Oven Baked Fried Fish

I love a good crispy, fried fish but not the fat and calories from frying. This oven baked fried fish recipe offers the best of both worlds.  You get the crispy “fried” texture of the breading with an oven baked cooking style. No oil used! I love this recipe and often pair it with Oven Baked Onion Rings (another favorite in my household).

I also recommend cooking this fish in either a convection oven or using an air fryer. I used my Cuisinart Convection Toaster Oven Air Fryer and the fish came out flaky with a crisp crust. I cannot recommend the Cuisinart enough, I absolutely love it!

Overall this is a quick and easy recipe to make. The “breading” doesn’t take that long at all. I throw this together for a quick dinner during the week and the family loves it!

  1. My first use of Cuisinart AirFryer. Instruction booklet says basket, pan, rack and tray are not dishwasher safe. Spent at least 20 minutes cleaning the basket with brush and soapy water. Have you tried putting in dishwasher? Thanks.

    1. Hi Brian,
      I have not put any of it in the dishwasher so yes, handwashing is needed. I try to use aluminum foil on the basket to minimize clean up, although it really depends on what I’m cooking in it.
