Air-Fryer Fish and Chips

Fish fillets cooked in the air fryer achieve the same level of crispiness as those deep-fried. The coating of cornflakes produces a pleasantly airy and crunchy outer layer, ensuring the fish remains moist and tender within.

  • 1 pound potatoes (about 2 medium)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2/3 cup crushed cornflakes
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 pound haddock or cod fillets
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Tartar sauce, optional


  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400°F. Peel and slice the potatoes lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick pieces; then cut these slices into 1/2-inch-thick sticks.
  2. In a large bowl, coat the potatoes with oil, pepper, and salt. Place the potatoes in a single layer on the tray in the air-fryer basket, working in batches if necessary; cook until they are just tender, which takes 5-10 minutes. Stir the potatoes to ensure even cooking; continue cooking until they are lightly browned and crispy, an additional 5-10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, mix flour and pepper in a shallow bowl. Whisk egg with water in another shallow bowl. In a third bowl, combine cornflakes with cheese and cayenne. Sprinkle salt over the fish. Coat each fillet with flour mixture on both sides, shaking off excess. Dip into the egg mixture, then into the cornflake mixture, pressing gently to help the coating adhere.
  4. Take the fries out of the basket and keep them warm. Arrange the fish in a single layer on the tray inside the air-fryer basket. Cook until the fish is lightly browned and just starting to flake easily with a fork, which usually takes 8-10 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking. Be careful not to overcook. Reinsert the fries into the basket to warm them up. Serve promptly. Optionally, provide tartar sauce on the side.
