Preparing the Fish

Before you can air fry your fish, you need to prepare it. Start by rinsing the fish with cold water and patting it dry with a paper towel. If you’re using a whole fish, you’ll need to gut and scale it. Once the fish is prepped, season it with salt, pepper, and any other herbs or spices you’d like.

Adding Oil

Once the fish is seasoned, you’ll need to add a light coating of oil. This will help the fish crisp up in the air fryer. You can use any type of oil you’d like, but olive oil or avocado oil are both good choices. Use a pastry brush to lightly coat the fish with oil.

Air Frying the Fish

Once the fish is prepped and oiled, you’re ready to air fry it. Place the fish in the air fryer basket and set the temperature to 350°F. Cook the fish for 8-10 minutes, flipping it halfway through. The exact cooking time will depend on the size and thickness of the fish.

Checking for Doneness

When the fish is done cooking, it should be golden brown and flaky. To check for doneness, insert a fork into the thickest part of the fish. If it flakes easily, it’s done. If not, cook it for a few more minutes.

Serving the Fish

Once the fish is cooked, let it rest for a few minutes before serving. Serve it with your favorite sides and enjoy!
