This recipe literally takes 20 minutes to prepare and make. It is quick, easy, healthy and tastes – so what’s not to like?
Mr M purchased an air fryer last year and I have to admit we don’t use it often enough. We do cook our salmon this way and it always tastes delicious and perfectly cooked in 18 minutes.
Why is it healthy?
All of the ingredients are staples in the diet of people living in Blue Zones, which are areas where people live longer and with lower rates of disease.
Salmon – rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids which have been shown to reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure, and decrease risk factors for disease.
Bok Choy – full of cancer-fighting compounds such as vitamins C and E, beta-carotene, folate, and selenium.
Chilli – improves digestive health and metabolism
Garlic – boosts immunity, anti-inflammatory, improves cardio-vascular health
Ginger – medicinal properties, may help with osteroarthritis, settles the stomach (nausea), improves heart disease risk
Olive Oil – rich in healthy monosaturated fats with strong anti-inflammatory properties
Air Fryer Salmon with Steamed Bok Choy in Chilli, Ginger & Garlic Sauce
2 x Salmon steaks with skin on – we actually prefer the tail
1 x Bunch Bok Choy or any similar asian greens
1/2 teaspoon each – minced chilli, ginger & garlic – or to taste. I think I could have used a little more ginger as the flavour was subtle
Preheat AirFryer at 190C
Rub Salmon steaks with a little olive oil and season
Add to Air Fryer, skin up and cook for 18 minutes
Prepare bok choy – cut into pieces
Mix Spices in olive oil to combine about 1/4 cup
At 5 minutes before Salmon ready
Steam Bok Choy
