Air Fryer Fish & Chips

Welcome to my Air Fryer fish and chips.

I grew up in a small seaside town in the North of England that was full to bursting with fish and chip shops. It wasn’t unheard of to see four of them in a row next to each other. And come summer because all the holiday makers were visiting and wanted fish and chips there wouldn’t be a fish and chip shop that wasn’t super busy.

I remember one of the ones that I worked at. The fish and chips were really bad but because they had an excellent location they were never short of customers.

But for a cheap lunch you couldn’t beat fish and chips and when my American relatives visit it is this and the beer that they head for.

Kyle hasn’t experienced any fish and chips so one day we will take him back to the town where Dominic & I met and grew up and treat him to some.

In the meantime we made him the fish and chips recipe below and it has kept him satisfied for the meantime.

Recipe Notes
The point of this recipe is a healthy take on fish and chips in the Air Fryer. If you prefer you can use a batter to make it but this recipe is very tasty and there really is no need for batter.
