How To Make Air Fryer Bourbon Glazed Salmon
Start by mixing the brown sugar, bourbon, soy sauce, ginger, lime juice, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes in a small bowl. Place the fillets into the bag, then place it in the refrigerator for about 1-2 hours.
Spray your basket or tray with olive oil. Then place the Salmon in the air fryer basket or tray. Then set the temperature to 400 degrees F for 6 minutes; after 6 minutes, brush the Salmon with some more marinade, and air fry for another 6 minutes.
Check the internal temperature, which should read 145 degrees F.
- Spray your air fryer basket with cooking spray, line your basket with parchment paper or even a silicone air fryer liner.
- For best results, baste your Salmon frequently during the cooking process.
- Do not crowd the Salmon in the air fryer. For best results, leave plenty of room around the Salmon, so it perfectly cooks up.
- Since every air fryer cooks at a slightly different rate, make sure to check your Salmon frequently during the cooking process.
DOES SALMON IN THE AIR FRYER STINK UP THE HOUSE?

A Great Side Dish For Air Fryer Bourbon Glazed Salmon
CAN I USE FROZEN SALMON?
Yes, although the cooking time will be a bit longer, remember, for best results, baste your Salmon frequently during the cooking process.
CAN I USE SALMON THAT STILL HAS THE SKIN ON?
I get this question a lot, and the answer is YES! Salmon skin is delicious. It’s crispy and flavorful, especially when cooking it in butter or another high-quality fat like coconut oil.
