These air fryer fish tacos are our healthy version of Rubio’s fish tacos, which are some of THE BEST, beer-battered fish tacos there are. If you’ve spent any time in California and had good baja-style fish tacos, you probably know Rubio’s.
Ryan and I cooked this recipe together before we served it al fresco style on the patio on a cool, breezy Oklahoma evening. If possible, we both highly recommend making a double batch of these and sharing with friends. And, speaking of double batches, these tacos pair well with our Baked Tortilla Chips (which really isn’t saying much, because, honestly, what doesn’t?) so go ahead and make a double batch of those, too.
If you don’t own an air fryer yet, but you are looking for one, consider this Cuisinart one. It’s my favorite.

We originally tried to do a “wet batter” in the air fryer, but that didn’t work so well. Wet batter just doesn’t work so well in air fryers. So we went with a double dredge in flour with an egg/beer mixture between and it was fabulous.
