Air Fryer Asian Honey Salmon Recipe

Air Fryer Asian Honey Salmon Recipe
Whenever salmon is on sale, I like to purchase a large piece and try different recipes using it. One of my favorite appliances is my air fryer, and the following Air Fryer Asian Honey Salmon in Foil is one of the best ways to prepare a two-pound piece of salmon. Leftovers are perfect on salads, and it’s even good on its own cold.

6 Servings

2 pounds salmon fillet, about 1" thick
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons brown sugar

Honey Sauce:
2 tablespoons Oriental sesame oil
1 red chile pepper, seeded and finely chopped
6 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

fresh chives, or green onion tops, chopped

  1. Preheat air fryer to 400°.
  2. Tear a large piece of heavy duty foil and place the salmon on the foil. Mix the brown sugar and cornstarch; rub over the surface of the salmon.
  3. Whisk the sauce ingredients together and pour over the salmon.
  4. Bring the sides of the foil together and fold; do the same with the ends to make a leak-proof packet.
  5. Place in the air fryer and set it to 20 minutes.
  6. After 10 minutes, open the foil a little to let the sauce thicken a bit.
  7. After 18 minutes, check to make sure the salmon is just cooked through and barely flakes; if it isn’t done, let it cook the additional 2 minutes.. Sprinkle with the chives and serve.
