This tender and juicy air fryer salmon is seasoned with a sweet and tangy glaze and baked to perfection!
- 4 6– ounce fresh salmon fillets
- 2 tablespoons sugar-free maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon stone ground dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
- ½ teaspoon garlic salt
- ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
Preheat your air fryer to 400°F for about 7 minutes, while you prepare the salmon.
Dry the salmon on all sides using paper towels and set aside.
Add the dijon mustard, maple syrup, olive oil, smoked paprika, garlic salt and pepper to a small bowl. Whisk until well combined.
Spoon the mixture over each piece of salmon and spread evenly on the top and sides. I brush only olive oil on the bottom, to help prevent sticking to the rack and keep the salmon moist.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through or reaches an internal temperature of at least 125°F, when check with an instant read thermometer. Mine took exactly 9 minutes.
If you don’t have an air fryer, you can bake the salmon in the oven instead:
Preheat your oven to 425°F, mix the glaze ingredients together, spread evenly over the salmon, place the salmon on a baking rack over a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through.
