Spicy Air Fryer Salmon Recipe

Spicy Air Fryer Salmon


A sweet and spicy seasoning mix made with steak seasoning, brown sugar, coriander, cumin, and cayenne tops salmon fillets which are air fried for a quick and easy dinner.


  • 2 tablespoons grill seasoning (such as Montreal Steak Seasoning)
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 pounds salmon fillets, skin on


  1. Preheat the air fryer to the fish setting of 330 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 2 minutes.
  2. Combine steak seasoning, brown sugar, cumin, coriander, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle about 2 teaspoons of the seasoning mix (or more, if desired) on each salmon fillet. Place salmon in the air fryer basket in one layer.
  3. Working in batches if necessary, cook salmon in the air fryer until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 18 minutes. Transfer the cooked salmon onto a plate and keep warm in the oven preheated to the lowest setting. Repeat with remaining salmon fillets. Serve immediately.
