Being from Boston, my uncles were all fisherman. Therefore, I was treated to a LOT of seafood, over the years. There was absolutely nothing better than my uncles dropping off the days’ catch to my mom, who would almost make something amazing. I remember my uncle’s dropping off baby lobsters because no one would buy them, now we all know them as chicken lobsters, and if they were free, there would be a line around the block, to get them.
My husband grew up as a good old mid-western boy, but he vacationed every year at Cape Cod, where he ate his share of great seafood.
When I moved to Ohio after we got married, I noticed that the seafood was different, they didn’t have lobsters, they had crab legs, and I literally remember going through the supermarket and saying, what are those? They just looked like something that came from outer space. Instead of cod, they ate salmon. I have never had salmon, so it was an acquired taste, my mother in law made the best salmon that I have ever had. I will probably be making it in the next couple of weeks, as we finish up Lent. She served it with a creamy dill dip, that even my son would eat (granted he would eat it without the salmon, but he would finish his bowl, LOL).
Seafood is important, it’s a great source of protein without a lot of fat. It hits most of the marks, gluten free, low carb, and other diets.
Today, I am bringing you salmon, which I did not eat, until my mother in law made it for me one fine day, but today it is air fried, and it is delicious, it is easy to prepare and it goes great with the homemade honey mustard sauce. Which, you only need a few ingredients, which are probably in your pantry. I promise y9ou, that once you make this, you will be making it over and over again.
Hope you and yours enjoy!

This is a lovely and light refreshing meal, made quickly in the air fryer. Serve it up for a quick lunch or a great supper.
- 2-4 pieces salmon
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
Start with a piece of salmon fillet.
Cut it into pieces, the number of pieces will depend on how large your salmon piece is. And how many you are cooking for.
Then gather all of your ingredients.
In a small mixing bowl, mix together the mayo, honey, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper.
Reserve the rest for a dipping sauce.
Spread the mixture over the salmon fillets.
Place salmon fillets in a sprayed air fryer basket.
Cook at 350 degrees F, for 9 minutes.
If you have thicker salmon fillets or would like them cooked longer, just adjust the time.
Per the USDA chart salmon is safe to eat at 145 degrees F.
Remove from the air fryer.
Plate, serve and enjoy!
Serve with a side of the sauce. It makes an excellent dipping sauce.
