Air Fried Breaded Fish

I’ve tried a few approaches to breading fish fillets over the last few weeks, this one seems to be the best for the air fryer and has a nice crunch to it. Not as dark as a deep-fried fillet but much healthier and still very nice. This will be my preferred method from now on.


  • Basa Fillet (any white fish will be good)

  • ½ Cup Plain Flour

  • Black Pepper

  • ½ Cup Panko Breadcrumbs

  • ½ Lemon (to serve)

  • Egg

Cooking Instructions

  1. Beat the egg into a bowl

  2. Put the breadcrumbs and any seasoning into a second bowl

  3. Put the flour into a third bowl

  4. Pat the fish fillet dry with kitchen roll

  5. Dip into the flour first, then the egg and then finally the breadcrumbs to coat

  6. Place into the air fryer basket

  7. Cook at 200°C for around 10 to 12 minutes until the fish is cooked (flakes easily or use a thermometer)

  8. Serve with chips and fresh lemon juice

Tip: a little garlic powder or paprika can be added to the breadcrumbs to add flavour but not too much or you will overpower the flavour of the fish
