Now, let’s dive into the ingredients and instructions for this delectable dish:


  • 4 salmon fillets, or 1 1lb fillet cut into 4 pieces
  • 6 tablespoons soy sauce
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • ½ tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped (optional)


  1. Prepare the Marinade: In a bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, Dijon mustard, brown sugar, and minced garlic until well combined. This flavorful marinade serves as the key to infusing the salmon with irresistible taste sensations.
  2. Marinate the Salmon: Place the salmon fillets in a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag, ensuring they are arranged in a single layer. Pour the marinade over the salmon, making sure that each fillet is thoroughly coated. For optimal flavor infusion, refrigerate the salmon and allow it to marinate for 20-30 minutes. This step allows the salmon to absorb the delicious flavors of the marinade, resulting in a mouthwatering culinary experience.
  3. Preheat the Air Fryer: Meanwhile, preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, creating the perfect cooking environment for achieving crispy perfection.
  4. Air Fry the Salmon: Once the salmon has marinated to perfection, remove it from the refrigerator and place the fillets in the greased or lined air fryer basket. Cook the salmon in the air fryer for 7-12 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets, or until they are cooked to your desired level of doneness. The air fryer’s high heat ensures that the salmon develops a golden exterior while remaining tender and moist on the inside.
  5. Garnish and Serve: As the salmon emerges from the air fryer, top it with finely chopped green onions for a vibrant burst of freshness and flavor. This optional garnish adds a delightful finishing touch to the dish, enhancing its visual appeal and tantalizing aroma. Serve the marinated air fryer salmon immediately and savor every delectable bite.

Conclusion: With its irresistible flavor and effortless preparation, our Marinated Air Fryer Salmon is sure to impress even the most discerning palates.
