Gorton’s Crunchy Breaded Fish Fillets

4 Gorton’s Crunchy Breaded Fish Fillets
4 large beets (2 red and 2 golden), peeled and diced
2 cups packed baby arugula
2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
Handful of fresh basil
Handful of baby spinach
1 lemon, juiced
Salt and pepper, to taste
Extra-virgin olive oil for drizzling


Step 1

Fully cook fish to an internal temperature of 165°F or higher before serving.

Step 2

Toss the beets with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, salt and pepper. If using both golden and red beets, make sure to toss in separate bowls and keep separated.

Step 3

Place the beets and the fish fillets in your air fryer basket and cook at 400°F for 8 minutes. Turn the fish fillets and toss the beets. Air fry for another 5 to 8 minutes until the fillets are golden and the beets are fork tender.

Step 4

Make the green vinaigrette: in a blender, add the spinach, basil, a pinch of salt, lemon juice and olive oil. Blend until smooth.

Step 5

To serve: add the baby arugula to a serving plate (or make two individual plates). Top with the beets and the fish fillets. Sprinkle with feta cheese and drizzle with the vinaigrette. Serve and enjoy!
