Fried fish can be done in under 30 minutes with this air-fried rendition of the classic.




Pat dry the fish thoroughly using a paper towel. Cut the fish into chunks approx. 1 inch (2.5 cm) thick. Pat dry again if necessary. In a large non-stick pan gently heat up the oil (do not let it burn). Add all the breadcrumbs and stir quickly to ensure they are evenly coated in the oil. Lower the heat and fry gently for about 6 minutes stirring all the time until golden. Transfer the breadcrumbs to a bowl and set aside to cool completely.


Preheat the oven to 475F/ 240 C/ gas mark 9. Season the fish pieces on both sides. Coat in the flour. In a shallow bowl beat together the egg with the mustard and lemon zest until smooth (using a fork). Dip each fish chunk in the egg mixture gently wiping excess egg on the side of the bowl. Coat in the crumb mixture lightly pressing in for even coverage.Lightly grease the rack so your cod nuggets do not stick to it. Arrange the pieces on top without touching one another and bake in the center of the oven for about 12 minutes. u can fry them in air fryer for 12-15 minute. Remove your baked fish nuggets from the oven and serve immediately.
