Air Fryer Potato Crusted Fish Filets
Potato Crusted Fish Filets using Air Fryer accomplishes quick and easy way to prepare fish filets with manual use of oil. Baking fish filets takes time and heating up oven and the kitchen. Using the Air Fryer to fry bake fish accomplishes quick and crunchy top crust with moist tender and delicious fish filets.
Choosing the right fish filets to Air Fry is all the preferred taste. If you are on a budget Pollock Fish Filets are very inexpensive about $4.00 a pound. That’s 4 servings of Fish at $1.00 is a great value. Cod Filets are around $7.00 to $8.00 a pound almost double the cost. Tilapia Filets are around $7.00 a pound again this depend on if you buy fresh or frozen. Remember sometimes what seems a good value could end up not being very good quality.
For this test I choose Pollock Filets surprising they tasted very good for price. The key to having good tasting fish is preseason filets. Just using simple good quality lemon pepper will do wonders. I use my own lemon pepper seasoning called Citrus Blast sprinkled on each filet of fish.
Encrusting the fish filets with mashed potatoes is next step. Potato mixture enriched with egg yolks and hint of nutmeg and dill. This keeps the a fish filets from over cooking and maintains it’s moisture.
A quick and easy way to make potato mixture is to use dry instant potato flakes, salted boiling water, dill weed, nutmeg and fortified with egg yolk. This sounds like a lot on ingredients to put into potato mixture, but it’s very important to build potato mixtures flavor profile.
Let the mixture cool and spread a even half inch coating of this mixture onto seasoned fish filets.
Fried Zucchini using an Air Fryer is a great way to have very crunchy fries. They also are lower in fat and have fewer carbohydrates. By using the Spiralizer to cut zucchini into long curls makes these wonderful fried zucchini so crunchy good. By using just a few spritz of vegetable spray, then Air Frying for 10 to 12 minutes, will come out super crunchy and golden in color. The secret is using Panko Breading to give the extra crisp and crunchy texture. Dipping these Fried Zucchini into some Ranch Dressing gives you a satisfying feeling, to those fried food urges without all that guilt.
Also try Air Fried Squash Fries the are also super crunchy on outside and sweet and creamy on inside. Yum!
