How do you make Asian Air Fryer Salmon?

With an air-fryer to support your meal prepping, cooking is easy, quick, and clean! 

First, let the salmon marinate in a well-mixed combination of coconut aminos, honey, sesame oil, garlic and ginger. Place the salmon in the marinade with its skin side up. Cover and let it be in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat with a bit of olive oil. Sauté the green beans until they are lightly charred. This should take about 15 minutes. Season the green beans with sea salt.

Prepare the air fryer by heating it to 400ºF and lightly grease the surface with avocado oil. Fry the salmon in the air fryer basket for 12 minutes.

Other tips for making Asian Air Fryer Salmon:

  • Choose salmon filets that have the same thickness so no salmon gets undercooked or overcooked. With Asian Air Fryer Salmon, the goal is for everything to be perfectly cooked. 

  • Leave your salmon out of the fridge for about 60 minutes to take the chill off.
