1. Thoroughly coat AirFryer Basket with nonstick cooking spray and fit
the basket into the Baking Pan.
2. Stir the flour, cornstarch, Old Bay®, ¼ teaspoon salt and baking
powder together in a medium-size mixing bowl. Whisk in the beer.

Add additional flour should the mixture seem too thin.
3. Season the cod on all sides with the remaining salt, pepper and
lemon juice.
4. Dip each fillet into prepared batter. Place on the prepared AirFryer
Basket and put into freezer for about 30 minutes to firm.
5. While fish is firming in the freezer, prepare the fries.
6. Once the fish is firm, coat evenly with the oil.
7. Place in oven. Set the temperature to 400°F and AirFry for about
12 to 15 minutes, until golden and crispy. Warm fries and serve
immediately with malt vinegar.
