- Fish fillets (any white fish like tilapia, cod, or haddock works well)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Lemon wedges (for serving)
For the coating:
- All-purpose flour
- Eggs (beaten)
- Breadcrumbs or panko
- Preheat your air fryer to the recommended temperature (usually around 400°F or 200°C) for a few minutes.
- While the air fryer is preheating, prepare the coating station. Place the all-purpose flour on one plate, the beaten eggs in a shallow bowl, and the breadcrumbs or panko on another plate.
- Season the fish fillets with salt and pepper to taste.
- Dredge a fish fillet in the flour, shaking off any excess.
- Dip the floured fillet into the beaten eggs, ensuring it is fully coated.
- Transfer the fillet to the plate with breadcrumbs or panko and press down gently to coat the fish thoroughly.
- Place the coated fish fillet into the preheated air fryer basket. You can add a light spray of cooking oil or use a misting spray bottle to lightly coat the fillet for extra crispiness, but this step is optional.
- Cook the fish fillet in the air fryer for about 8 to 10 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillet and the model of your air fryer. Check the fillet’s internal temperature to ensure it’s cooked through (145°F or 63°C for fish).
- Once the fish fillet is cooked, remove it from the air fryer and let it rest for a minute before serving.
- Serve the airfried fish fillet with lemon wedges and your favorite side dishes or salads.
