Dine like you're in a traditional British pub. These moist fish fillets from the air fryer have a fuss-free coating that's healthier but just as crunchy and golden as the deep-fried kind. Simply seasoned, the crispy fries are perfect on the side. —Janice Mitchell, Aurora, Colorado

Ingredients

  • 1 pound potatoes (about 2 medium)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • FISH:
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large Nellie’s Free Range Egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2/3 cup crushed cornflakes
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound haddock or cod fillets
  • Tartar sauce, optional

Directions

Preheat air fryer to 400°. Peel and cut potatoes lengthwise into 1/2-in.-thick slices; cut slices into 1/2-in.-thick sticks.
In a large bowl, toss potatoes with oil, salt and pepper. Working in batches as needed, place potatoes in air fryer basket; cook 5-10 minutes or until just tender. Toss potatoes in basket to redistribute; continue to cook until lightly browned and crisp, about 5-10 minutes longer.
Meanwhile, in a shallow bowl, mix flour and pepper. In another shallow bowl, whisk egg with water. In a third bowl, toss cornflakes with cheese and cayenne. Sprinkle fish with salt; dip into flour mixture to coat both sides; shake off excess. Dip in egg mixture, then in cornflake mixture, patting to help coating adhere.
Remove fries from basket; keep warm. Place fish in air fryer basket. Cook until fish is lightly browned and just beginning to flake easily with a fork, turning half way, about 8-10 minutes. Do not over cook. Return fries to basket to heat through. Serve immediately. If desired, serve with tartar sauce. Yield: 4 servings.

Test Kitchen tip
  • In our testing, we have found cook times vary dramatically between brands of air fryers. As a result, we have given wider than normal ranges on suggested cook times. Begin checking at the first time listed and adjust as needed.
