Air-Fryer Fish Tacos Tips
Can you use other kinds of fish to make air-fryer fish tacos?
A mild whitefish like the tilapia in this recipe works best for fish tacos. Other options include snapper, mahi mahi, grouper, flounder, halibut or cod. Of course, if you have a local fresh fish you want to use, that’s great, too! If you have frozen filets
, fill a bowl with hot water, and place fish in a plastic resealable bag in the water until the fish has some elasticity.
What can you serve with air-fryer fish tacos?
This island mango slaw
is perfect side—or topper!—to these air-fryer fish tacos. You can also serve them with your favorite rice or grain, such as this Spanish rice

What internal temperature does fish need to be cooked to?
The USDA recommends
cooking fish to 145°F (62.8°C). Visually, the fish should be opaque and the flesh should flake easily. —Maggie Knoebel, Taste of Home Associate Recipe Editor/Tester
