  • Prep Time 15 mins

  • Total Time 25 mins 


  • 4 Cod Fillets (Thawed and pat dry if previously frozen)
  • 1 Large Egg
  • ½ Cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Panko Bread Crumbs
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • ½ Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper (Optional)
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • ½ Teaspoon Fresh Ground Black Pepper
  • Olive oil for Air Fryer
  • Fresh Parsley for Serving


  • Create a station for coating Cod Fillets.
  • Place Cod on a paper towel-lined plate. Line up 3 large shallow bowls on the workstation. In the first bowl place, a beaten large egg. In the second bowl, add the all-purpose flour, and in the third bowl, place the panko bread crumbs mixed with the paprika, cayenne, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Preheat Air Fryer to 350 degrees F, air fryer setting.
  • Begin by dipping a cod fillet in egg, then flour, then panko mixture. Transfer to a clean plate. Continue until all fillets are prepared.
  • When the Air Fryer is hot, spray or brush the tray with olive oil and place the cod filets in a single layer on the tray.
  • Spray the tops of the cod with more olive oil. Cook the fish at 350 degrees F, air fryer setting, for 5 minutes, flip and cook for 5 more minutes. The coating should be golden, and the fish should flake easily.
