For some reason I chose salmon for the maiden voyage, but here we go! – Scotty
So lovely Liz got me an air-fryer for my birthday a few weeks back, and I finally got it going!
I went with salmon because it was handy. I don’t particularly like salmon, but I eat it pretty regularly. That finished dish you see in the picture was a staple as I lost 150 pounds. Sam’s Club frozen salmon, frozen broccoli, and microwavable brown rice. I don’t love the meal but I lost the weight so, mission accomplished!

I used this recipe from YouTube, but it was really simple.
- While the air-fryer is heating, I mixed 2 teaspoons of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, and some garlic. I just spooned it on the salmon, then salt & peppered it.
- After the fryer was hot, I sprayed cooking spray in the basket.
- It went 7 minutes at 400 degrees, simple!
- I thawed the salmon overnight in the fridge, but it seems pretty easy to do if you’re starting frozen too.
I microwaved a handful of frozen broccoli with water for 5 minutes, and the Minute Rice took…a minute.
Voila! Super easy, super healthy dinner!
I’m anxious now to cook something in the fryer that I actually want to eat! Gonna try some chicken thighs next…
