Make some delicious Easy Air Fryer Fish Sticks in minutes, these are made with frozen fish sticks!

Frozen Fish Sticks are a classic and easy to make in your air fryer in just 10 minutes!  This is a great go-to for a busy dinner night or to teach the kids to make too.

These can be made with regular fish sticks or gluten-free fish sticks, they work the same either way!

Can you cook frozen fish sticks in the air fryer?

Frozen fish sticks are very easy to cook in the air fryer, simply coat the air fryer with olive oil cooking spray and evenly place the fish sticks in the basket.  Once they are in the basket cook in the air fryer at 390*F for 10 minutes.

That’s it!  There is no pre-heating needed either, just put them in for 10 minutes.  Of course, since all air fryers heat differently you need to check on them to be sure they are cooking nicely. 

Typically in an air fryer, they will be done within 10-12 minutes.

They can be flipped over halfway through the cooking time too if you prefer.  

We pair ours with these Air Fryer French Fries.

Can you use Aluminum Foil in the Air Fryer?

Yes, you can line your air fryer with aluminum foil, but be sure the sides are rolled up so that the air will still circulate.  This is a good option for a food item that may fall through the holes of the basket on the air fryer.

It’s also a great way to avoid much cleanup.  I’ve found it to be unnecessary though when making these in the air fryer, they are not very messy, so it’s easy to clean up without using the foil.

Of course, never put foil in the air fryer without food on it!

Now it’s time for a quick and easy meal!

    I’ve wondered about doing fish sticks and fillets in thee air fryer myself. Do you mind sharing with me the brand you prefer, there are so many out there, some are horrible.

      If you are going for gluten-free, I suggest Ians, they are my favorite. For regular, we like Fisherboy and Gorton’s.
