Air Fryer Fish Sticks

by | Oct 5, 2020 | Recipes

October is National Seafood Month and if you’ve been following us for awhile, you know that on the Mediterranean diet, seafood is a main component. We recommend getting in two servings of fish per week. Fish is high in omega-3 fatty acids which help reduce inflammation and promote brain and heart health.

These fish sticks are so easy to make in the air fryer, making them a perfect weeknight meal. If your children dislike fish, try serving this kid-friendly recipe to change their minds!
