Air Fryer Fish is a delicious way of cooking fish that is healthier as well because you can cook it oil free or just with minimal oil.

We have been eating lots of pork lately and I want to have fish for Christmas dinner for some variety and healthier option.

We love tuna belly because it is one of our favorite parts of tuna fish since it is moist and tender when cooked and really delicious aside from tuna panga and buntot ( tuna jaw and tail).

How to Cook Air Fryer Fish

What sauce Goes well with this Recipe

We often love it dipped in soy sauce with sinamak or flavored vinegar with hot chilli peppers and a juice of freshly squeezed calamansi with a bit of sugar.

Absolutely! You can store it for up to 2 days in the fridge.  You just reheat it by putting in the microwave oven or steaming and it is still deliciously good.

Notes

  1. Cooking time depends on the thickness of the tuna belly and the kind of your air fryer.  You may check it from time to time in order not to overcook it.
  2. Make sure the size of your tuna belly can be accommodated in the air fryer. You may cut it if too big and cook in batches.
  3. You can omit the olive oil if you want it oil-free.
