Recipe Tips

  • I recommend using a meat thermometer to check whether the fish is fully cooked. The internal temperature should be at least 63°C (145°F). You can double-check the product box for temperatures to be safe.
  • The oil is optional, but I recommend using it as it will help the batter get crisp.
  • Larger or smaller pieces of fish will result in different cooking times. If you want to be safe, check the fish at the eight-minute mark, then check it every 4 minutes.
  • Do not overload the air fryer as it will cause inconsistent cooking and soggy batter. Try to keep the fish as a single layer. You may need to cook in batches.
  • Please refer to the frozen battered fish box for the most accurate nutritional information.
