As a kid, I loved fish sticks. Every time the Gorton Fish Stick commercial would come on, I would remind my mom to pick up some…and sometimes she even listened to me. Not often, but enough.
For a brief time, I was a pescetarian but that didn’t last long as I just didn’t like the smell of fish in the house. To combat this, I reduced the smell by cooking frozen fish sticks. Fish sticks obviously aren’t the highest quality fish, but the fish smell is greatly reduced, especially in the air fryer. For our purposes, fish sticks can be the standard stick o’ breaded fish, or a small battered and frozen filet. Because not all fish sticks are the same size, you will need to adjust your air fryer cooking time accordingly.
- 1 serving fish sticks single layer for better results
Preheat air fryer to 360° F | 176° C
Spray the air fryer basket with oil to prevent sticking.
Add a single layer of fish sticks to the oiled basket.
Air fry for 4 minutes at 360° F | 176° C, flip and air fry for an additional 4 minutes
Air fry for 6 minutes at 360° F | 176° C, flip and air fry for an additional 6 minutes
NOTE: Due to size differences, please look at your fish sticks from time to time to verify that they are not overcooking. Use a meat thermometer to make sure that your sticks are cooked to 165° F | 74° C or higher.
