Air fryers are a versatile kitchen appliance. You can cook everything from bread pudding to sausage patties and apple chips in the air fryer. The best part is the food only takes a few minutes to cook. 

This Air Fryer Fish is ready in less than 15 minutes. We used salmon fillets since they are healthy, delicious, and relatively easy to cook. The salmon fillets are coated with a combination of Dijon mustard, olive oil, coconut aminos, and a brown sugar substitute making this air fryer fish keto-friendly. The salmon fillets are sprinkled with garlic flakes, onion flakes, and sesame seeds to add some texture and flavor to the salmon. Overall this salmon is a quick, easy, and delicious recipe that will receive a round of applause. 

Note: If salmon is not your favorite fish, check out our Air Fryer Tilapia Recipe. It's incredibly delicious!

How do you cook fish without the air fryer sticking?

Spraying the basket with non-stick cooking spray is the best way to prevent fish from sticking to the air fryer basket. Alternatively, you can also brush the air fryer basket with oil to prevent the fish from sticking to the basket.

Dry the salmon fillets dry with paper towels, then season them on both sides with salt and pepper.   
Line the air fryer's basket with aluminum foil and preheat it to 375 °F.   
Combine the garlic flakes, onion flakes, and sesame seeds in a small bowl and set it aside.   
Whisk the brown sugar substitute, Dijon mustard, olive oil, and coconut aminos until it is smooth.   
Brush the Dijon mustard mixture onto the salmon.   
Sprinkle the garlic flake mixture over the salmon, then carefully transfer the salmon fillets to the air fryer basket.   
Depending on your salmon's thickness, cook it until it has a temperature of 145 °F. Do not overcook the salmon fillets, or they will be dry.    
Let the salmon fillets rest for 5 minutes before serving.
