How to Cook Air Fryer Frozen Fish Fillets (RAW)

We love fish fillets and learning how to cook raw fish fillets from frozen in the air fryer is super easy. They come out crispy and absolutely delicious! Frozen fish fillets are better air fried than a regular oven because the hot circulating air makes the fish fillets crispy without having to oil them. Add some tarter sauce and a few slices of lemon and voila! It’s perfect with the bright lemon juice and dip. And if you want to make it a meal, air fry some french fries after for a perfect fish and chips air fryer dinner! All time, temp and details are in the recipe box below.
