Air Fryer Salmon and Asparagus for One

If you haven't given salmon a try in the Air Fryer yet, I hope you will soon. This is such a lovely recipe to keep on hand! Depending on the size of your air fryer, you could certainly make more of this at a time, but the Ninja fryer I have fit this amount just right. 

You can have a wonderful, healthy, and delicious salmon and asparagus meal in a complete flash. And since fish thaws so quickly this is something you can decide last minute to make. The sauce is lightly sweet and tangy, and adds a terrific complement to the texture and flavor of the tender fish.

Air Fryer Salmon and Asparagus for One


1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
⅛ teaspoon ground paprika
⅛ teaspoon salt
⅛ teaspoon black pepper
1 (6 ounce) fillet salmon fillet, thawed if frozen and patted dry
½ pound fresh asparagus, trimmed

  1. Stir together honey, olive oil, mustard, paprika, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Whisk well to form a slightly thick sauce.
  2. Brush about 1/2 of the marinade all over both sides of the salmon fillet and place it into the air fryer basket. Air-fry at 400 degrees F for 4 minutes.
  3. Open the basket and place the asparagus around the fillet as best you can, being careful not to cover it. Brush remaining sauce all over the asparagus and on top of the salmon fillet.
  4. Air-fry at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) until salmon is cooked through and asparagus is tender, 6 to 7 more minutes.


  1. That sounds delicious!!! Saving that recipe for sure. Just need to get my hands on some salmon. LOL
