Advertisement

Prep time: 5 minutes | Cook time: 12 to 16 minutes | Serves 4
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice wine or dry sherry
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
¼ teaspoon minced ginger
4 (6-ounce / 170-g) salmon fillets, skin-on
½ tablespoon sesame seeds
Cooking spray

  1. In a small bowl, mix the soy sauce, rice wine, brown sugar, toasted sesame oil,
    garlic, and ginger.
  2. Place the salmon in a shallow baking dish and pour the marinade over the fillets.
    Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, turning the fillets occasionally to coat in
    the marinade.
  3. Set the temperature of the air fryer oven to 370ºF (188ºC). Press Start to begin
    preheating. Spray the air fryer oven perforated pan lightly with cooking spray.
  4. Shake off as much marinade as possible and place the fillets, skin side down, in
    the air fryer perforated pan in a single layer. Reserve the marinade. You may
    need to cook them in batches.
  5. Air fry for 8 to 10 minutes. Brush the tops of the salmon fillets with the reserved
    marinade and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  6. Increase the temperature to 400ºF (204ºC) and air fry for 2 to 5 more minutes for
    medium, 1 to 3 minutes for medium rare, or 4 to 6 minutes for well done.
  7. Serve warm.
