For the salmon

  • 2 skin-on salmon fillets about 6 ounces each (similar size + shape if possible)
  • 1/2 tbs avocado oil or olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos
  • 1/2 tsp fine grain sea salt or kosher salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp freshly cracked black pepper or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika powder
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder


  • 1 large mango , peeled and diced
  • 1 medium avocado diced
  • 1/3 cup diced red bell pepper (about 1 small bell pepper)
  • 1/4 red onion finely chopped
  • 1/2 tbsp fresh cilantro finely chopped
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1/2 tsp fine grain sea salt or kosher salt or to taste


  1. Pat salmon dry with a paper towel. Drizzle the salmon with oil and coconut aminots. Season with salt, black pepper, garlic powder, smoked paprika and chili powder. Rub into the salmon fillets. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes, for best results.

  2. Meanwhile, make the salsa by chopping the mango, avocado, bell pepper, onion and cilantro. Add to a bowl along with lime juice and salt and use a fork to mix to combine. Chill in the fridge until ready to serve.

Air Fryer Method

  1. If your air fryer requires preheating, preheat to 380F.
  2. Place the marinated salmon in the air fryer basket.

  3. Cook for 11-12 minutes, or until the salmon is just done.

  4. Transfer salmon to a plate and top with mango salsa and serve with your favorite sides.

  5. *NOTE: cooking time will vary depending on the size / thickness of the salmon as well your air fryer model. Keep an eye on the salmon while cooking to avoid overcooking / burning.

Oven Method

  1. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 400F (see below for air fryer method) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Once the oven is ready, place the baking sheet in the oven and cook for 7-9 minutes, (or more depending on the thickness of the salmon) until the salmon is just done and starts to flake easily. Turn the broiler on high and broil the salmon for another 1 - 1 ½ minute (watching carefully so that it doesn’t burn), until there are a few brown / charred spots.

    Transfer salmon to a plate and top with mango salsa and serve with your favorite sides.

Recipe Notes

How to store

Leftover salmon should be refrigerated in an airtight container. It will stay fresh for up to 3 days. To reheat your salmon fillets, place them on a foil-lined baking sheet and warm them up in a preheated, 275°F oven. Heat the fillets for about 15 minutes, then serve.

How to freeze

Store salmon in a freezer-safe container. Thaw out frozen salmon in the fridge before reheating.

Cooked salmon can be frozen for up to 2 weeks.
