Cod Fish In Air Fryer – No Breading
I personally prefer non-breaded fish. Every now and then the fried breaded fish dipped in tartar sauce is great. But, the fresh flavor of simply cooked cod fish with lemon and dill is what I like. Added bonus, this recipe is so much quicker and easier than breaded fish as well as being low carb, Keto friendly.
Like most other proteins, fish cooked in an air fryer is so juicy and flaky. No preheating an oven or standing over an oil splattering pan. Just put your fish in the air fryer and dinner is served in 10-15 minutes.
Air Fryer Oven vs Air Fryer
Cooking with a traditional (usually egg shaped) air fryer is slightly differently than an Air Fryer Oven.
Air Fryer Ovens are the the extra large models that allow much more space for cooking. This is great if you are preparing food for 4+ people. These ovens can also offer additional cooking methods such as broiling, toasting, baking and even dehydrating. With the extra space and functions comes some cons. The food does not get quite as crisp on the outside. The cook time typically takes a few minutes longer as well. Air fryer ovens also cost double or more than regular air fryers.
Air Fryers on the other hand tend to be smaller. I recommend buying a 5 quart or larger air fryer unless you are only preparing food for yourself. Traditional air fryers take less time to cook the food and achieve an amazing crispiness. The cons being the limited space and I find them to be aggravating to clean.
Both are great depending on your needs and priorities.
This is the larger air fryer oven I have used: Nuwave 10 quart Air Fryer
This is the smaller air fryer that I use: COSORI Air Fryer
