Cut fish into 2-inch (5 cm) chunks. In a bowl, sprinkle fish with salt and pepper, then toss with soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, and garlic until coated. Pour panko crumbs into a shallow dish. In batches of 2 or 3, roll and press fish chunks in crumbs until well-coated before transferring to plate.
Arrange nuggets in basket of air fryer, leaving 1 inch (2.5 cm) between nuggets. Spritz with cooking spray. Cook in preheated 375°F (190°C) air fryer until golden and fish flakes easily when tested with a fork; 5 to 6 minutes per side.
