Need a boost in brain power? Try this recipe for Air Fryer Salmon Patties! They're crispy and golden on the outside and flaky and moist on the inside and taste delicious. That's because we used fresh salmon fillets, not canned salmon. So they taste much fresher and contain less sodium too.

We also used almond flour instead of breadcrumbs as a binder. Almond flour is a healthy, low-carb alternative to regular flour-based products. Almond flour is also high in protein, vitamin E, and healthy fats. Finally, we added dill, zest, and lime juice to make these salmon patties drool-worthy.

We also made some fresh guacamole as a dipping sauce. So go ahead and dip one or two! Your brain will love the boost of omega-3s.

At what temperature is salmon done in the air fryer?

Salmon is done in the air fryer at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

How long should I leave my salmon in the airfryer?

Leave your salmon in the air fryer for 10 to 12 minutes.

Is it best to cook salmon frozen or thawed?

It is best to cook salmon thawed. That's because frozen salmon doesn't cook as evenly as thawed salmon.

How do I make salmon patties in my Airfryer?

You make salmon patties by placing the salmon fillet pieces and the rest of the ingredients in a food processor, processing until combined but still chunky. Then shape the patties before placing them in the fridge to become firm. Don't skip this step, or your salmon patties will fall apart.  Once firm, place the patties on a greased air fryer at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray the top of your patties with olive oil spray, then air dry for 10 to 12 minutes, flipping partway through.
