  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x



Ingredients for fish

  • pounds Wild Alaska Pollock*, cut into 4 pieces about 3/4-inch thick
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 6 ounces light beer
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • Olive oil spray or mister
  • 1 lemon, sliced in 4 wedges
  • Prepared tartar sauce and/or coleslaw (optional)

Ingredients for chips

  • 1 large sweet potato, washed and scrubbed (can leave peel on)
  • 1 large potato, washed and scrubbed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt (or ½ teaspoon kosher salt and ½ teaspoon garlic powder)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Olive oil spray or mister


  1. Spray air fryer basket, place back in fryer and preheat to 400 F for 5 minutes. In a mixing bowl, make beer batter by mixing ½ cup flour, corn starch, baking soda, egg and beer; cover and place in refrigerator for 10 minutes.
  2. Pat pollock with paper towel, set on plate and set aside.
  3. While air fryer is preheating, cut potatoes in half lengthwise, then halve lengthwise again and cut into strips or thin wedges. Place in a medium bowl and toss with olive oil, garlic salt (or salt and garlic powder) and paprika. Place potatoes in air fryer basket, spray lightly with oil, cook for 5 minutes, then take out basket, flip and cook for an additional 7 minutes or until desired doneness. Put on baking sheet and keep warm in toaster or oven while cooking fish.
  4. While chips are cooking, prepare and batter fish. Remove beer batter from refrigerator. In another mixing bowl, mix remaining 1 cup flour, garlic and onion powder, Old Bay and paprika. Dip each fish piece into beer batter and cover, then dredge in flour mixture and coat well.
  5. Place fish in air fryer basket and spray fish generously with oil so there are no dry flour spots. Cook for 12 minutes or until cooked through and crispy. Serve with sweet potato chips, lemon wedge and prepared tartar sauce or coleslaw, if desired.
