Guys, I did something new! I made tilapia in the air fryer! And okay, I get that like.. tilapia is controversial. It’s a white fish which is supposed to be good for us, but then if you spend too much time Googling tilapia you’ll find all sorts of things about how gross it really is. I’ll be honest: I don’t care a ton. This is probably the first time in three years I’ve even had tilapia, so I think for the occasional meal I’ll be okay. Plus, if you’re not a tilapia fan this will pretty much work with any kind of fish (I know for a fact because I’ve done it with salmon!)
Also – I literally use my air fryer every day. If you’ve been in the market for one, I highly recommend this one I found on Amazon.
