Air-fryer fish fingers

2 Min Read

Make the most of your air-fryer to make fish fingers. Served in a sandwich with lettuce and tartare sauce, you can’t beat a homemade fish finger sandwich


  • STEP 1

    Heat the air-fryer to 180C. Cut the fish into 3-4cm-thick lengths (the size of a classic fish finger) – you should be able to make around 6-8. Tip the beaten egg onto a plate or into a shallow bowl. Tip the panko breadcrumbs onto another plate or into a shallow bowl and season well.

  • STEP 2

    Roll the fish pieces in the egg, gently shake off any excess, then coat in the panko breadcrumbs. Transfer the coated fish to a plate and continue with the remaining pieces.

  • STEP 3

    Transfer the fish fingers to the air-fryer basket, keeping them in a single layer, then cook for 8-10 mins until cooked through and golden.

  • STEP 4

    To make a sandwich, butter two slices of bread, then spread a thick layer of the tartare sauce or ketchup over one piece. Lay 3-4 fish fingers on top, followed by a few lettuce leaves, then top with the second slice of bread.

Recipe tip

Add smoked paprika, grated parmesan, or some finely chopped parsley to the panko breadcrumbs, if you like.
