  • Pat tilapia fillets dry using a paper towel. Coat both sides of fish with flour.

  • Whisk egg, lemon juice, and salt together in a shallow bowl. Place bread crumbs and lemon-pepper seasoning in a separate shallow bowl.

  • Dip flour-coated fish first in egg and then in bread crumb mixture. Press down on the fish so that the bread crumbs stick. Spray both sides of fish with cooking spray.

  • Place fillets in the air fryer basket and cook for 5 minutes. Flip fish over using a spatula and cook for 3 minutes more. Serve with lemon wedges.

This is the "BOMB." This is by far the easiest recipe I have ever used. And the results, dynamite. The ONLY tweak is this, after I remove the Tilapia from the air fryer I squeeze half a lemon on the crust. Let it absorb and serve. Then add a little lemon zest, voila. We have used this recipe 10+ times and the results are identical and the taste, fantastic. Love Ya! Read More
