Easy Fried Fish Filets


1 pound white fish fillets (cod, halibut, or tilapia)

1 teaspoon fine sea salt, or to taste

1/2 teaspoon pepper, or to taste

1/8 teaspoon garlic, minced

1 teaspoon paprika

1 to 2 cups almond flour

1 egg, or more if needed

avacado oil cooking spray

Preheat your Air Fryer to 380 for 4 minutes.

If using frozen filets, make sure to thaw first.

Cut filets in half if needed.

Make sure they are even sized so they’ll cook evenly.

The thicker the fish, the longer it will take to cook.

Pat filets dry.

Lightly oil fish and then season with salt, pepper, garlic and paprika.

Put flor in a shallow bowl.

In another bowl, beat the eggs.

Dip the filets in the egg, shaking off excess egg.

Dredge the filets in your flour and press filets into the bowl so that they completely coat the filets.

Repeat this process for all fish pieces.

Line air fryer basket or tray with perforated parchment paper or perforated silicone mat.

(Use perforated parchment paper or mat, generously coat the air fryer basket with oil spray).

Lightly spray parchment paper with oil spray.

Lay coated fish in a single layer on the parchment (cook in batches if needed).

Generously spray all sides of the breaded filets with oil spray to coat any dry spots.

Air Fry at 380 for 8 to 14 minutes, depending on the size and thickness of your filets.

After 6 minutes, flip the filets.

Lightly spray any dry spots then continue cooking until they are crispy brown and the fish is cooked through.

Serve with your favorite dip: tartar sauce, mustard, aioli. Enjoy! Enjoy!
