Enjoy a seafood dinner with these Easy Air Fryer Fish Recipes, each one provides a great option for dinner!
Fish is absolutely the EASIEST thing to cook in the air fryer and with all of these Air Fryer Fish Recipes, you will have plenty to choose from for dinner too.
How do you cook fish in the air fryer?
The easiest way to cook fish in the air fryer is to simply bread it and cook it. We do this regularly with Air Fryer Catfish, we bread it with the fish fry and use a coat of olive oil spray to then cook it in the air fryer.
It can be dipped in egg and breaded as well, but we’ve found just dipping it in the breading works just as well too.
By cooking it in the air fryer, you are using more than 75% less oil because it’s not being deep-fried. That’s a big win for eating healthier.
Can you cook frozen fish in the air fryer?
Yes, it can be cooked frozen in the air fryer, the cooking time may just need to be adjusted a bit. If you are using freshly frozen fish, place it under cold water to get any ice off first.
If it’s already breaded, for instance, fish sticks or similar frozen foods, just go ahead and cook those frozen in the air fryer.
Can you use aluminum foil in the air fryer?
Many times when cooking any of these air fryer fish recipes, it’s easiest to add foil to the air fryer to make it easier to clean up. It can absolutely be done, BUT you need to be sure to roll the foil up on the sides so that the air still circulates.
Another alternative that I happen to use now is these parchment sheets for air fryers.
