Crispy Air Fried Cod Recipe

Its early spring in the Midwest, which means its Fish Fry szn. Fish fries (frys?) are amazing, but we know that they aren’t exactly goal friendly. Hence this 20 minute baked (or air fried!) recipe that pairs amazingly with, say, a World Famous tartar sauce that’s dairy and mayo free. This Crispy Air Fried Cod recipe is a new Friday favorite!
