How to Make Air Fryer Essentials: Easy/Peasy Cajun White Fish

Step-by-Step

  1. PREP/PREPARE
  2. This recipe required an air fryer, or you could substitute a convection oven.
  3. I prefer to use my own homemade Cajun/Creole spice mix; however, if I do not have any available, then my store-bought option would be Tony Chachere’s. Just remember that most commercial spice mixes are loaded with salt.

    Here is my version of a good Cajun spice mix, and you can decide how much salt to add:

  4. The actual cook time will be determined by the thickness of your filet. Mine was about 3/4-inch (1.9cm) in thickness and took 17 minutes.
  5. If you do a lot of air frying, an almost indispensable chef’s tool is a good oil mister.
  6. Gather your ingredients (mise en place).
  7. In a small bowl, combine the spice ingredients.
  8. Rub both sides of the fish with the hot sauce, then brush on the olive oil.
  9. Cover with the spice/breading mix.
  10. Lightly brush some oil on the basket of your air fryer (to prevent sticking), then add the filet. Set the temperature to 400 (205c) and cook for 10 minutes.
  11. Open the basket, lightly brush the top of the filet with some oil, and gently flip over. Close the air fryer and cook an additional 6 – 7 minutes.
  12. PLATE/PRESENT
  13. Serve with a great side, like rice, and some tartar sauce. Enjoy.
  14. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
