Get ready to make a delicious dinner tonight with less than 3 ingredients with this Easy Air Fryer Catfish!
Do you ever feel like you made a huge dinner win? That’s exactly how I felt when I made this Air Fryer Catfish and paired it with Air Fryer Hush Puppies. Did I mention, it’s all gluten free too? It sure is!
My son could not get enough of this dinner, which says a lot for him because he’s so picky. I decided to use catfish nuggets to make this. It’s much easier for family meals, because the portions are smaller.
That means when you have little ones like my daughter, you can start with one little piece and go from there.
Once you have the catfish nuggets, all you do is pat it with fish fry and add it to the air fryer.
Yep, sure is! That’s called an EASY dinner!
This is one of those I keep on hand for a quick meal during the week, especially as we have headed back to school.
This is the first full week of school and we are trying to get back to a routine. It normally takes a few weeks to adjust, mostly for me, not so much for them. I will admit that I happen to really love sleeping in during the summers. That 6am alarm clock comes around way too early.
We got the kids out the door though and off to school last week, so hopefully we survive our first full week.
I don’t think I’m emotionally prepared yet though for homework. What is it with crying during homework?
I don’t remember crying during homework as a kid, do you? Granted I feel like homework these days is much harder than it was when I was a kid.
I guess as an adult you realize that it really was never worth crying over and all I can think when I see my son do that is that one day it won’t even matter.
In the meantime at least we have some tasty Air Fryer Catfish while getting through the homework routine.

Straight corn meal works too. Great for 50 years in my family. For hush puppies, try adding ketchup, onions and beer to the meal. Again. 50 years makes perfect. If you can find someone who sells the whole catfish, of course skinned, without the head, but with the tail, not just the filets, you will be in heaven.
That sounds perfect to me!
