Air-Fryer Fish and Fries

Looking for easy air fryer recipes? Try these simple fish and chips. The fish fillets 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
  • FISH:
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large 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, pepper and salt. In batches, place potatoes in a single layer on tray in air-fryer basket; cook until just tender, 5-10 minutes Toss potatoes to redistribute; cook until lightly browned and crisp, 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 a single layer on tray in air-fryer basket. Cook until fish is lightly browned and just beginning to flake easily with a fork, 8-10 minutes, turning halfway through cooking. Do not overcook. Return fries to basket to heat through. Serve immediately. If desired, serve with tartar sauce.

Test Kitchen tip
