How does an air fryer heat the fish fillets?
The air fryer uses hot air to circulate around the food, in this case, the breaded fish fillets. A little bit of oil spray will be used to keep that crispy breading but the rest will be simple using your air fryer basket.
Tips for Making Air Fryer Frozen Fish Fillets:
I typically use Gorton’s Fish Fillets when making these in the Air Fryer; however, any frozen fish fillets can be used to make this, so choose your favorite brand. I hear Trader Joe’s has some great fish fillets too, those will work for this as well.
Quick Tip for Frozen Fish: The only thing you need for this is frozen fish fillets and grapeseed oil spray. If you prefer you can add lemon as well to give it a little squeeze of lemon juice before serving.
The fish fillets can be placed frozen right into the air fryer basket in a single layer, making sure there is room around them for air to circulate. The basket should be coated with grapeseed oil spray before placing the fillets in the basket, then add a little oil spray to the fillets as well.
Once the frozen fillets are ready to cook, set the air fryer to 390 degrees F for 10 minutes, they can be flipped over halfway through the cooking time if you prefer.
Once that 10 minutes is up, you have some great fish fillets to top over a salad or pair with your favorite vegetables. It’s just the best quick dinner! These simple steps will get you on your way to a great crispy fish fillet.
The internal temperature should be at least 145 degrees F before serving, which can be checked with a meat thermometer.
That is how easy it is to make frozen fish fillets in the air fryer.
Remember that these can also be made in the Ninja Foodi or Ninja Speedi too. If using either of those, simply use the air fryer function.
