Aside from one or two friends of mine, most folk love salmon.
We like ours freshly smoked, for bagels or for my take on Kedgeree, and fresh glazed, on the grill or, more often now, air fryer.
For today’s post, I chose to glaze some food kit salmon fillets with my new Fancy French Fish Sauce (not to worry, I am sharing the recipe again in this post) and, yeh, it all worked a treat in the air fryer, but if you would prefer to grill, go for it.
Fancy French Fish Sauce:
•1/2 cup basic French dressing
•3/4 cup chili sauce
•1 tsp horseradish
•1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
•2 tbsp diced celery
•1 salmon fillet per person
First, let’s make the Fancy French Fish Sauce.
Whisk the French dressing into the chili sauce, then stir in the remaining ingredients until nicely blended.
Transfer to a storage jar, close tightly, then stash in the fridge for a few hours or – always more better – overnight, to allow the flavors to really blend.
Note: yes, this is called a sauce for fish, but we have found it quite nice on brats and burgers and tacos, so feel free to explore!
When ready to cook your salmon, heat your air fryer to 400º and season the salmon with the salt and pepper.
Brush the air fryer basket or grill with olive oil, then add the salmon, skin side down.
Pop into the air fryer and cook for five minutes, then remove form the air fryer and brush on the Fancy French Fish Sauce.
Back into the air fryer for another five minutes, until the salmon is nicely cooked and flaky, and the glaze is just a bit crusty.
Serve as you will. Since this was from a food kit we had ours with some “ok” Parmesan roasted broccoli and a rather nice Aioli on top of the salmon.
Hmmm… should’ve added a bit of that to the broccoli.
