Ingredients

For the potato wedges: (Chips)

  • 1lb russet potatoes, cut into wedges
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • A teaspoon of granulated garlic
  • A teaspoon of onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper

For the fried fish:

  • 2lbs haddock filets, cut into smaller portions
  • 10oz fish fry breading (I used Louisiana seasoned fish breading)
  • Cooking spray

How to Make Air Fryer Fish and Chips

For the potato wedges:

  1. After cutting the russet potatoes into wedges, soak in an ice water bath for at least 30 minutes. This will help to release some of the starches and make them crispier later on.
  2. Preheat the air fryer to 400℉. Drain the potato wedges and pat dry. In a medium-sized mixing bowl add the olive oil, smoked paprika, granulated garlic, onion powder, salt, and pepper, and whisk to combine. Add the potato wedges and toss until fully coated.
  3. Add the potato wedges to the air fryer basket and cook for 20 minutes, flipping halfway through. If necessary, cook the wedges in batches. Set Aside.

For the Fried Fish:

  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400℉.  Rinse the haddock portions in cold water and shake off any excess. In a baking dish, add the fish breading and coat each haddock portion. Gently press the fish down to ensure an even coating. 
  2. Coat inside of the air fryer basket with cooking spray, add 2-3 haddock portions and spray then with a little cooking spray. Cook for 10 minutes, flipping halfway through. Repeat the process for the rest of the fish.
  3. Serve with tartar sauce and malt vinegar. 

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • Be sure that the breading is pressed into each piece of fish so that it sticks. This gives each fish filet that nice crispy outside. 
  • You want to be sure all your pieces of fish are about the same size so they cook evenly in the air fryer. 
  • You can double this recipe. Just be sure to cook your fish in batches.
