Heart Healthy Recipe: Air Fryer Lemon Garlic Butter Fish

Kirk and Grace close out Heart Health Month with a healthy and delicious fish recipe.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — February is coming to a close, which means Heart Health Month is almost over. 

13 ON YOUR SIDE's Kirk Montgomery met up with Grace DeRocha from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan at the Mary Free Bed YMCA in Grand Rapids for one last heart healthy recipe to close out the month. 

She shared a delicious and very easy air-fryer recipe -- because we all know how much Kirk loves using his air-fryer! She put together a lemon garlic butter fish dish that is the perfect meal to end Heart Health Month.

Lemon Garlic Butter Fish

Ingredients for the sauce

3 tsp. capers, if large, cut in half
4 Tbsp. butter, melted
3 small cloves garlic (finely minced)
6 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 tsp. lemon zest
2 tsp. Italian seasoning
2 tsp. parsley, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
4 (6-ounce) cod or halibut fillets


1. Lightly spray cooking spray in the air fryer. Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. 

2. In a small bowl, whisk together sauce ingredients: capers, butter, garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest and Italian seasoning; reserve 4 tablespoons sauce and set aside for serving.

3. Salt and pepper the fish and place in a single layer in the air fryer. Lightly drizzle with about half of the sauce mixture.

4. Bake until fish flakes easily with a fork and the tomatoes begin to burst and have softened, about 10 minutes.

5. Serve with reserved butter mixture and garnish with parsley, if desired. Enjoy!
