Glazed Cedar Plank Salmon in the Air Fryer

As I’ve said before, one of my local markets has a very nice salmon supplier – on par with our fave fish monger, but less pricey – and also offer their fillets with options; seasoned, cedar plank, etc.

Of course, one of their seasoning options uses my current fave steakhouse blend, which I always have on hand, so I skipped that option and picked up a fillet for two on a cedar plank for dinner.

Nice choice.

•Skin-on salmon fillet(s)
•Cedar plank(s)
•Steak seasoning
Honey Mustard Dressing
•Barbecue sauce*

*You can use my barbecue sauce, or your own fave store bought. Same with the honey mustard dressing.

For however many folx you are feeding, arrange enough cedar planks to hold the salmon fillets in a flat bottomed dish and cover with water. Weight the planks down so that they do not float up to the top of the water, then set aside and let them soak for one to two hours.

About 30 minutes before you plan to cook the salmon, arrange the fillets (skin side down) in a single layer in another flat bottomed container and sprinkle the steak seasoning evenly over the top.

Spread the honey mustard dressing over the fillets, cover the container, and stash in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Heat your air fryer to 400º and line your air fryer tray with parchment paper, remove the cedar plank(s) from the water, and arrange in a single layer on the parchment. If you are cooking for a crowd, you may need to to this in shifts.

Note: I have had three air fryers so far, and each one has had its own “best” time and temp settings. My current machine, which is my fave, works best for just about anything at 400º, and even then, cooking times can (and often do) vary from whatever instructions I am meant to be following, so, go by your experience with your machine.

Place each marinated fillet on a cedar plank, and top with barbecue sauce.

Note: for us, this one fillet was the perfect size for dinner, with yellow rice and Braised Celery on the side.

Air fry for ten to twelve minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes nicely with a fork.

My kinda large single fillet took a bit longer, but again, each air fryer seems to be different, so check after ten minutes and then cook longer as needed.

In the end, perfectly cooked, perfectly tasty glazed salmon.
