Prep Time: 5 mins
Cook Time: 10 mins
Total Time: 15 mins
Servings: 4


  • 1 1/2 pounds cod fillets (or another white fish such as haddock, flounder, or sole)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

For Serving

  • Lemon slices
  • Fresh parsley


  1. Take the cod out of the package and pat it dry with paper towels. Cut it into pieces that fit in the air fryer basket.
  2. Mince the garlic and juice the lemon if using a fresh lemon.
  3. Place a piece of parchment paper in the bottom of the air fryer for easier cleanup. Place the pieces of cod on top, skin side down.
  4. Drizzle the fresh lemon juice and olive oil over the fillets. Sprinkle on the paprika, salt, black pepper, and minced garlic.
  5. Air fry the fish at 370°F for 8-10 minutes, until the fish is just done. Ensure the internal temperature has reached 145°F or that the cod flakes easily with a fork.
  6. Serve with lemon slices and sprinkle with fresh parsley.
