In a large bowl, toss potato with oil, pepper and salt. Place potato pieces in a single layer in air fryer basket; cook until just tender, 5-10 minutes Toss potatoes in basket to redistribute; continue to cook until lightly browned and crisp, 5-10 minutes longer.
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.

Classic pub fare like fish and chips can be a real grease-fest, but not when your air fryer ’s invited to the party. Don’t skip the rich and tangy malt vinegar on the side; it brings a lot of flavor without the added calories and fat of tartar sauce.
While potatoes cook, stir together flour and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt in a shallow dish. Stir together pinko and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt in a third shallow dish.
Place fish in a single layer in air fryer basket, and cook in batches at 375 °F until golden brown, 10 minutes, turning fish over halfway through cooking. To serve, place 2 pieces of fish and equal portions' potato spirals on each plate with 2 tablespoons malt vinegar for dipping.
Set up your dredging station with three bowls with the flour mixture, egg and pinko breadcrumbs. I like to add paprika, garlic powder and salt and pepper to the flour.
Pat the fish dry with a paper towel, and then one by one dip them in the flour, egg and then breadcrumbs, and place on a baking sheet. Check that the fish is cooked to your liking by testing with a fork to see if it flakes easily.
The fish strips shouldn’t be touching, so cook them in two batches if needed. Dab the fish with absorbent kitchen towel to get rid of any excess moisture.
If the fish is too wet, it can steam, meaning that your breadcrumb coating could end up soggy rather than crispy. This means that the temperature and air flows will be at the right level when you cook the fish.
You can reheat the fish for serving in a PRE heated air fryer for around 3 to 4 minutes and it will stay wonderfully crispy. You can still use frozen fish, just make sure to let it thaw in the fridge overnight and be sure to remove as much excess water as you can.
I love that this airfryerfish comes out so wonderfully crispy without the need for deep-frying. I used to live in a seaside town and nothing gives me more childhood memories than fish and chips.
This hot dish consists of battered fried fish with golden chips on the side. It’s rarely thought of as a healthy meal because it’s often deep-fried in oil.
The best thing is you don’t have to worry about those extra calories and fat that you would get from a deep fryer. An air fryer will cook your fish and chips like they had been crisp into golden perfection in a deep fryer, minus the extra oil and calories.
If you don’t have an air fryer yet, I recommend that you get one so you’ll feel less guilty when eating fried food. You’ll need a spatula to turn the fish to cook the other side.
There are many brands of frozen breaded fish fillets you can choose on the market today. Cod is the most popular choice because of its mild flavor and soft texture.
This white fish is perfect if you want to enjoy the big difference between the crispy outer shell and the tender meat inside. This type of fish has a mild sweetness that goes well with the creamy flavor of the batter.
To make chips from scratch, you’ll need potatoes. If you like to save time in making the chips from scratch, you can buy frozen french fries in your nearest grocery store.
My favorite is the Andy Camp’s BBQ Flavored Fries because they turn out very crispy from the air fryer. For the Keto diet (option 4), you’ll need something low with carbohydrates.
However, you may add a little of cooking oil to the food before frying to give an extra crunch. I use Old Bay Seasoning because it already contains all the best spices and herbs to help the fish reach its full flavor potential.
If you want to make your own seasoning mix, combine celery salt with paprika, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, and ginger. It also helps the flesh to become tender as it serves as a good protective coating of the fish.
The yolk will soften the gluten strands of the flour, providing more delicate crispiness to the crust. The proteins of the egg keep your fish tender and prevent the batter to absorb oil.
The bread crumbs will give that nice crunch to the fish fillet. For Option 4 (Veto), Pork Pinko is a good substitute for bread crumbs.
You’ll need three bowls to contain the three different batter mixtures for your fish. A whisk will help mix the dry and liquid ingredients properly.
Open the bag of oven chips and put them in the air fryer basket. Next, open your bag of frozen breaded fish and gently put them over the chips.
Shake the chips and return the fish to cook the other side for another eight minutes. Gather two pieces of fish fillets, two tablespoons of flour, one egg, 1/2 cup of bread crumbs, Old Bay Seasoning, frozen french fries or two potatoes, and salt and pepper to taste.
Option 3: Hairdryer Beer Battered Fish And Chips If you want to eat fish and chips pub-style, then you can try this recipe which includes beer in the batter. The beer will give the fish a soft yet unique crunchy texture.
To make two servings, prepare two fish fillets, one cup all-purpose flour, 6 ounces of light beer, Old Bay Seasoning, potatoes or french fries, salt, and pepper. In a bowl, mix the flour, Old Bay Seasoning, beer, and salt.
Place the beer-battered fish in the air fryer, along with the frozen french fries or potato wedges. Serve the fish and chips warm with lemon or tartar sauce.
For the chips, you need one medium zucchini and salt and pepper to taste. Dip the fish in the almond flour then into the beaten egg and the Pork Pinko mixture.
Place the breaded fish and the zucchini slices into the air fryer basket. Since you’ll not be using a lot of oil, you need to keep the fish well-seasoned to add flavor.
Use a spatula to make sure that the fish stays intact when you remove it from the basket. No matter how you want to cook it, the crispiness and tender meat inside are still glory to behold.
