2 wild salmon fillets, approximately 6 ounces each

Salt and pepper to taste

1 clove garlic

2 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil

2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

Zest of one lemon

1 lemon quartered

2 teaspoons agave

1/3 cup pistachios, coarsely chopped

1/3 cup walnut nuts, coarsely chopped

1 teaspoon fresh thyme

1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped

¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper


  1. Rinse salmon and pat dry. In a small bowl whisk together 1 teaspoon EVOO, mustard, lemon juice, 1 teaspoon of agave, salt and pepper and rub evenly on top and sides of salmon.
  2. In a small prep place nuts, thyme, rosemary, red chili pepper flakes, garlic, remaining EVOO and lemon zest. Pulse until coarsely ground. Spread the mixture evenly over the salmon and press lightly using your fingers to create a nice crust.
  3. Put air fryer at 350 and place salmon fillets along with lemon wedges rubbed with remaining agave and a pinch of crushed chili flakes. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes for medium-rare.
