Before we dive into this air fryer reheat guide, I have something even better than reheating fish in the air fryer for you to check out first.

Reheat Fried Fish

Behind the scenes of running a food blog means that there can be a LOT of leftovers. We will do a batch of recipe testing and then I will see it piling up and piling up in the fridge.

I remember when we were last recording videos for our You Tube channel having a kitchen worktop that was just full of food we had made, but there was way too much for us to possibly eat.

What I love about this is that we will often have enough leftover food in the fridge to last us for several days. Then when we are hungry we can reheat the food in the air fryer.

I remember when we made our air fryer frozen fish and chips, we had loads of the fish fillets left over.

I thought rather than just eat them, that we could share with you the process of how to reheat fried fish in the air fryer. Then when you have some fried fish leftovers, you know that you can load it into the air fryer and follow this method.

Can You Reheat Fish?

Yes you can. But consider that compared to meat, fish has a short cook time such as our air fryer tuna steak or our air fryer shrimp fajitas. Therefore, you need to be rather delicate when reheating fish and make sure you don’t carry on cooking.

Can You Reheat Fish In Air Fryer?

Yes you can and whenever I am reheating fish I recommend that you do so in the air fryer. That is because it stops you overcooking your fish and also helps you get a crispy coating again on your fish.

As there is nothing worse than breaded or battered fish with a soggy coating.

Best Way To Reheat Fish?

The best way to reheat fish is by allowing it to fully cool first. I recommend after the fish has been cooked that you put your reheat plan of action into place.

Allow it to cool in the fridge and then place it in an airtight container.

Then the next day (don’t leave it longer than this) place it in the air fryer basket, spray it with extra virgin olive oil and then air fry it.

For the best results avoid a preheat as it will cook it too fast.

How To Reheat Fried Fish?

how to reheat fried fish in air fryer step by step

If you want to reheat fish in the air fryer then this is how it’s done:

  1. Load leftover fish into the air fryer basket.
  2. Spray with extra virgin olive oil.
  3. Cook on a medium heat in the air fryer.
  4. Serve.

You can also do more than your classic battered fish fillets in the air fryer. I also love to reheat fish sticks in the air fryer too. They come out so crispy and are perfect for making one of our fish sticks sandwiches. If you have not tried them, then see our air fryer frozen fish sticks for a sandwich idea.

You can also follow this exact air fryer reheat recipe today if using either battered or breaded fish, because both of them taste the same and have the same cook time and temperature.

How Long To Reheat Fish In Air Fryer?

The air fryer cook time for reheating fried fish is much faster than you would think. In fact, our battered fish took JUST 6 minutes. You will need to turn your fish fillets otherwise you will have one side that is crispy and another that is soggy.

What Temp To Reheat Fish In Air Fryer?

The ideal temperature for reheating fish in the air fryer is a dual temperature. Starting at 160c/320f to heat through your fish fillets. Then the temperature is increased to 180c/360f to get your fish crispy again.

Notes

Turning. I recommend turning your fish fillets otherwise they can end up sticking to the air fryer basket or being crispy on one side and soggy on the other.
Oil. I recommend spraying with extra virgin olive oil or your fish will not get as crispy as it reheats back through.
