- METHOD -
FOR THE TARTAR SAUCE:
Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl, mix well and set aside in the fridge until serving and preheat air fryer to 200˚C.
Place the sweet potato sticks in a large bowl and drizzle over the olive oil and season with the Cape Herb & Spice Spicy Chip Seasoning. Toss to coat well.
Then transfer the seasoned sweet potatoes to the air fryer basket making sure not to overcrowd them. Allow for good airflow so they cook evenly and crisp (If you stack them too tightly, they will steam and be very soft).
Air fry for 10-12 minutes, tossing halfway, until tender on the inside and crispy on the outside with some darkened charred spots.
While the fries are cooking, prepare the fish.
To do this, place the whisked eggs in a small bowl. Place the flour in another bowl, and mix breadcrumbs and parmesan in a third bowl.
Pat the fish dry with paper towel and cut it into chunky strips. Then season the kingklip all over with the Cape Herb & Spice Louisiana Cajun Seasoning.
Place seasoned fish pieces in the flour, toss to coat and then dip each fish piece into the beaten eggs, and then toss into the breadcrumb mixture.
As the sweet potato fries come out of the hot air fryer, remove and set aside.
Quickly add the kingklip bites to the basket.
Air fry for 8 minutes, flipping halfway, until cooked through and golden brown.
The air frying time will depend largely on how you’ve cut your fish pieces so keep an eye on them to avoid over or under cooking.
Serve kingklip bites alongside sweet potato fries with bowls of tartare sauce for dipping.
Squeeze over some fresh lemon juice and enjoy!
