Although this time we are going to prepare the entire recipe in the 5.5L airfryer to make it healthier.

There are many variants of this recipe such as the recipe for squid with peas and broad beans, adding prawns or in American sauce.

Many times I usually prepare this recipe with squid in its ink but in this case I wanted a quick, simple and healthy dinner.

This recipe explains with all the ingredients and the step by step of how to cook the squid with peas in a airfryer.

Although you can add what you like the most, such as rice with squid with peas, some potatoes or stew them with a little broth.

Before, I used to cook a squid stew with peas in a Thermomix but now I use the air fryer which is faster, more convenient and easier to clean.

Tips for a good recipe for squid with peas in a airfryer

  • If you can pass the garlic and parsley through a crusher so that it is very fine, it will be better (I don't like to chew pieces of garlic, that's why I do it like this)
  • Add the peas and onion in the same mold with the squid to take advantage of the flavor of the juice that they have been able to leave
  • If you let the peas defrost for about 10 minutes before starting to cook, it is better, although it is not essential.
  • Both when you cook the squid and when you cook it all I recommend that you stir from time to time during cooking
  • You can pair this recipe with a sweet, healthy and easy dessert like Air Fryer Roasted Apples
