For our first attempt at making an oven dish in the Air Fryer, I made a tasty combination of cod, fennel and a spicy curry. Add some rice and enjoy an easy, healthy dinner for two.

So for this recipe I used red curry paste, which is the most spicy of the sort. I think that’s a great combination with the subtle taste of cod. However, feel free to use a less spicy curry if you like!

I used a square oven dish of 19 × 19 × 4 cm and that fits most XXL Air Fryers. If you have a smaller Air Fryer like the Philips Viva, you can use a smaller oven dish (ours is 19,5 × 14,5 × 6 cm) and take half of the ingredients.

? Pro tip: place a rack underneath your oven dish, to make the air circulate better.
