Ingredients and Method


  • 1 1/2 pounds cod
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon sweet chili sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Mix the parmesan and breadcrumbs in a bowl.
  3. Add the eggs to another bowl and the flour in a third bowl.
  4. Bread the nuggets first in the flour, shaking off the excess, then into the eggs, letting the excess egg drip off and then last into the breadcrumb/parmesan coating.
  5. Place the nuggets on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  6. Bake in the oven for 8 minutes, then remove from the oven and flip the nuggets over.
  7. Return to the oven and cook another 7-8 minutes until the second side is brown.
  8. While the nuggets are in the oven, mix together the bang bang sauce and serve alongside for dipping.
  9. Air Fryer Cooking Instructions: Preheat your Air Fryer to 425 degrees. Add the nuggets in a single layer and cook for 7-8 minutes, flipping if needed to brown evenly.
