  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup room temperature beer or water
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 12 oz cod filets, thawed
  • Cooking spray
  • Serving: Steak Fries, Lemon Wedges, Tartar Sauce


  1. Preheat the air fryer to 390 degrees F, air fryer setting. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup of the flour, the cornstarch, baking soda, beer or water, and egg until smooth. Set aside.

  2. In another medium-sized bowl, whisk together the remaining 1/2 cup of flour, the salt, black pepper, paprika, and garlic powder. Set aside.

  3. Place the cod, one piece at a time, into the batter. Let any excess batter drip off and place into the flour mixture. Coat it in the flour and press it in. Spray the air fryer basket well with cooking spray or use a piece of parchment paper. Place the fish into the basket, making sure that the fish is not touching each other. Spray generously with cooking spray.

  5. Plate, serve, and enjoy! Serve with steak fries, lemon wedges, and tartar sauce for dipping.
