Tarter Sauce

  • 1/4 cup of fat-free mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons, unsweetened dill pickles, chopped
  • 1 tsp of pickle juice, from the jar

Fish Sandwiches

  • 2 (6oz) white fish filets such as cod, tilapia, halibut, or walleye
  • 2 tsp of Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup of panko bread crumbs
  • 2 slices of low fat American Cheese Singles
  • 2 light hamburger buns or brioche buns (will be more points)


  1. Tartar Sauce: In a small bowl, stir the mayonnaise, chopped pickles, and pickle juice; set aside in the fridge while you prepare your fish. 
  2. Mix the bread crumbs and seasoning together in a shallow dish. Stir to combine.
  3. In another shallow dish, beat an egg with a fork.
  4. For the fish: Take your fish and dip it into the egg on both sides, then dip it into the bread crumb mixture. Repeat with the remaining fish. 
  5. Air Fry:  Place the fish in your air fryer basket and set the temperature for 350 and the time to 12 minutes. Spray the fish with cooking spray and close the basket.
  6. Flip the fish half ways through cooking at 6 minutes. 
  7. When the fish is done, take it out and set it aside on a plate
  8. Toast your buns. Set the buns in the air fryer basket (white side up) and spray the buns with cooking spray. Continue cooking the buns for 2 to 3 minutes (same temperature as above) or until the buns are golden brown around the edges. 
  9. To serve: place the crispy fish filet with some cheese on top and a couple of tablespoons of the tarter sauce.  Serve immediately.
