💡 Tips

Here are my top tips  for making the perfect airfryer salmon teriyaki:

Salmon Fish

One of the most important things to consider when making this teriyaki salmon air fryer recipe is the quality of the fish.

Choosing fresh and high-quality salmon is crucial for a successful dish. I prefer wild-caught salmon.

Make sure to purchase the fish from a reputable source and avoid any that looks discolored or has a strong fishy odor.

Don’t Overcook the Salmon

To get a perfectly cooked salmon in the air fryer, it’s very important to avoid overcooking the fish.

Overcooking salmon can make it dry and tough, which can ruin the dish’s flavor and texture.

Make sure to check the internal temperature of the salmon frequently using a meat thermometer to ensure that it reaches 145F without going over.

Toppings

Green onions and sesame seeds are great choices, but you can also add other toppings like cilantro, chopped nuts, or even a squeeze of lime juice to upgrade the dish’s flavor.

Experiment with different toppings and find the ones that you enjoy the most.

Pat Dry the Salmon Before Marinating

Before marinating the salmon, make sure to pat it dry using a paper towel.

This way you can remove any excess moisture from the fish, allowing it to absorb the marinade better.

Double the Recipe for Meal Prep

This air fryer teriyaki salmon recipe is perfect for meal prep, as it can be easily doubled or tripled to make several servings.

Make a big batch of salmon and store it in the refrigerator for up to three days or freeze it for up to one month.
