Air fried lemon honey garlic salmon

This air-fryed salmon recipe is a weekly staple in our home. It’s made with a few, good-for-you ingredients and fits our diet great. If you’re following WW, Salmon is 0 pts and if you’re not, it’s still a great source of protein. The air fryer is also my preferred method for perfectly cooked salmon. The end result is buttery, flaky, and super tender.

I love to pair salmon, which is generally rich and mild, with something acidic, so this honey lemon garlic sauce is a great complement. On the side, I serve it with zucchini and mushroom, air fried and topped with crumbled Boursin cheese. All in all, this entire dinner is just a few points, and is extremely satisfying.

Equipment

  • Mixing Bowl
  • Air Fryer

Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb salmon
For the sauce:
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • zest of one lemon
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2-3 cloves garlic minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Lemon slices
For the side dish:
  • 2 zucchini cut into half slices
  • 1 small box baby Bella mushrooms stems removed and sliced
  • 2 tbsp Boursin cheese
  • Olive oil
  • Salt pepper, garlic powder

Instructions
 

  • Combine sauce ingredients, put salmon in a dish or ziploc bag, and use half the sauce to marinate the salmon for 20-30 min (optional, can skip this step if pressed for time)
  • Meanwhile, clean and cut zucchini and mushrooms. Toss in olive oil, tsp salt, tsp pepper, and 2 tsp garlic powder. Spread onto air fryer trays, making sure nothing overlaps (don’t want over crowding!)
  • Spray or brush air fryer tray with oil, place salmon skin side down, and top with additional sauce and sliced lemon
  • Air fry at 390 for ~12-14 min. I did this in my oven-style air fryer, so I can fit multiple trays at once and this all came together super quickly. If you have a smaller air fryer, just use the same timing but do it separately until your veggies are tender enough for your liking!
  • Top veggies with crumbled garlic herb Boursin cheese and serve alongside the salmon!

  1. Do you think this would work with cod? I half our family likes salmon, the other half does not. Was looking for a preparation where I could make both with the same flavors. Thanks!
