Air Fryer fish and chips

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!

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!
