Fish cakes (fishcakes or patty) make a great appetizer or snack for everyone. Try it with any sauce of your choice and serve with fries, burger, peas, or broccoli.
Air-frying frozen fish cake is a healthy and tasty way to enjoy your favourite seafood dish.
It is a healthier alternative to traditional deep-fried fishcake. There is no need to worry about grease or excess oil.
The size and thickness of the fish cakes will determine how long to cook them. I am using my instant pot vortex air fryer, 5.7L and can fit up to 8 fish cakes in the basket. You can fit as many as you like in your air fryer but try not to overload or stack the fish to allow even cooking.
