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.

  • 10 cloves of garlic
  • 4 Thai Red chilies (Thai green chilies works too)
  • 4 tablespoons Palm sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Fish sauce
  • 3 tablespoons Oyster sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon Toasted sesame oil
  • 1.5 pounds Salmon belly strips
  1. Make the Marinade

    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.*

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  • If you use palm sugar that comes in blocks, then shave it with a knife before you measure. This also helps the sugar to dissolve quickly with the rest of the ingredients.
