Air Fry Cajun Salmon




Now that the baby is becoming aware of distance and proximity, I can hardly cook for dinner without planning well in advance.

So, the air fryer is really helpful and useful! Of course, cooking at high temperatures is not so good - but I suppose striking a balance would be helpful too :)

Here, I have sent everything into the air fryer - salmon, carrots, asparagus, mushroom, potato. I boiled the hard-boiled egg in advance, and it was pretty easy and quick.

Air Fried Cajun Salmon

prep time: 15 MINScook time: 10 MINStotal time: 25 mins

INGREDIENTS:

  • Salmon fillet
  • Swiss brown mushrooms, quartered
  • 1/2 carrot, sliced or chopped
  • A handful of asparagus
  • Red potato, cut and soaked in water for 10 mins
  • Hard-boiled egg, optional
  • Cajun spice
  • Oil

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Wash and pat dry the salmon fillet. Sprinkle cajun spices on both sides of the salmon fillet. Rub well. Sprinkle some oil (about 1 tsp) on both sides as well. Drain potato and pat dry. Sprinkle oil and black pepper. Toss.
  2. Preheat air fryer to 180C for 3 mins.
  3. Place the salmon skin down on the grill pan, with the cut vegetables and potato around the sides. Air fry for about 7-10 mins, depending on size of salmon. However, do check the salmon at about 5 min mark. If it's well-cooked by 5 mins, you can proceed to next step.
  4. Set air fryer to 200C and air fry for about 2-3 mins to make the salmon brown and slightly crispy.
  5. Remove from air fryer and serve.

    Note:
    You can serve with some ketchup/chilli sauce by the side, as well as with some lemon for the salmon.

This way of preparing salmon is quite easy and yummy, by using the Cajun spice. You can cook the salmon this way and serve with rice or spaghetti as well!
