Introducing Air Fryer Bang Bang Salmon, a delectable and nutritious dish that blends the crispy texture of air frying with the irresistible Bang Bang sauce. Below is a recipe along with some helpful notes to guide you through preparing this tantalizing meal.


For the Salmon:

  • 2 salmon fillets (approximately 6-8 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Cooking spray (for greasing the air fryer basket)

For the Bang Bang Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha sauce (adjust to your preferred spice level)
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced


  • Preheat the Air Fryer: Heat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) for approximately 5 minutes.
  • Season the Salmon: Brush olive oil onto the salmon fillets and season both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Prepare the Air Fryer: Lightly coat the air fryer basket with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
  • Air Fry the Salmon: Arrange the salmon fillets in the preheated air fryer basket, skin-side down. Cook for about 10-12 minutes or until desired doneness is reached. Cooking time may vary based on the thickness of the fillets.
  • Make the Bang Bang Sauce: While the salmon cooks, mix mayonnaise, sweet chili sauce, honey, Sriracha sauce, lime juice, and minced garlic in a small bowl until well combined.
  • Serve: Once the salmon is cooked, transfer it to a serving plate and generously drizzle the Bang Bang sauce over the top.
  • Garnish: For added flavor and presentation, garnish your Bang Bang Salmon with fresh chopped cilantro, sliced green onions, or sesame seeds.


  • Salmon Fillet Thickness: Cooking times may fluctuate based on the thickness of your salmon fillets. Adjust the cooking duration accordingly, noting that thicker fillets may necessitate a few additional minutes.
  • Air Fryer Variations: Since air fryer models can differ, both in temperature and cooking time, it’s advisable to refer to your air fryer’s manual for specific instructions.
  • Bang Bang Sauce: Customize the Bang Bang sauce to your liking. Increase Sriracha sauce for more heat or honey for added sweetness. Taste and adjust until it suits your preference.
  • Sides: This dish complements various sides such as steamed rice, roasted vegetables, or a crisp salad.
  • Skin-on vs. Skinless Salmon: Whether you choose skin-on or skinless salmon fillets is a matter of preference. Cooking skin-on salmon in the air fryer can yield crispy skin, adding an extra dimension to the dish.
