I don't know why it took me SO long to invest in an Air Fryer- regardless, it has become my go-to kitchen appliance. It's been great during these warmer months as it's an easy alternative to using the oven which often heats up the whole house.
I purchased the Ninja Air Fryer, mainly because the reviews online are incredible.
Since purchasing it, I think so far my favorite dish to cook is salmon. I love fish, however I find it super intimidating to cook in the oven / grill, for some reason. So it's been really easy and not scary at all to cook fish!
Let's get to the recipe, because I hate recipe blog posts that have like a 1000 word essay before you get into the recipe!
AIR FRYER SALMON
- 2 salmon fillet
- fresh pasta of choice
- veggies of choice
- dried dill
- coarse sea salt
- kerrygold butter
First, boil water in a saucepan (I like to add salt and olive oil). Prep your veggies and set aside with pasta.
Next, preheat your air fryer by heating to 390 degrees F, for 3-4 minutes. When ready, place your 2 salmon fillets inside; sprinkle sea salt and dill over the top. Cook for 6 minutes, check on it, then cook for an additional 6 minutes (or longer) until done.
If your water is boiling, add your pasta and veggies, and cook according to pasta package. (The fresh pasta I like from Whole Foods only takes 3 minutes to cook which is perfect for the veggies too!) Drain once cooked, add butter, sprinkle sea salt.
Plate your pasta & veggies with your salmon, and I promise you this meal will leave a smile on your face from how satisfying it is.
