Frozen fish sticks in the air fryer

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.
