INGREDIENTS  

  • 3 – 8 Frozen Fish Fingers

INSTRUCTIONS 

  • Place the frozen fish fingers in the air fryer (single layer and spaced out). No need to oil or preheat.
  • Set the temperature to 200℃ or 400℉. Cook for 10 – 12 minutes, depending on how crispy you like them. I cooked mine for 12 as my fish fingers were longer in size than the average fish finger.

FAQS

  1. Do I need to preheat my air fryer before cooking fish fingers? If your air fryer has a preheat setting, it’s a good idea to preheat it for a few minutes to the recommended cooking temperature before adding your fish fingers otherwise there is no need to preheat.
  2. Can I cook fish fingers in the air fryer without using oil? Yes, one of the benefits of using an air fryer is that it requires little to no oil to achieve a crispy texture. Most frozen fish fingers are pre-cooked and already contain oil, so additional oil isn’t necessary. However, if you prefer an extra crispy finish, you can lightly spray them with a cooking oil before air frying.
  3. How can I prevent the fish fingers from sticking to the air fryer basket? To prevent sticking, you can lightly spray the air fryer basket with a cooking spray or use parchment paper liners with holes that are designed for air fryers. Ensure that there is enough space between the fish fingers for air to circulate, which will help them crisp up without sticking.
