Hot Honey Glazed Alaska Sockeye Salmon

This is my quick and easy air fryer method that I use for the most delicious salmon every time! All you have to do is season your salmon, place it in the air fryer, prepare your glaze, and enjoy! I use wild Alaska sockeye salmon because it’s so flavorful and delicious. Did you know that all seafood from Alaska is wild and sustainable? It’s even written into the state constitution! Anyway, check out this reel for exactly how I make this honey glazed salmon.

What You'll Need:

+ 4 large Alaska sockeye salmon fillets
+ 1 tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil
+ 1 tsp. Garlic powder
+ ½ tsp. paprika
+ ¼ tsp. Cayenne
+ Salt & pepper to taste
+ Green onions for garnish
+ Sesame seeds for garnish

Hot Honey Glaze:
+ 3 tbsp. soy sauce
+ 6 tbsp. hot honey
+ Juice of 1 lime
+ 4 cloves garlic, grated
+ 1 knob ginger, grated
+ ½ tsp. crushed red pepper
+ 1 tbsp. butter


1. Pat thawed salmon dry, drizzle with olive oil and season with garlic powder, paprika, cayenne, salt & pepper.

2. In a mixing bowl, add soy sauce, hot honey, lime juice, garlic, ginger, and crushed red pepper. Whisk thoroughly to combine.

3. Coat your air fryer basket with oil to prevent sticking. Air fry salmon fillets at 400 degrees for approximately 7 minutes. Be sure to adjust baking time based on thickness of fillets.

4. Meanwhile, in a saucepan over medium heat add butter and sauce mixture. Bring up to a gentle boil and then reduce heat to a medium simmer while continuously stirring. Cook for 3-5 minutes until sauce consistency thickens.

5. Serve and pour hot honey glaze overtop. Garnish with green onions, sesame seeds, and a wedge of lime. Enjoy!

*If using a conventional oven, bake at 425˚ for approximately 9 minutes depending on thickness of fillet.
*You can adjust spice level by swapping hot honey for regular honey, and omitting the cayenne and crushed red pepper.
