add fish to the marinate

Let the fish sit in the marinade for 30 minutes covered with a lid. If you have time leave it overnight in the refrigerator.

Further, when you are ready to cook, grease your  Air Fryer  basket with oil. I grease mine by rubbing, brushing, or spraying, oil generously on the bottom grate. Also, make sure to grease with a lot of oil or else the fish will get stuck and break. Furthermore, follow your air fryer directions for preheating to 350°F for 5 minutes. Additionally, when it’s preheated, working in batches, place the fish in a single layer. Set the time and temperature (390°F for 10 minutes). Next, when done, drizzle some oil on the top of the fish and then flip the pieces of fish in the basket and repeat for another 7 minutes. And, repeat the process until you run out of fish.
