Why is it Called Beer Battered?
The obvious reason is that the batter has beer in it! In fact, most beer batter has as much beer in it as flour. This adds a lovely taste to the fish. But more importantly, also adds carbon dioxide, foaming agents, and alcohol to the batter, which creates a super light and crunchy delicious breading.
How to Air Fry Frozen Fish Fillets
It is so easy to make air fried frozen fish! All you need is an air fryer and a package of your favorite frozen fish fillets. I used the Gorton’s brand beer battered fillets, but you can use any brand of breaded frozen fish fillets you like!
To cook, open the package of frozen fish and place the fillets flat inside the air fryer basket. Make sure not to crowd the air fryer to ensure even cooking and the crispiest fish with the yummiest texture.
Now, just put the basket into the air fryer and cook at 390 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes. And be sure to cook the fish at the right temperature for the correct amount of time for the best results.
Then when the filets are done cooking, remove them from the air fryer and place them on your serving plate of choice to enjoy!
