Frequently Asked Questions

What is the air fryer cooking time for fish?

You can cook fish at 350 degrees in a hot air fryer for anywhere between 6 to 10 minutes depending on the size and thickness of the fish.

This easy air fryer fish recipe only takes 8 minutes to fully cook the fish, spinach and tomatoes! This gives you a complete healthy meal in under 10 minutes!

What type of fish can you cook in the air fryer?

You can cook almost any fish you choose! We’ve cooked tilapia, cod, pollock, haddock, salmon and shrimp too! The cook time will need to be adjusted based on the size of the fish.

At what temp is fish done?

Any fish with fins is usually cooked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees.

Or you cook the fish until flesh is opaque and separates easily with a fork is another way to test it if you don’t have a thermometer.

Can you cook the fish in the air fryer without a container?

Yes, you can. The only reason why we use a container in this recipe is to be able to drizzle olive oil over the spinach and tomatoes while it’s cooking. If not, the vegetables would dry out.

Can you use a regular pan in the air fryer instead of a disposable aluminum pan?

Yes! You can! I found a small cake pan that fits in the air fryer works just as well.

Easy to make white fish with spinach and tomatoes!

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Fish (choose your favorite!)
  • Spinach
  • Tomatoes
  • Old Bay Seasoning
  • Olive oil
  • Feta Cheese crumbles (or Bleu Cheese crumbles if you prefer)

We use fresh ingredients in this recipe. Fresh spinach and fresh tomatoes!

I buy my fresh spinach and tomatoes in bulk at Costco each month.

Layer the spinach first by filling it all the way up and really packing it in. The spinach will shrink so add more than you think you will need. Then layer the fresh fish and tomatoes next just like this:

Next, drizzle the fish and veggies with olive oil or avocado oil if you prefer.

Lastly, you will sprinkle salt and Old Bay seasoning on the fish before adding the cheese crumbles on top. Season it as little or as much as you want.

How to Make/Prepare Fish in the Air Fryer

Step 1 – Defrost the fish if needed before you start.

Make sure your fish is defrosted before you start.

You can defrost it quickly over cool water or place the frozen fillet in the refrigerator a few hours before you plan to make it so it’s fully defrosted before you start.

Step 2 – Assemble the ingredients

Layer a large amount of spinach first. Next, layer the fish fillet or multiple fillets if you are making two servings.

Then add the defrosted fish on top of the spinach.

Layer tomatoes around the fish fillets.

Drizzle olive oil over the spinach, tomatoes and the fish.

Sprinkle Old Bay seasoning and salt directly on the fish.

Use your favorite fish seasonings. I prefer Old Bay myself!
I always use pink Himalayan salt on almost everything!

Top the fish with feta cheese crumbles or Bleu cheese crumbles if you prefer.

This is what it looks like right before baking it in the air fryer.

Step 3 –Cook the fish for about 8 to 9 minutes in the air fryer

Cook the fish in the air fryer for about 8 to 9 minutes or until the fish is flaky (testing it with a fork) or reading an internal temperature of 145 degrees.
