AIR FRYER HEALTHY WHITE FISH WITH GARLIC & LEMON
This fish recipe can be used in so many ways. You can cook any flat white fish that you like and use your favorite spices. Cooking a thicker fish such as cod or halibut will require a little more time. You can also find a crispy-baked version on our website. Search for "seafood" to find it. Perforated parchment/baking papers made for air-frying are great to avoid sticking to the fish and tearing. This recipe has lots of information about these papers.
12 ounces (340 g) tilapia filets, or other white fish (2 filets-6 ounces each)
1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) lemon pepper seasoning
1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) onion powder, optional
kosher salt or sea salt, to taste
fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
fresh chopped parsley
- For 5 minutes, pre-heat the Air Fryer to 360degF. Pat dry the filets of fish. Spray the fish filets with olive oil spray. Season them with garlic powder, lemon pepper, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Repeat for both sides
- Place perforated baking paper for air fryers inside the base. Spray the paper lightly with oil. Spray enough olive oil at the bottom of the basket to ensure fish doesn't stick if you don't use a liner. Place the fish on top. Place a few lemon wedges near the fish.
- Air fry at 360°F for 6-12 minutes or until fish is easily flaked with a knife. The thickness and temperature of the filets as well as individual preferences will affect the timing. Serve warm with toasted lemon wedges and sprinkle with chopped parsley. If necessary, season the dish with salt and pepper.
