How to Air-Fry Battered Foods
Batters are one of the few deep fried foods that are a challenge to replicate in the air fryer. That’s not to say you can’t do it, however, and this recipe for beer battered fish shows you how. Batters are, by nature, wet and runny, and as a result they tend to run right off the food they are coating and right through the holes in the bottom of the air fryer basket. However, if you batter the food in a thick batter and then dredge in flour, you create a coating that will stay put when you air-fry and voilà… you have conquered the batter challenge! It won’t be exactly like the traditional deep-fried fish and chips you find in an English pub, but it’s delicious and carries a lot less guilt or remorse afterwards.
