Air Fryer Salmon with Maple Dijon Sauce
Flaky and flavorful, the air fryer is a super fast and easy way to cook salmon to tender perfection. This recipe is extra delicious with a sweet and savory maple dijon glaze.
Preheat an air fryer to 400 degrees F.
Combine the maple syrup, dijon, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper in a medium bowl and whisk until well combined. Add salmon to the marinade, coating each side, and marinate for 20 minutes.
Lightly spray the air fryer basket with olive oil or cooking spray. Remove the salmon from the marinade, reserving the marinade. Add the salmon filets to the fryer basket making sure there is room around each piece. You may need to cook two batches if your air fryer basket is small. Cook for 6 to 7 minutes or until salmon is cooked through and flakes with a fork.
Add the butter to a small sauce pan and heat over medium high heat. Add the remaining marinade and simmer for 2-3 minutes or until the sauce is heated through and thickened. Drizzle the sauce over the salmon before serving.
