  • 4 salmon fillets

Maple Marinade

  • 3 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 4 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper


  • Combine maple syrup, soy sauce, garlic, and black pepper. Put salmon fillets in a ziplock bag and pour marinade in the bag. Let marinate for 10-30 min. Instead of marinating the salmon you can also just season it with salt and pepper or use one of my seasoning ideas above.
  • Place salmon fillets in one layer in the Air Fryer basket, discard marinade.
  • Cook at 350 degrees F for 8-10 min for medium rare or for 10-12 min for well done depending on the thickness of your fillets. For medium rare aim for an internal temperature of 120-125 degrees F and for well done for 140 degrees F.
