  • 1 package frozen fish sticks


  • Remove the number of fish sticks you’d like to cook from the packaging.
  • Put the sticks (in a single layer) into your air fryer basket or air fryer tray. You do not need to oil the basket/tray.

  • Cook the sticks at 400F/204C for a total of 8 minutes. At the 4 minute mark flip and let them finish cooking. When the cooking time is complete, check one of the sticks to make sure they are hot throughout.

  • No need to thaw your fish sticks. You can air fry frozen fish sticks. Just toss them into your air fryer basket/tray and start to cook!
  • Hot! Hot! These fish sticks heat up quickly and they hold the heat. So be extremely careful when you take them out of the air fryer basket AND when you take that first bite!
  • Do I need to preheat my air fryer? Each air fryer runs a bit differently and each model comes with its own instructions. It’s kinda of 50/50 on whether you should or not. I personally do not preheat my air fryers. I would refer to your air fryer manual.
  • Do I need to add spray oil to the sticks when I put them in the air fryer? Nope! The sticks are good to go, as is, into the air fryer!
  • Do the sticks need to be in a single layer in the air fryer? Typically, we recommend that all food be in a single layer when using your air fryer.
