    Main Dish

  • Cusine



4 pieces of cod, halibut, or other thick white fish fillets

2 eggs, well beaten

1 cup almond flour

2 tsp. Fish Rub

1/4 tsp. freshly-ground black pepper

Tartar Sauce for serving


Thaw the cod, halibut, or other thick white fish pieces overnight in the fridge if frozen. Then drain fish well and pat dry with paper towels. Cut fish crosswise into short strips about 1 inch wide. We got 16 strips from four fish fillets, but if your Air Fryer is a smaller model you might not be able to cook that much at once. Prepare two bowls, one with beaten eggs and the other with a mixture of the almond flour , Fish Rub, and a little freshly-ground black pepper. Set Air Fryer to 390F/200 C. Preheat the air fryer if needed. We sprayed the Air Fryer basket with non-stick spray. When you're ready to cook, dip each piece of fish first into the egg and then into the almond flour mixture, sprinkling almond flour over with your fingers so the fish is lightly coated. Lay the fish sticks in the Air Fryer basket as you coat them. Cook the fish 10-12 minutes, starting to check after about 7-8 minutes minutes to see if you need to rotate the fish. At 10 minutes check to see if you need a bit more time. Fish is done when it feels firm to the touch and is lightly browned on the outside. Serve hot, with Tartar Sauce or your favorite dipping sauce. If this makes more than you'll eat at one time you can refrigerate the fish and reheat in the Air Fryer. You can use the ingredients from this recipe and the cooking instructions for Whole Wheat Panko and Almond Crusted Oven-Baked Fish Sticks to cook this in the oven without an Air Fryer. .
