(Skinny Southern Recipes)

If you’ve purchased an air fryer, you know just how much of a life-saver and insanely useful kitchen appliance it is! What’s amazing about this smart tool is how it cooks food so quickly and easily, without all the mess and oil splatters than come with pan-frying or deep-frying meals.

Best of all, you don’t need to use as much oil to create the the same crispy effect on the exterior of your favorite foods, which also makes them healthier to boot.

While most people use the air fryer to cook air fryer chicken recipes, air fryer snacks or even air fryer meatballs, not as many use it to make air fryer fish, perhaps because fish seems a little more delicate.

Are Air Fryers Good For Fish?

Yes! Air fryers are actually great for cooking fish, so don’t be worried about throwing a fillet or two in your air fryer anytime you crave fish for lunch or dinner (or breakfast, but hey, who’s judging?)!

Can You Fry Battered Fish in the Air Fryer?

Battered fish can definitely be air fried too, and the batter actually turns really crispy and keeps the fish meat tender and juicy on the inside.

Does Fish Need to be Thawed Before Air Frying?

One of the great things about air frying is that fish can go straight from the freezer to the air fryer, as the thawing process actually begins once the air fryer is switched on! So no need for thawing fish before air frying—how amazing is that?
