You won't believe how good these Air-fried Salmon bellies are. Seriously they're one of the best things you can make in your air-fryer. I do it with Thai flavors with a good amount of chilies and garlic. Please try the recipe cause I know you're going to love these.
Add garlic cloves and Thai red chilies to the mortar and pestle. Pound into a rough paste. Then add the rest of the ingredients except Salmon bellies and mix well until the palm sugar dissolves.*
Transfer the marinade to a large bowl. Add salmon bellies to the bowl and mix with the marinade using tongs. Let it sit for about 15 - 20 mins. If you're going to marinate it longer, then put the bowl in the fridge.
Preheat the air-fryer for about 2 mins at 390F. Arrange salmon bellies in a single layer (You might have to do this in 2 - 3 batches depending on how big your air-fryer is). Air fry for 5 - 7 mins or until salmon bellies are completely cooked.
