What Kind of Fish Can Be Cooked in the Air Fryer?

This air fryer fish recipe works with any kind of fish fillets! Use cod, tilapia, catfish, pollock, hake, haddock, or even salmon.

Thawing Fish

The best way to thaw fish is by leaving it in the fridge overnight. Or, if the piece is not too big, you could just leave it in the counter for an hour or 2 until it’s completely thawed.

How to Air Fry Fish

Normally, we use fresh fish fillets to make this. But you could also use high-quality frozen fish fillets, just make sure that they’re completely defrosted/thawed before you bread and air fry them. You will need oil to coat the fish fillets before coating in the breading. You can also go for olive oil (love the flavor!), canola, or vegetable oil. For the breading, use either homemade or store-bought dried bread crumbs. Mix with any spices that you like, onion and garlic powders, black pepper, salt etc Coat each fish fillet in the seasoning breadcrumbs, and remove any excess breading before you cook in the air fryer. Cook in the air fryer at 200°C (390°F) for 12-15 minutes, flipping halfway through at 8-10 minutes. Serve hot with tartar sauce and lemon wedges.

Expert Tips

  • You could use either fresh fish fillets or frozen fish fillets that are completely thawed. The fillets should not be too thin as thin strips won’t work in this recipe. For smaller pieces of fish, try this Air Fryer fish sticks recipe.
  • Make sure that your air fryer basket is not overcrowded as that will prevent the fish from crisping.
  • You might need to adjust the cooking times depending on the kind and the thickness of the fish that you’re using and the model of your air fryer. Fish is ready when it’s easily flaked with a fork.
