    • Hello Shela, we are not sure how it will turn out in an air fryer, we have only just purchased one ourselves but may give this recipe a try in it.

  1. I will DEFINITELY make this again! I did use my counter deep fryer to cook it. It was crispy and crunchy, just the way my family likes it. It wasn’t greasy at all. Only one member is doing keto, but we all agreed this was a recipe keeper for everyone.

  2. So delicious! Next time I may use 1/2 a lemon as my hubby is not a huge fan of lemon. That being said he complimented me 3 times on the dinner. I served with roasted cauliflower, salad for me and 1/2 baked sweet potato for him. Yum. The fish was so crispy and tasty.

  3. Delicious! I altered recipe a bit. Used some garlic as I like garlic. Added about a 3rd cup of parm cheese. I did pan fry. It was delicious! Thank you

  4. I just made this. It was very good. I substituted a little lemon pepper instead of lemon zest and fried in the pan. It turned out yummy.

  5. omg! i added the oil to my air-fryer (wondered why i had to do this) – you do NOT specify in your directions. what a disaster!

    NOT A RECOMMENDED AIR-FRYER RECIPE.

    • Hi A,

      The recipe clearly states to use a deep fryer.

      I would recommend thoroughly reading the directions of a recipe before beginning to avoid issues like this in the future.

    • Hi Carol,

      I haven’t tried it in an air fryer, but I don’t see any reason as to why it wouldn’t work. Please let me know how it goes if you try it 🙂
