You are going to love my Air Fryer Hushpuppies Recipe! They are so easy to make and delicious too!

Last year for Christmas my husband bought me an air fryer. Now, I know some women don’t like to get kitchen gadgets as gifts but I love ’em! I’m all about getting practical items I’ll actually use, so an air fryer was a great choice. I was immediately excited about my new kitchen gadget. Little did I know just how much I’d grow to love my air fryer.

You guys, as a busy mom of 5 kids, I find myself using my air fryer ALL THE TIME! I’m a stay at home, homeschooling mom, so that means every meal of the day, I’m in charge of fixing it. The air fryer makes food taste fried like my kids like, without the mess and extra calories that traditional frying adds. I use it to fix everything from air fryer whole chicken to air fryer donuts and everything in between!

We try to have fish two nights a week and one of our favorite side dishes for fish is hushpuppies. After some trial and error, I perfected this air fryer hushpuppies recipe and wanted to share it with you all today.

Of course, the best thing to pair this air fryer hushpuppies recipe with is Gorton’s Seafood’s Delicious Classics! We love all of Gorton’s Delicious Classics, and this time decided to pair the hushpuppies with Gorton’s Beer Battered Fillets. Gorton’s range of whole filets are made with wild-caught Alaska Pollock, flash-frozen at the peak of freshness to lock in full flavor & nutrition. They have no fillers, no preservatives, no artificial colors or flavors, no hydrogenated oils, and no antibiotics! It’s such an affordable way to make sure our whole family gets quality protein and Omega 3’s each week!

We love to cook our Gorton’s Whole Fillets in our air fryer too. I honestly want to get a second air fryer because we use the one we have so much and a second one would really come in handy. Typically I make the fish first and then just keep the fillets warm while I make the hushpuppies. By making the fish first, if my kids are REALLY hungry (you know how it goes moms!) I just let them have a fillet while they wait. I always make a few extra fillets for that reason because I know someone will devour them!

I hope you and your family enjoy my air fryer hushpuppies recipe!

This is another perfect recipe that I can make with the grandkids! We used to make these for their parents when they were young. Except for fast food, they never had the ones that their parents did. This would be perfect to make and eat together. We love Gorton’s Beer Battered Filets and their shrimp and fish sticks. This is pin worthy! Thank you for sharing! P.S, The children in the pictures are adorable 👍🏻👍🏻

It's been many years since I had hush puppies. I really want to make these after seeing your recipe. They came out beautiful in the air fryer. I use my air fryer way more than any kitchen gadget or even my oven.

I cut this recipe in half and they were very dry. They flavor was a little sweet for my liking, but with a few tweaks, I would try this again. It made about 10 hush puppies.
