I have been air frying fish for as long as I remember, well, since I got my air fryer back in 2018 but just know I came out with the inspiration of making a crispy everything bagel seasoning salmon recipe.
The easiest Avocado Prosciutto Wrapped Salmon:
This recipe is super super easy to make and it took me just a few minutes to prepare, get ready your ingredients and preheat your oven! You can make these crispy salmon steaks in your air fryer or in your oven.
So we are using wild-caught salmon here, with skin but that’s up to you! I love a good crispy salmon skin so I kept it. We are adding our seasonings, and a touch of cilantro… why not? It adds a great touch. For the magic, we are including some Kurobuta & Duroc Prosciutto from True Story Foods… epic, flavorful, perfect!
This recipe is perfect as a side dish at a party, for lunch, for a protein source at dinner or even as a snack since it's so filling and great to prepare in batches. This recipe is also whole 30; that means that it's gluten and dairy free, and no sugar or inflammatory oils, this recipe is also keto!
The Ingredients for this Avocado Prosciutto Wrapped Salmon:
Sustainably Raised Salmon
Vegetables to Serve
As you can see the ingredients are pretty basic! And trust me, this is good because this recipe is addicting. I used avocado, Kurobuta & Duroc Prosciutto (or your favorite prosciutto), fresh cilantro and seasonings to add flavor to this salmon recipe. The cilantro here adds that personal Mexican touch I love an it really amps up the flavor!
Air fryer or not, the crispness will be there!
For this recipe I used my air fryer but you can also use your oven, if it has the option to "roast" use that setting of your oven and voila! In the instructions for both methods are actually the same.
I have a oven air fryer and a regular air fryer; for this recipe I used the oven one, for this recipe I simply set it up in 350F for 30 minutes. In my regular air fryer I tend to use more time though. Check out the timing and temperature, you can constantly check how crispy it looks from time to time while it cooks but it tuna is a very noble meat to cook, it's very quick.
Nutritional benefits of this recipe:
Salmon is a great source of protein, healthy omega-3's that have anti-inflammatory properties plus it's a great source of antioxidants. So this is healthy brain, healthy body recipes!
Avocados are one of my favorite super foods, I'm a nutritionist and firm believer that an avocado a day or couple days a week will keep some nutrients on check; vitamin E, potassium, vitamin K... it actually contains around 20 nutrients!
The full list of ingredients, along with the instructions and portions will be below! This is a very versatile recipe!
