    I use a "Toaster Oven" style air fryer. Use it more as a broiler than an air fryer.
    - I use a small pizza pan - Cover pan with foil - make clean up easy
    - squirt a little oil on foil - I use olive oil. sometimes canola
    -- Just enough oil to coat the foil - not deep frying here
    - Place fillet on foil/oil - flip it around to coat both sides with oil
    -- End with "good side up" - you know what I mean?
    - Sprinkle with a little spice - I use garlic powder, salt, pepper (sometimes Italian seasoning)
    - Lightly cover with Panko bread crumbs - just sprinkle some on top. should stick to the oil on top of the fillet
    - finish with a little more salt and pepper
    - Optional: Add a couple of super thin strips of butter (1" x 1" x super thin) on top of the bread crumbs (makes it crispy when "frying")
    - Air Broil/Air Fry for 10 minutes @ 400F - more or less depending on thickness

    This is for walleye (and other skinless/flaky fish), not for perch (just my opinion). Perch needs to be fried the old fashioned way.

    Hi Ted, well first off nothing beats frying in oil, having an air fryer i have tried it a few ways and it is fair, if you bread it you must spray it with oil/pam to brown and give it bit of crisp, and without breading use seasonings with butter or lemon juice for some moisture. .
