Our local fish monger/smokehouse has great salmon, so we have it rather a lot, and, after trying a couple of different combinations, have settled on the air fryer and a sweet chili sauce and mayonnaise glaze for our favorite preparation.
Not a salmon fan?
Theglaze works a treat on swordfish, too, so now you have options.
•1 tbsp mayonnaise
•1 tbsp Cajun Power Spicy Garlic Pepper Sauce – or your fave hot sauce, to taste
•1 tbsp sweet chili sauce
•1 tbsp brown sugar
•1 tsp paprika
•2 salmon fillets, skin-on
Heat your air fryer to 400º and brush the air fryer basket with olive oil.
Place the salmon fillets, skin side down on the basket and season with the salt and pepper.
Whisk the glaze ingredients together in a small bowl, then brush over the salmon.
Note: this amount of glaze seems to be perfect for two servings, if you’re cooking for a crowd, go ahead and feel free double, or triple the glaze amounts.
Pop the salmon into the hot air fryer and cook for eight or nine minutes, until the top is slightly charred, and the flesh flakes when tested with a fork.
