How to cook sea bream using the hot air fryer

  1. Preheat the air fryer to 200 degrees Celsius (390 degrees Fahrenheit) for a few minutes.
  2. We wash the sea bream fillets under cold water and dry them with absorbent paper.
  3. In a separate container, mix the olive oil, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, sweet paprika and dried thyme. If we don't have garlic powder we can use 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and finely chopped.
  4. Spread this seasoning mixture on both sides of the sea bream fillets, making sure to cover them completely.
  5. Place the seasoned sea bream fillets in the air fryer basket, making sure they are not too tight.
  6. Cook the fillets in the preheated air fryer at 390 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius) for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp on the outside.
  7. Once cooked, carefully remove the sea bream fillets from the air fryer as they will be very hot.
  8. We serve the sea bream on a plate and decorate it with lemon slices to enhance the flavor.

If you want an extra touch of flavor, you can add other spices such as cumin, oregano or parsley to the seasoning of the fillets.

Make sure not to overcrowd the air fryer basket to allow for proper air circulation for even cooking.

Adjust the cooking time according to the thickness of the sea bream fillets to prevent them from drying out. If your fillets are thicker, you may need to increase the cooking time slightly.

I started cosmorecipes in 2020 during the time we were cooped up at home. Having so much free time I spent a lot of time in the kitchen trying different dishes. So I decided to mix cooking with my other great passion: web programming. That's why I decided to open this blog where I post the different recipes that I'm cooking.
