might be just a bit in love with my air fryer. We have been using it literally every single day since my husband decided to surprise me.

Some things we made are pizza, bacon, boiled eggs, fish, fries, wings as well as fish sticks, burgers, etc. Yes, we are killing it here with the air fryer.

My Anna tested making cookies and somewhat healthy energy bars in the air fryer. Even biscuits came out sort of tasty. Okay, I might be just a little excited so I keep blabbering but I am being honest.

Air Fryer Baby Back Ribs

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

An easy and delicious recipe for Airfryer Baby Back Ribs with sauteed cabbage.

Ingredients

  • 1 rack of baby back ribs, cut ribs into sections
  • 1 tbsp. Liquid Smoke
  • 1 tbsp. Oil
  • Seasoning:
  •  2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Chili powder
  •  1 teaspoon Onion powder
  •  ½ teaspoon Garlic powder
  •  ½ teaspoon Brown Sugar (add low carb sugar if you are keto such as Truvia Brown Sugar Blend)

Instructions

  1. Pat the ribs dry with kitchen paper towel then rub all over oil and liquid smoke.
  2. Mix all the ingredients for seasoning together. Season the ribs with the spices.
  3. Cut the rack of ribs into sections 4-5 ribs to fit the air fryer.
  4. Cook the ribs in the air fryer for 20 to 40 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on the rib thickens as well as your air fryer.
  5. After the ribs are done, you may brush some BBQ sauce and pop in the air fryer for 5 more minutes, but it is not necessary. I like brushing just the leftover drippings for more flavorful ribs.
    If you do not want to add BBQ sauce then just allow the ribs to rest for about 10 min so the juices could go back.

Notes

You can make this Low carb and Keto friendly just by switching a few things. For example, adding low carb sugar. Yes, you may add regular brown sugar as well. It is all about meeting your diet. We are doing low carb so that is why I mention that.

You cannot get a meal more simple than these Beef and Sauce Stuffed Spaghetti Squash Boats. Yes, it does take some time until the squash is cooked but that is pretty much it.

My husband and I devoured this one. Even though I did not use the largest spaghetti squash, we could not finish it so I say one of these serves four people. Especially if you serve it with salad or some type of bread.

We do not consume bread as before and still, this was a pretty satisfying lunch or dinner.

Beef and Sauce Stuffed Spaghetti Squash
Yield: Serves 4

Beef and Sauce Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Ingredients

  • 1 medium Spaghetti Squash 2 to 3 pounds
  • 1 generous Pinch Salt and Black Ground Pepper
  • 1 drizzle Olive Oil

STUFFING

  • 1/2 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1/2 pound Ground Beef 80/20 or whatever you prefer
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder you can saute 1/4 of medium chopped onion instead.
  • 1 pinch Salt and ground black pepper each or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Herbs, Blend
  • 1 1/2 cup Pasta Sauce any sauce that you prefer
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Parsley for garnish
  • 1/4 pound Cheese, freshly sliced of shredded mozzarella, provolone, or mild cheddar cheese works

Instructions

  1. Cut squash in half lengthwise and scoop the seeds out using a spoon. Place squash, cut side down, in a baking dish. Fill pan with hot water to a depth of 1/2 in. Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 35-40 minutes or until tender. I use a knife or a fork to punch through on the side of the bowl. If tender the squash is done. Remove all the water out of not evaporated, then turn the squash halves on the other side.Add a pinch of Salt and pepper in each just to season it, drizzle with a drizzle of olive oil and allow it to roast for an additional 10-15 minutes at 375F.
  2. Meanwhile, make a beef sauce by sauteeing ground beef. Remove excess grease if you wish before adding spices and seasoning. To the ground beef add onion powder, Italian herb blend, salt, and pepper to taste. When the meat is cooked and not bloody add about 1 1/2 cup Sauce. I used Beef flavored sauce.
  3. When the squash is cooked and cool enough to handle, use a fork to scrape the squash making squash spaghetti stand.
  4. On the top of spaghetti squash add an equal amount of beef sauce on top, using fork mix it a bit coating spaghetti squash with the sauce, then add cheese. You can also take the spaghetti squash out completely and layer it like lasagna (sauce, squash, cheese, etc.) using skin as a bowl, but I prefer it this way.
  5. Place it back in the oven and bake uncovered, at 375 for 10-12 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted.Enjoy!

Notes

You may use ground, minced or diced chicken bites for this recipe.
