  • 1 pound cod cut into bite sized pieces
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • non-stick spray


  • Season the fish pieces lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Set up an assembly line with 3 bowls: flour in one shallow bowl, beaten eggs together in another bowl and the panko, salt, and granulated garlic in another bowl.
  • Dredge the pieces in the flour, then dip in eggs and press into bread crumbs.
  • Spray the air fryer rack and the fish with non-stick spray. Air fry at 400 degrees for 8 - 10 minutes. Turn halfway through and spray once more with non-stick spray.
  • If cooking in batches, place a cooling rack on top of a baking sheet and put cooked fish pieces on top. Place in a warm oven until all fish is cooked.


Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to cook the fish in batches. You want it to be in a single layer when cooking.
I keep the cooked in a warm oven while I'm cooking all the batches. Don't cover with aluminum foil as it tends to steam the outside so it won't be as crispy. Instead, I like to place a cooling rack on top of a baking sheet and put the cooked fish on that. It allows the air to circulate around the fish.
