  • 3 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 teaspoons mustard seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 sole fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 2 teaspoons butter, melted
  • Cooking spray


  1. Preheat air fryer to 375°. Combine mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons cheese, mustard seed and pepper; spread over tops of fillets.
  2. In batches, place fish in a single layer on greased tray in air-fryer basket. Cook until fish flakes easily with a fork, 3-5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine bread crumbs, onion, ground mustard and remaining 1 tablespoon cheese; stir in butter. Spoon over fillets, patting gently to adhere; spritz topping with cooking spray. Cook until golden brown, 2-3 minutes longer. If desired, sprinkle with additional green onions.
