How To Make Air Fryer Tilapia

Savor a buttery & flaky dish in this healthier air fryer tilapia that's drizzled with cheese & Italian seasoning, for a quick 15-minute dish.

Prep: 3 mins
Cook: 8 mins
Total: 11 mins


  • 6 oz tilapia fillet
  • kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
  • tsp garlic powder
  • spray oil
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp parmesan
  • 1 tsp dried Italian seasoning
  • lemon wedge, optional


  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F.

  2. While the air fryer is preheating, season tilapia on both sides well with kosher salt, black pepper and garlic powder.
  3. Once preheated, lightly spray the air fryer basket. Also, spray both sides of the fish filet lightly.

  4. Place tilapia into the air fryer and cook for 4 minutes and flip, cooking for another 3 to 4 minutes. The fish is done when it registers about 145 degrees F internally and is easily flaked by a fork at the thickest part.

  5. While the fish is cooking, mix together melted butter, parmesan, Italian seasoning, and 1 pinch of salt in a small bowl.

  6. Remove fish carefully with a spatula. Drizzle butter mixture over fish and finish with fresh lemon juice if desired. Enjoy immediately.
