This air fryer fish fillet recipe is yet another awesome example of the power of the air fryer. Golden, crispy fish fillets cooked to perfection and ready in just twenty minutes. 



Air Fryer Fish:

  • 6 ( 2 pounds| 1 kg) fish fillets
  • 1 cup Panko or regular bread crumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun Creole seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Cooking spray 
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped

Air Fryer Green Beans:

  • 1 pound ( 500 grams) green beans
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • In a shallow bowl, combine the bread crumbs, Cajun creole seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper and salt.
  • In a separate shallow bowl, mix together the egg and lemon juice.
  • Dip each fish fillet in the egg mixture and dredge in bread crumbs. Spray with a cooking spray and transfer to your air fryer. 
  • Cook at 390°F (200°C) for 10-12 minutes. Flip the fish fillets halfway through the total cook time. Remove from the air fryer. Garnish with parsley.
  • Optionally, add the green beans, garlic to a medium bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. 
  • Place the green beans in the air fryer basket and cook for 7 minutes at 370°F | 180°C. Toss the basket after 4 minutes. Remove green beans and serve with air fried fish.
  • Enjoy!


Avoid overcrowding your air fryer basket. Crowded fillets won’t cook on the sides, they have worse heat dispersal, and don’t take on the beautiful golden-brown color that we all love about fried fish.

You may need to adjust your cooking time depending on the thickness of your fish fillets. Different types of fish might also require adjustment to your cooking time, as some varieties of fish have denser flesh than others. You can test the doneness of your fish fillet by taking a fork and seeing how easily the fillet flakes. Cooked fish will flake easily beneath the fork.
