  • 1 lemon

  • ½ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped

  • 1 cup gluten-free seasoned bread crumbs

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ¾ cup gluten-free all-purpose flour mix

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 ½ pound fresh haddock, skin off

  • olive oil cooking spray, or other cooking spray

  • ¼ cup mayonnaise

  • kosher salt

  • freshly ground black pepper


  1. Zest the lemon into a large shallow dish or bowl. Cut the lemon into wedges and set aside for serving.
  2. Add the chopped parsley, bread crumbs, garlic powder, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ tsp pepper to the bowl of lemon zest; stir to combine.
  3. Place the flour mix in a second shallow dish or bowl and season with a little salt and pepper. Beat the eggs in a third shallow dish or bowl.
  4. Preheat an air fryer to 400°F.
  5. Cut the fish into 1-inch wide finger strips. Add to the seasoned flour, turning coat and shaking off the excess. Add to the beaten egg, turning to coat; let the excess drip off. Add to the lemon-herb bread crumbs; turn to coat, gently pressing the crumbs into the fish to stick.
  6. Spray the basket with a little cooking spray. Arrange half the fish fingers in the basket, spraying their tops with a little cooking spray.
  7. Air-fry until golden brown and crisp, turning halfway, 10-12 minutes. Remove and keep warm under aluminum foil.
  8. Repeat steps 6 & 7 for the remaining fish fingers.
  9. To serve, wrap the fish fingers in sheets of parchment paper. Serve with lemon wedges and mayo on the side.
