Since you will see they taste just the same, with less cooking time and not having to heat the whole house up.

WHAT TO SERVE WITH LAMB SHANKS
WHAT IS AIR FRYING?
Air frying is a healthy alternative to deep frying food. And most air fryers have been marketed in a way to make you think that this cooking technique is best for those who make a lot of those at home.
Well I am here to tell you that you do not need to just be a deep fried food lover to want to use this cooking method. RATHER if you love to bake food, then this is also a great alternative. And in most cases is much healthier than traditional baking methods.
Because air frying mimics deep fried foods but uses little to no oil. So you can enjoy all the same deep – fried or baked foods that we have all come to know and love again but in a healthy way.
HOW LONG TO AIR FRY LAMB SHANKS
I use the T-Fal air fryer and put them on for 8 minutes, please check with your air fryers cooking instructions.
However, to convert an oven-cooked recipe to an air-fryer one, the general rule of thumb is to reduce the suggested temperature by 25°F or 3.889 C and then cut the cook time by about 20%
CAN YOU AIR FRY LAMB SHANKS
Yes, and they will turn out just as good as they would as if you were to fry or bake them.
CAN I USE ANY KIND OF AIR FRYER?
I currently have and use the T-fal ActiFry Fryer.
And cook them in batches of four.
Also on occasion I will use my Gotham Steel Fryer as well AND most recently use the CHEFMAN fryer.
All these tools work well for this recipe!
HOW TO AIR FRY LAMB SHANKS
- You will want to start by marinading the lamb in a bowl for up to one hour in the fridge.
- The marinade consists of chopped garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper, rosemary and thyme.
It is really that simple!
