How to Cook Frozen Fish Sticks in Air Fryer

Air fryers are the best option to cook frozen fish sticks, far better than oven and deep frying. Fish sticks have such an unavoidable taste, and also these are full of nutrients. These are best for health until we add loads of oil to cook them. While cooking the fish sticks in an air fryer does not require any oil, you can add one spoon if you want to or you like the oil but I will suggest not adding it even if you like. Health is the first priority.

This is a simple process. You just need to take care of some small things; know the optimum settings, and take some necessary precautions.

Preheating is not necessary for all foods but it is recommended for frozen fish sticks. Plug in your air fryer, fix the accessories, and then preheat it for 3 to 5 minutes.

Set the time and temperature:

To set the time and temperature you need to pay a little attention. Manual of many air fryers may have mentioned the time and temperature to cook frozen fish sticks but that might not be accurate always.  Because the thickness and size of frozen fish sticks vary from brand to brand. Set the time and temperature mentioned in the manual for the first round. If it is not mentioned, I tell you a rough estimate. Set the temperature up to 400F, and time for 7-8 minutes. Then flip the side after 8 minutes and cook it for 4 minutes. Check the quality of the first round, if it is up to the mark, repeat it for other rounds. And if you observe that fish sticks are not cooked as they should be, make the changes in time accordingly, temperature settings will remain the same. But change the time from in 2-3 mins up or down. There will be no major changes required anyway, only 2-3 minutes plus or minus from optimum settings will be enough.

Tips to cook crispy and perfectly cooked frozen sticks

You have learned the main procedure of cooking frozen fish sticks in an air fryer. But there are also some tips that can help you to cook more crispy and perfectly cooked fish sticks.

Do not overload the basket

If you want evenly cooked fish sticks, never overload the basket. Fish sticks should not be overlapping in the basket, it can affect the cooking quality. if you overcrowd the basket to save your time and to make less rounds; it is not time saving at all. Overcrowded fish sticks will take longer time and at the end you will get damaged or burnt outer layers and uneven cooked sticks.

Do not use oil

Air fryers don’t require oil to cook food, this is their main purpose. But some people even prefer to add 1 to 2 spoons of oil to frozen fish sticks even when they are air frying them. I will recommend not to do it, why should you risk your health only for little desire and trust me it does not affect the taste even, it’s all in your mind. People just think adding oil will make the food tender, but practically it does not make any difference but it just affects your health. Air fryers cook food in its natural oil content and finally when you eat that food, there is 75% to 95% less oil in food.

Recipe timing

Follow the manual of air fryer or the standard settings that I told you above in the article, to cook frozen fish sticks. These settings can vary 2-3 minutes depending on the size of fish sticks and air fryer. But remember; do not change the settings more than 2-3minutes.
