We used the COSORI to air fry this (affiliate link, we get a fee), always check your food with a good kitchen thermometer.

Sablefish AKA black cod is a great fish to cook in the air fryer. The white fish has a high fat content which means it won’t dry out too much. I like to add the fish to the fryer with a little parchment paper underneath. See our guide here and always be safe using items like this in an air fryer. The paper prevents the fish from sticking to the fryer – which can be a pain with fish skin.

A thermometer is really handy when cooking fish. I usually cook for 12 minutes then test the temp, the thickness of your fillet might need a couple more minutes. The FDA recommends 145F for fish.

One of my favorite ways to finish the fish is with home made black bean sauce using some fermented black beans!
