Air Fryer Maple Dijon Salmon

What You'll Need

Grab some wild caught salmon and a few other ingredients for the maple dijon glaze, and let's begin!

Make the Glaze

Mix dijon mustard, maple syrup, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Then, preheat the air fryer.

Prepare the Salmon

Dry the salmon filets with a paper towel, brush them with avocado oil, and then season them with salt and pepper.

Air Fry the Salmon

Put the salmon in the air fryer, skin side down. Air fry for 7-9 minutes, opening the air fryer at 5 minutes to brush on the glaze and add the lemon slices. 

Finish Cooking

Let the salmon cook for the remaining 2-4 minutes, then check the doneness with a fork.


Take your tender, flaky air fryer salmon out of the basket, and serve with veggies, a salad, or your favorite side!
