Another Lent dish. This is lower in fat and calories than the traditional deep fried fish. The coating is still crunchy, but this is not as heavy. I used Old Bay and garlic powder to flavor the fish. This method does take a little longer than deep fried, but the end results are worth it. Add some tartar sauce and some chips and the Lenten obligation is fulfilled without the use of tuna helper. I hope you like it. (Note: I used Guinness which why the fish is darker than normal, use an IPA.)
1 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon black pepper

1 egg, beaten

Preheat oven to 400.
In pie pan 1, add 3/4 cup flour, Old Bay, garlic powder, and black pepper.
In pie pan 2,add 1 cup of flour, beer, and beaten egg. Mix. It should be thick, but if too thick add more beer. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
Cut fish in 3 ounce pieces.
Dredge fish in dry flour until coated.

Add to dry flour again and coat.
Spray air fryer with cooking spray generously then spray fish. Cook for 7 minutes per side at 390.
