How to prepare tuna cutlets recipe in an air fryer

  1. First make sure you drain the tuna well then transfer it to a bowl. Add the eggs, Parmesan cheese, milk, a pinch of salt and start mixing with a fork.
  2. Season with salt and pepper and, to taste, flavored with parsley or grated lemon zest.
  3. At this point, all that remains is to incorporate the breadcrumbs a little at a time until you obtain a consistency that is easy to work with your hands. Don't overdo it because the bread will start to dry out after a few minutes.
  4. Form 4 cutlets by dividing the dough into equal parts. Dip them one by one first in the flour, then in the lightly beaten egg and lastly in the breadcrumbs. As they are ready, place them in the basket of the air fryer.
  5. Season them with a few puffs of spray oil and cook at 180°C for 15 minutes, turning them halfway through cooking. Serve them after they have cooled down for a few minutes.

Among other tasty recipes with the air fryer we suggest you try our chicken meatballs : they are light and delicious.
