Air Fried Haddock

Air Fried Haddock Recipe

Crispy, flaky, tender haddock can be yours in just 20 minutes! Covered in a delicious coating, air fried to golden perfection, Air Fried Haddock is the perfect healthy version of traditional fried fish.

Haddock, a North Atlantic species related to cod, has long been one of the most popular fish in northern Europe because of its clean, white flesh and mild flavor. Here at Sizzlefish, our Haddock is caught in the pristine, cold waters off the coast of Iceland.

Haddock is not only delicious, but it’s also a nutrition powerhouse. Haddock is thought of as one of the best to eat due to its high protein content, low calorie and low mercury content. Haddock also has twice the omega-3 levels than its relative cod fish. Nutritious and delicious, could we ask for more?

Have you tried the air fryer before? If not, we are sure this recipe will convince you to go out and get one! If not, don’t worry, we will help you with the oven baked version too. Back to the air fryer now and how perfectly it crisps up these beautifully sweet succulent haddock fillets. Why the air fryer? Well, it’s so easy! That and it makes a healthier version of fried fish. Now you don’t have to deal with heating up a lot of oil and then having to clean up all that oil afterwards. No tto say that is not fun sometimes, but there are times when we want the good stuff easier though. We have your attention now, don’t we? Now about the recipe for this Air Fried Haddock. We chose the traditional double dip method here to coat the fillets. Meaning, we dipped the fish in a little flour, then in whipped eggs and then coated them generously in a seasoned crushed corn flake crust. Yep, you read that right, crushed corn flakes. They make the most delicious coating on these haddock fillets. They are slightly sweet and give the crust the most perfect crunch! Not only that, but this double dip method really locks in the moisture so your fillets remain tender and juicy when they cook.

There are a few things you need to do to get that beautiful crust though. You need to make sure the haddock fillets are fully thawed in the refrigerator the night before. You also need to make sure you dry them well with paper towels. If they are still slightly frozen or if there is access moisture in the fillets, they will not completely crisp up the way you want them to. Another tip is to make sure you don’t overcrowd the fish in the air fryer. The air fryer works best if air can circulate around the food, so a little space will give you the perfect crunch on the sides of the fillets.
