Ingredients
 

Tartar Sauce

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 200°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Cut your fish fillets lengthwise into 3/4-inch-wide strips, then cut them crosswise into 3-inch lengths. You should have approximately 20 fingers of fish.
  • Spread some cornstarch onto a sheet of wax paper.
  • Beat an egg in a small bowl.
  • On a separate sheet of wax paper, mix together some cornmeal, salt, and cayenne.
  • Dredge your fish fingers in the cornstarch, tapping off any excess, and then dip them into the beaten egg, allowing any excess to drip off.
  • Coat your fish with the cornmeal mixture, pressing it lightly to ensure it adheres, and then arrange them on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Lightly spray the fish fingers with nonstick spray.
  • Depending on your air fryer's settings, preheat a 6- to 8-quart air fryer to either 390°F or 400°F for 3 minutes.
  • Spray the air fryer basket with nonstick spray and add 10 fish fingers to the basket.
  • Air fry the fish for 5 minutes and then turn them over.
  • Air fry the fish fingers for an additional 3 minutes, or until they are golden brown and firm to the touch.
  • Transfer the fish to a wire rack and keep them warm in your preheated oven.
  • Air fry the remaining 10 fish fingers.

For the Tarter Sauce:

  • Meanwhile, to make your tartar sauce, combine all of the tartar sauce ingredients in a serving bowl until they are well mixed. Thin the sauce with water if needed. This recipe should yield approximately 3/4 cup of tartar sauce.
