Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup rinsed jasmine rice
  • 1 ¾ cup water for the rice
  • pinch of salt for the rice
  • 2, 4 oz salmon filets — cut into cubes
  • 1 tablespoon honey dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon avocado oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • teaspoon garlic powder
  • teaspoon paprika
  • 5-6 cucumber slices
  • ½ diced avocado
  • tablespoon of fresh finely chopped parsley dill, or cilantro are optional for garnish
  • sesame seeds are optional for garnish
  • drizzle of spicy mayo or mayoracha

Instructions
 

  • Cook the rice as per the package instructions on the stove or in a rice cooker. Set it aside.
  • With a knife cut the 4 oz salmon pieces into 2 inch cubes.
  • Add them to a bowl and add the honey dijon mustard, avocado oil, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder and with clean hands mix it very well but be gentle so that you don’t break any of the pieces.
  • Add it to the air-fryer and air-fry at 350F for 6-8 minutes or until fully cooked.
  • Add the rice to a bowl with the crispy salmon on top, cucumber slices, diced avocado, and drizzle on some spicy mayo or any sauce you enjoy.
  • Garnish with some sesame seeds, herbs of choice and enjoy.

Notes

Feel free to use any seasonings to taste, you are more than welcome to make your own spicy mayo by mixing mayo with sriracha or any hot sauce you like. Check on the salmon because the time will depend on how thick the pieces are. It can take anywhere from 7-10 minutes so feel free to take it out a little bit sooner if needed. If you cannot find honey Dijon mustard you can simply use regular Dijon mustard or even mix regular Dijon mustard with a little bit of honey or agave. You are more than welcome to sear the salmon pieces in a pan on the stove or even bake it in the oven. Bake at 400F until it flakes off as it will depend on the oven.

    So easy and tasty, we have made this twice this week. Nutritious, filling, and a reason to use the air fryer – what’s not to love! Added chopped red onion for more veggies. Thanks for the recipe!
