  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted

  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds

  4. Cook peas in the preheated air fryer in batches, if needed, until just tender, tossing once, about 10 minutes. Remove and keep warm while cooking fish.

  5. Brush fish with 1/2 of the remaining butter mixture. Place fillets in air fryer basket. Cook 4 minutes; turn fish. Brush with remaining butter mixture. Cook 5 to 6 minutes more or until fish begins to flake when tested with a fork. Serve with snap peas and orange wedges.
