We’ve had the privilege of giving the Philips Airfryer a try, and it has single-handedly revolutionised the way we view ‘fatty’ foods. My personal favourite treat is sweet potato fries but the airfryed Fish and Chips are also right up there for me. Basically, the Philips Airfryer works by using Rapid Air technology to make tasty air-fried food without the fat. The fast-circulating hot air cooks food with up to 80% less fat than a traditional deep fryer. Personally, the thing I love most is that it’s completely fuss-free and so easy to clean once you’re done using it!
Airfryed Fish and Chips
200 g white fish filet (tilapia, cod, pollack)
30 g tortilla chips
300 g (red) potatoes
1 tbsp vegetable oil
½ tbsp lemon juice
- Preheat the AirFryer to 180°C.
- Cut the fish into four equal pieces and rub with lemon juice, salt and pepper. Let the fish rest for 5 minutes.
- Grind the tortilla chips very fine in the food processor and transfer the ground tortilla chips to a plate. Beat the egg in a deep dish.
- Dip the pieces of fish into the egg one by one and roll the pieces of fish through the ground tortilla chips so that they are completely covered.
- Scrub the potatoes clean and cut them lengthwise into thin strips. Soak the potato strips in water for at least 30 minutes. Drain them thoroughly and then pat them dry with kitchen paper. Coat them with oil in a boil.
- Insert the separator in the AirFryer basket. Position the potato strips on one side and the pieces of fish on the other.
- Slide the basket into the AirFryer. Set the timer to 12 minutes and fry the potatoes and the fish until they are crispy brown.
