For a quick dose of ridiculously crispy-yet-healthy seafood, use your air fryer to make homemade fish sticks with wild-caught white fish. We're big fans of making homemade fish sticks, since you get to decide exactly what's going into them: no hidden additives and nothing greasy. And it's not hard! From start to finish, this recipe won’t take you more than 15 minutes to make, so it’s perfect for an impromptu snack attack or for an easy weeknight meal.
The flaky texture of white fish like cod, wild Alaska pollock, or even lingcod (if it's in season!) is a nice textural match to the substantial crunch of panko breadcrumbs. All you need is a bit of egg to get the panko to stick to the fish, and some cooking spray or olive oil to ensure that the breadcrumbs are gloriously golden when you take them out of the air fryer. And don't forget to have plenty of your favorite sauce on the side! We've got some saucy recommendations here if you're looking for some inspo.
