Perfect air fryer fish and chips recipe
Who knew that you can cook amazingly crunchy and velvety soft fish in the air fryer, that actually will be healthy for you? No dealing with greasy oil and extra calories.
For this recipe i used frozen cod fillets, that i took out of the freezer about an hour before cooking time.
Fish is so easy to defrost! If its a big piece- put it in the fridge overnight or for a small or medium piece- just leave it on the counter for an hour or two!
Best Airfryer battered fish
Well, i didnt try every fish in the air fryer, but i can tell then so far my favorites are Catfish (love it!) , Tilapia, Cod and Salmon.
Oh when they are buttered and then air fried- their texture becomes so silky smooth and absolutely delicious. Crunchy on the outside and heavenly soft inside- what could be better!
How to make perfect air fryer fish and chips.
- Toss potato wedges in a bowl with some salt and oil. Add them to the air fryer (400F for 20 minutes). Shake the basket half way through. Remove cooked “chips” and put into a bowl.
- Now you will need three shallow bowls. First for the flour, second for beaten eggs, third for breadcrumbs. Working one fillet at at time, dredge fillet in flour, then eggs, then breadcrumbs. ( My daughter was helping me (see picture)
- Add fillets to the Air fryer basket (at 330F for 15 minutes
- Flip fillets half way through
Serve immediately with potato “chips” and some aioli!
