Air-Fryer Fish Cake Recipe

Air-Fryer Fish Cake Recipe 

Typically deep-fried, these tasty air-fryer fish cakes get a little zip from sweet chili sauce and fresh cilantro. The squeeze of lime at the end brings everything together perfectly, so don’t skip it.

Is This Recipe Healthier than Other Fish Cake Recipes?

Unlike other fish cake recipes that tend to be fried, we use the air fryer for our fish cake recipe, which lowers the amount of fat in it. Using whole-wheat panko breadcrumbs also boosts the fiber content a bit compared to breadcrumbs made with white flour.

Does White Fish Have Omega-3s?

White fish is a great source of protein and is low in calories, fat and carbs. While certain types of white fish may have some omega-3 fatty acids, you’ll find those most abundantly in “fatty fish” like salmon, mackerel, sardines, herring and rainbow trout.
