Ingredients needed for Peanut Butter Fish – Air Fryer Spicy Salmon

Atlantic salmon filet, creamy peanut butter, brown sugar, garlic powder, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, oil of choice, salt, lemon juice, and red crushed pepper.

Salmon. I prefer salmon with skin on, as the fillet holds together well. 

Method –


First, dry the salmon with a paper towel. Second using shears chop them to 4 to 5 inch pieces. Third, in a mixing bowl add in creamy peanut butter, brown sugar, garlic powder, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, oil of choice, salt, lemon juice, and red crushed pepper. Mix well. Further, add in the salmon and mix it well in the marinade. Let it coat well and let it sit in the marinade for 30 minutes to an hour covered. Additionally you can also marinate it overnight in the refrigerator. I typically marinate it for 30 minutes.

AIR FRY

Also, I line my Air fryer basket with aluminum foil. Poke holes in the aluminum foil, so the air circulates easily. Further, when you are ready to cook, grease the aluminum foil in the  Air Fryer  basket with oil or cooking spray. 

Make sure to grease well or else the fish will get stuck and break. I used fish with skin so that worked great.

Air Fry at 400 Fahrenheit or 200 Celsius for 15 minutes, flip them over at 10 minute mark. Don’t overcoat the basket with the fish filet. Furthermore, every air fryer is different so check after the 15-minute mark. You can increase or decrease the time as per your liking.

Pan version –

First, heat 1 tbsp oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Second, cook the salmon, skin side up, until golden and crisp, about 4 minutes. Also, do not move the filets as they cook. Further, carefully flip the fillets and reduce the heat to medium. Continue cooking until done to your liking, 4 to 5 minutes more.
