Saving Leftover Fish Sticks:

If you have leftover fish sticks, save them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days.

Reheat in the air fryer for 2-3 minutes, or on a sheet pan in the oven. Either of these methods will help some of the crispiness return to the fish!

For the fish, I used cod. But, you can substitute cod for any flaky white fish! Tilapia or catfish would also be a great substitution.

  1. Rinse cod in ice cold water.
  2. Cut fish into sticks, about ¾ inch thick. If your fish filets are sized differently, you will have different lengths of fish sticks, but try your best to keep the thickness the same. 
  3. Coat fish sticks in Louisiana Fish Fry Products Air Fryer Fish Seasoned Coating Mix.
  4. Shake off excess coating and place in the air fryer basket in a single layer.
  5. Air fry at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-15 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking time, until golden brown.
