Why do we love to air fry frozen fish sticks?
I have one word for air frying frozen fish stick, i.e., CONVENIENT.
Frozen fish sticks are super delicious, but above all, they are convenient.
Here is why we love frying frozen fish sticks in an air fryer:
- No need to indulge yourself in the labor of thawing it, heating oil in the frying pan, and deep-frying it.
- Not to forget oil and calories. Air fryer offers a healthy substitute.
- It is super easy to make. You just have to place the frozen fish sticks in the air basket. Put the air basket in a preheated air fryer and set the timer. The only thing you don’t want to forget is flipping the sticks halfway into the cook.
- Thanks to the air fryer, you can enjoy crispy and perfectly cooked fish sticks within minutes.
- You can store the air-fried fish sticks in an air-tight container for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.
