Crumbed fish is one of my favorite fried items, and this air-fried version of the recipe gives me great flavor without the fat.

The flounder turned out really well in the air fryer. After reading reviews about the recipe being bland I made some changes. I added salt and pepper to the egg wash. To the bread crumbs I added 2tsp of old bay, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1tsp paprika, and some salt & pepper. Can’t wait to make it again. Read More

Needs seasoning added - I added garlic powder and thyme after the first batch. Otherwise very moist fish! Read More

This was by far, the best fish I have ever eaten in my entire life. I bought a whole bunch of cod filets because I wanted to make beer battered fish. I fried some up in the deep fryer and the beer batter coating came off. That's when I found this recipe and I made one for myself, just to make sure they would turn out alright. Way better than any store-bought or take-out battered cod, ever! The only adjustment I made was that I used EVOO instead of vegetable oil because that's all I had on hand. Thank you! Read More

I made this recipe and we really liked it. A lot healthier than pan frying the fish. I used the fish pre- set option on my fryer. Will definitely make this again. Read More

Awesome starter recipe for my new air fryer! i mixed my bread crumbs 50/50 with some potato chip dust, which added enough oil to make these babies ROCK! Read More

This was delicious. I slightly modified the recipe for an even healthier meal. I used olive oil instead vegetable oil. I used 2 egg whites in place of the 1 egg. I also used salt and pepper on the filet before dipping in egg. I baked at 360 degrees for 12 minutes. It was amazing. Will make again. Read More

We made the fish without any oil at all in the mix. That just sounded weird to us. I think next time we will try a little oil just to see if it is good that way too. We did add spices to the breadcrumbs and we used gluten free breadcrumbs. It turned out really good in our air fryer. Crispy on the outside and the fish was moist. We served coleslaw, French fries, and tater tots with it. Read More

This is incredible! I was a little skeptical at first. We have a freezer full of Halibut from our Alaska trip this summer and I wanted to replicate a delicious meal we had at the beach this past weekend at a nice Chinese restaurant. Crispy Halibut with Ginger-Scallion sauce. I used Panko (white) bread crumbs from Wegmans. I also used peanut oil because I like the flavor. My fillets are big because the halibut we caught was 135 pounds. I dipped the fillets in the egg and then the panko crumbs and oil mixture and into the air fryer basket for 25 mins. They were fantastic. This is a wonderful recipe. I am so happy I found it. I can now have crispy Halibut when ever I want. Read More

Delicious way to make healthier fish. I didn't add the oil to the crumbs, instead sprayed it on before frying (so I used a lot less). Turned out crisp and tasty. Made it 2 nights in a row! Read More

As written, this is a 4. The texture of the fish is fantastic, but its a little bit blah. I made this as written the first time, and today I added some granulated garlic, onion powder, black pepper, and smoked paprika to the bread crumbs...its much better, but will add some salt next time.
