Unlike salmon fillet, some salmon steaks may contain small bones. If so be mindful when serving it to small children.
Can I air bake the salmon steaks? Yes, follow the same steps and instead of air frying the salmon, bake the salmon on 400 degrees for no more than 20 minutes. Can you add the salmon steaks in foil prior to putting it in the air fryer? Yes!
Cooking the salmon in the air fryer allows the salmon to come out so much crispier than it would in the oven. Place each salmon in individual foil. Add the marinating juice and seal. Place the foils in the air fryer and cook as advised. Be mindful that the salmon will not come out crispy as the steam will not allow it.
