Although this fish is low carb and light, you won't be sacrificing flavor. Using fresh lemon pepper really kicks up the flavor of mild tilapia.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for 3 minutes.

  • While fryer is preheating, rinse tilapia fillets and pat dry with a paper towel.

  • Combine lemon zest, olive oil, pepper, salt, and garlic in a bowl. Rub spice mixture over the tilapia. Sprinkle lightly with paprika. Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray and place the filets inside, coated side up.

  • Air fry until fish can be flaked with a fork, 7 to 10 minutes. Do not crowd the fish filets; you may need to fry a second batch, depending on the size of your air fryer.

  • Remove tilapia to a plate, garnish with chopped parsley, and serve with lemon wedges.

Cook's Note:

All air fryers cook differently, and timing will also depend on the thickness of your filets.
