Everything Bagel Crusted, Air-Fried Salmon

the best

easy weeknight salmon recipe you'll want to make every day

Possibly the easiest, most delicious way to prepare salmon!

It takes 10 minutes in the air-fryer, and gives you that perfect outer crust with a buttery, flaky center!

I eat salmon at least once a week, and I used to mix it up in the way I prepare it, but ever since I perfected this recipe, I’ve only made it this way, and I look forward to it every week!

It’s also great as leftovers. I usually make two peices, and have one that night and the other the next day for breakfast (on avocado toast) or for lunch/dinner.

To start this simple dinner, preheat your air-fryer to 400 degrees

Then you want to pat your salmon filets dry with a towel. This is crucial as it helps the seasoning stick to the salmon.

Next, generously add your everything bagel seasoning. You can definitely make your own, but you all know I am lazy, and just buy mine from Trader Joe’s!

This is what the salmon should look like once its been dried and sprinkled with seasoning

Now I know I may be weird for this but I LOVE SALMON SKIN especially when the air fryer makes it nice and crispy!

So with that said, I only season one side of the salmon because I eat the skin on the other side. However, if you remove the skin before cooking, feel free to season both sides.

Tip: when you season the salmon, press the Everything But the Bagel slighlty into the salmon to ensure it sticks

Next place the fish in the air fryer for 10 minutes, and that’s it!

All the heart eyes for this salmon!

I layed my salmon on a bed of shredded brussels sprouts which I tossed with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, salt, and pepper, and also air fried.

The sweetness from the honey, acidity from the vinegar, and the crunch make for the perfect pairing with this salmon!

Overall this delicious, nutritious, and simple dinner took me 15 minutes and was gone in less than 1 lol!

Lastly, the salmon and the brussels sprouts both came from my at-home grocery delivery through Hungryroot! I aboslutely love the options they have, and the high quality produce and protein! You can use my code JENNA30 to save money on your first order!
