Yes you can cook seafood in the air fryer. The air fryer cooks fish and shell fish with so much ease. You’ll get tender flakey fish and juicy shrimp in less time than you would in the oven.
You also don’t need to stand over the stove to make pan fried or deep fried fish. If you have an air fryer, don’t be scared to use it for seafood! It’s absolutely the best.
You can know when fish is done by using a digital thermometer or by color or texture if the fish.
If using a thermometer, the internal temperature should be at least 145°F / 63°C.
If going by texture and color, cooked fish is firm, and flakes easily with a fork with a paler color than when fresh.
The length of time to cook seafood in the air fryer depends on what kind of seafood you are cooking and other factors such as size of the seafood, the temperature at which it is cooked, if the air fryer was preheated or not, the brand of air fryer used and the thickness of the fish (fillets or whole fish).
