This air fryer sriracha salmon is spicy and juicy and it sits on top of crispy fried rice. The whole meal comes together in less than 30 minutes.
I’ve made Instant Pot dinners, air fryer chicken dinners, and now I have this air fryer salmon dinner for you to hack your weeknight meals with. There’s something about not turning on the oven that just speaks to me.
I promise I’m not usually a gadget person, but the air fryer gets things so crispy. On nights when I bring home a nice, thick piece of wild caught salmon, I usually just cook it in the air fryer and whip up a few easy sides. But then I thought, “why don’t I make a whole meal with salmon in the air fryer”.
To make the fried rice, you just take cooked rice and frozen, mixed vegetables and throw them in the bottom of the air fryer with some seasoning and soy sauce. After 5-6 minutes, it gets nice and crispy. Dump it out in a bowl and slide the salmon, which gets covered with sriracha, soy, and honey, into the air fryer and cook until crispy.
That’s it! I promise it’s going to save your life (and your tastebuds).
