{air fryer bbq salmon}

I have to be honest – I haven’t LOVED being in the kitchen lately. It used to be my thang!

A big glass of wine, music playing, cooking away in the kitchen. Kinda my way of winding down at the end of the day. I guess it ebbs and flows? Maybe I’m more of a summery kitchen lover? We’ll see….fingers crossed for my peeps. Ha!

Anyway, I saw TheBuyGuide on instagram do an air fryer salmon the other day. And the finished product looked so damn good. I had to try it out. Obvi putting my spin on it. Tried it out last night. Annndddd…

It was a slam dunk. Super easy. Healthy. Very little mess. And dinner was done from start to finish in 15 minutes. That’s my kind of weeknight dinner.

So, I had to share ASAP! Since this doesn’t happen as often as I’d like for it to. I miss sharing recipes here.

{air fryer bbq salmon}

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 lbs salmon, cubed into 1″ chunks
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • salt + pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons barbeque sauce (we love bone suckin’ sauce)

Here’s what you do:

In a bowl add cubed salmon. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt + pepper + dill and toss.

Add lemon juice + bbq sauce and combine.

Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees for about 5 minutes.

Coat basket with non-stick spray. Add 1/2 of the salmon and separate so they are not touching. Cook at 400 degrees for 4 minutes.

After 4 minutes, give the salmon a good toss, I shake the basket.

Back in the air fryer at 400 degrees for 4 additional minutes.

Continue with remaining salmon.


The salmon will be nice and crispy on the outside and perfectly tender in the center. DROOL!!!

I served our air fryer bbq salmon over rice + steamed broccoli. So, so good. Give it a try!!!

Remember, you can print the recipe.  “Pin” to your Pinterest board for safe keeping.  If you decide to give it a shot, pretty please – tag me.  Text me.  I can’t wait to hear what you think!!  100% makes my day ♥
