  • 1 pound salmon fillet wild caught
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • parsley optional garnish


  • Remove the bones from your salmon fillet and cut into 4 equal portions. 
  • Salt and pepper each side (even the skin side). 
  • In a small bowl, add brown sugar and Dijon. Mix and brush onto the flesh of salmon. 
  • Place salmon into air fryer and cook on 355 degrees for 14-16 minutes skin side down. We like it right at 14 minutes but if you like it well done, cook a little longer. 
  • Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
