  • Air fryer
  • Tongs
  • Spray
  • Spatula


  • 4, 5- ounce salmon fillets skin on
  • pinch of Redmond sea salt
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 2 teaspoons tamari or coconut aminos
  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar
  • 2 clove garlic pressed (1/2 teaspoon pressed garlic)
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger grated
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar for grain-free, use apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon roasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds optional, for garnish
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh parsley or cilantro optional, for garnish
  • Avocado oil cooking spray


  • Preheat your air fryer as indicated - mine requires 400 degrees F for 5 minutes.
  • Season the salmon fillets lightly with sea salt and pepper to taste.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the hoisin sauce, soy sauce or tamari, coconut sugar, vinegar and sesame oil, then the garlic and ginger.
  • Brush the glaze over the exposed surfaces of the salmon.
  • Spray the basket surfaces of the air fryer with cooking spray (I used avocado oil spray).
  • Place the salmon fillets skin side down onto the basket grates, making sure they're not touching.
  • Air fry at 390 degrees F for 10 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches at least 145 degrees F.
  • Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and parsley or cilantro.
  • Serve with Asian Ginger-Almond Slaw and Coconut Milk Rice or sides of choice.


I adapted this recipe to a gluten-free version.
