  • 4 salmon fillets skin on
  • 1 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • tsp toasted sesame oil
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt or to taste
  • tsp ground pepper or to taste
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • ¼ tsp crushed chili flakes or to taste


  • Place the salmon fillets into a shallow dish. Whisk soy sauce, oil, salt, and pepper to a small mixing bowl.
  • Pour the dressing over the salmon fillets and gently rub all over the fish. Allow it to marinate in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile preheat the air fryer to 425°F.
  • Place the fillets into the air fryer basket, skin side down, and cook at 400°F for 8 minutes.
  • Lightly brush with honey and sprinkle with sesame seeds and chili flakes. Cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  • Serve with your favorite side, like cooked rice and enjoy!


  • Salmon: Use fresh, high-quality salmon.
  • Sesame oil: You can substitute olive oil, grape seed oil, or avocado oil, but the sesame oil adds extra flavor.
  • Honey: You can substitute maple syrup if needed.
  • Chili flakes: The slight spice balances the sweet honey, but they can be left out if desired.
  • Use the same size filets. This will help the salmon cook evenly.
  • Don't overcrowd the baskets. If the salmon is all touching or overlapping, it won't get crispy on the edges. Cook in two batches if needed.
  • Don't overcook it. The cooking time depends on the thickness of the filets and the specific air fryer. Check the doneness with a fork. Salmon is done when it is opaque and easily flakes.
  • Storage: Store in an air-tight container for up to 3 days. 
  • Freezer: Wrap tightly or store in an air-tight container and freeze for up to 3 months.
