These Air-Fried Fish Tacos Are Beer Battered in Corona

When I think Coronas and fish tacos, I think warm weather.

This recipe for Air Fryer Beer Battered Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa bring a little taste of summer to the kitchen, any time of year!

Fish tacos can definitely be made a few different ways. You can marinade the fish before cooking, you can give it a rub beforehand, or you can bread it up and cook it. You can also grill, sauté or fry the fish as well, depending on what kind of fish taco flavor you are looking for. But if you are anything like me and love rich flavor but can do without all the fat, then the air-fryer may just be for you.

Air fryers are really easy to use, you just have to remember that to get a golden-brown color to your food, you need to spray the rack and the top of the food with some non-stick spray. It works like a champ and is so dang tasty.
