Servings 2


  • 2 Alaska cod fillets
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp granulated garlic
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • parsley
  • fresh lemon wedge


  • Preheat the air fryer to 380 degrees.
  • Lay the cod fillets out on a sheet of parchment or on a plate. Pat dry.
  • Drizzle the cod with olive oil.
  • In a small bowl, combine the garlic, paprika, salt, and pepper and stir.
  • Sprinkle the seasoning mixture over the top of the cod.
  • Place the cod in the preheated air fryer.
  • Cook for 9-15 minutes (depending on the size of the fillets) or until the internal temp reaches 145 degrees.
  • Remove and serve on a bed of fresh, blanched green beans and topped with a sprinkle of parsley and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.


Very important - don't allow the cod to cook beyond 145 degrees as overcooking will make it rubbery.
