  • Air Fryer
  • Baking dish
  • Silicon flexible turner



  • Turn the Air Fryer on to 180°C/350 F for 15 mins (allow 5 mins to preheat if your model requires it)
  • Add salmon fillets to a small baking dish, pour in teriyaki sauce and let it sit for a minute Note 2
  • Cut 2 strips of baking paper and use them to line the AIr Fryer basket Note 3
  • Place the marinated salmon fillets skin side up on the baking paper strips
  • Cook the fish for 7 mins, then pull the Air Fryer basket towards you, rest on a heat proof surface, use a silicon flexible turner to 'flip' the fish, remove the baking paper and push the Air Fryer basket back into place. Cook for a further 7 mins.
  • Serve immediately with Basil Yogurt Sauce and greens


  • Note 1 I am using thawed salmon fillets for this recipe. You can use fresh, thawed or frozen. Cooking from frozen will take an additional 5 mins cook time. 
  • Note 2 It doesn't matter about the order here. Sometimes I put the sauce in, then put the salmon in and sometimes I pour it on top. What matters is that when it is marinating, the skin side is up (the sauce won't penetrate the skin) and that there is some sauce under the flesh of the fish, simply lift and place back down if you pour the sauce in after adding the salmon fillets. 
  • Note 3 Cutting the baking paper into strips, allows the absolute minimum amount of paper to be in the Air Fryer. The Air Fryer works by allowing air to flow around food including through the holes at the base, so we won't to block as little air flow as possible. The fish needs to be on the baking paper when the Air Fryer is on, otherwise it will flick up into the heating element and either burn or catch fire. (Don't worry, if it ever flies up, you will smell it quickly and can save the day).
