  1. Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees F.

  2. Remove the woody ends from the stalks. 

  3. Add asparagus to the basket of your air fryer. Lightly spritz/spray with olive oil.

  4. Cook for 7 minutes, or until they have reached your desired level of crispy.

  5.  Sprinkle finished asparagus with a pinch of sea salt. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

If you're cooking a large batch, shake the basket halfway through to distribute the stalks around for even cooking.


Don't be aggressive with spritzing the olive oil on the stalks. Too much olive oil = mushy asparagus.
