Air-Fried Fish Bowl

Air-Fried Fish Bowl


I love learning how to use my air-frier to make dinners simpler and quicker. This recipe serves two and is a time saver. We’ve had this yummy meal several times. Every time, it just gets better. There are three components to the delicious fish bowl:


Coconut Cauliflower Rice: You can use normal rice, but this cauliflower rice tastes so much like real rice that it’s hard to tell the difference.

Lime Cabbage Slaw: A combo of mixed veggies with red and white cabbage and a lime dressing.

Avocado Sauce: Yummy, creamy sauce to top off this unique dish

Guacamole: This recipe is one of my favorites, and I get many compliments from my guests. No tomatoes in this one!

Air-Fried Fish: Cod seems to hold together well in the air fryer, and monkfish and thick salmon also work well. If you don’t have an air fryer, fry in a saucepan with a bit of ghee or coconut oil.



Most people have their own fish seasoning (lemon, Mexican, blackened, etc.) and are welcome to use it when making the coating for their fish. I love Old Bay, but it’s not available in Germany. Here is an adaptation to Old Bay. Put the ingredients in a container, secure the lid, and shake it up!

1/2 Tsp paprika

1/4 tsp oregano

1/4 tsp onion powder

1/4 tsp garlic powder

Pinch of nutmeg

1/4 tsp Himalayan salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Don’t freak out at the list of things to do. Truly, all the ingredients for each component of this delicious meal are made in separate bowls. Prepping like this for the components below allows you to set the prepared bowls on the table, and everyone can create their own individual Air-Fried Fish Bowl. We use cod for this recipe, and it comes out perfect, so pick your fish, and let’s get started.
