  • Combine flour, black pepper, salt, and garlic powder in a shallow dish. Whisk egg and water together in a second shallow dish. Combine bread crumbs and cornmeal in a third shallow dish.

  • Dip each fish fillet until fully coated in the flour mixture, then in the egg mixture, and finally in the bread crumb mixture. Spray fillets with cooking spray and place in the prepared air fryer basket in a single layer, cooking in batches if necessary.

  • Cook in the air fryer at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) until breaded coating is browned and fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, 6 to 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine sour cream, mayonnaise, lime juice, salt, and dried chipotle pepper in a medium bowl. Add coleslaw mix and cilantro; toss to coat.

  • Serve fish fillets in hoagie rolls. Top with chipotle slaw and queso fresco and serve with lime wedges.

Cook's Note:

Any 4- to 6-ounce white fish fillets (cod, flounder, or tilapia) can be used for these sandwiches.

I loved this dish especially the slaw! Very easy to whip up and it makes a lot of slaw. I plan on using my leftover slaw for some pulled pork sliders. I added some extra Cajun seasoning to the fish breading, but other than than I followed the recipe pretty close. Read More

These turned out great as written and the chipotle and cilantro in the slaw was a nice change. Bonus is that the leftover piece of fish I had stayed crispy in the fridge overnight which is something you will not get with a deep fry. Read More

This was my first recipe to make in my new air fryer and it did not disappoint. I love that there was no grease to clean up off my stove top. The cod turned out wonderful and loved the slaw. We did have to add a bit more hot sauce but that's because my husband and I like spicy food. I will definitely make this again. Read More

The fish I chose wasn't of the quality I was hoping but I will for sure use this recipe again. It was perfect. I may add extra spice paprika and chili powder to give it a little more flavor. Read More
