How to make Airfried Maple Dijon Glazed Salmon and Potatoes

Prep the potatoes

Cooking the potatoes before the salmon is a must if your air fryer is too small. This also gives you time to preheat the air fryer for the salmon and lets you set different temperatures for the salmon and the potatoes.

1️⃣ Peel potatoes that are around 5cm or if you have larger ones just cut them into equal chunks.

2️⃣ In the airfryer basket, toss the potatoes, the spices, and the oil. Make sure to coat all the potatoes with oil and spices.

3️⃣ Airfry at 380°F (195°C) for 10 minutes. Flip the potatoes, and roast for 10 more minutes.  Check that the potatoes are fork-tender and crispy on the outside.

Easy Air Fryer Salmon

While the potatoes are starting to roast, get your salmon ready for air frying.

1️⃣ Place the fillets skin-side down on a sheet of parchment paper. Cut the parchment paper a little smaller than the size of the basket and leave long sides to lift the salmon.

2️⃣ Use a pastry brush to spread the maple syrup, dijon mustard, and greek yogurt mix. Sprinkle some pepper if you like.

3️⃣ Bake for 13 to 16 minutes, or until cooked through. Cooking time depends on the size and thickness of the fillets. Remove the salmon from the basket immediately or it will continue to cook.

4️⃣ Garnish with the parsley, and serve with the potatoes. Enjoy!

Serving Suggestions

Top Tips

2️⃣ Pat the surface of the salmon dry with paper towels to help the seasonings stick to the salmon.

FAQs

Can you freeze airfried salmon?

Yes, you can freeze air-fried salmon but when reheated the salmon would not taste as fresh and soft as when you cook it the first time.
