Here is a whole fish recipe that everyone can try with their air fryer. The marinade I made is full of flavor and thought it would go well with any meat but fish seemed appropriate. I used miso and Makgeolli to make the marinade. I added shallot and ginger to add extra flavor.

Makgeolli is Korean rice wine that you typically drink. It’s a milky drink that is sweet but also has sour and bitter taste to it. You can use it for cooking to add depth and sweetness to a dish.

Miso has an earthy and salty flavor that can be used with Makgeolli. I added shallot as it is not as assertive as onion with a hint of sweetness. Ginger also adds sweet, peppery aspect to the dish.

I used striped bass for my fish of choice.


  1. 1.5 lb fish
  2. 1 shallot, chopped
  3. 1/3 ginger, chopped
  4. 3 tablespoon miso paste
  5. 3 tablespoon soy sauce
  6. 3 tablespoon makgeolli


  • Mix chopped shallot, chopped ginger, soy sauce, miso, and makegelli well.
  • Slice slits on both sides of the fish
  • Use hand to coat the fish with the sauce on the both side
  • Place the fish into air fryer cook at 380F for 25mins. Flip over half way through
