Air-Fryer Orange Salmon with Avocado Salsa

Salmon and orange pair beautifully together, and here we use the citrus in two ways. First, orange marmalade and Dijon mustard make a tangy-sweet glaze for the fish. Then, a salsa made with avocado, scallion and orange segments finishes the dish for a pop of freshness and color.

Active Time:

Total Time:
25 mins


  • 4 skin-on salmon fillets (4 to 6 ounces each)

  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 2 scallions, trimmed

  • 3 tablespoons orange marmalade

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • 2 oranges

  • 1 avocado, diced


  1. Preheat air fryer to 400℉. Coat a sheet of foil with cooking spray. Pat salmon dry; sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  2. Mince white parts of scallions, then thinly slice green parts; set the green parts aside. Combine the scallion whites, marmalade, mustard and crushed red pepper to taste in a small bowl.

  3. Arrange the salmon, skin-side down, in a single layer on the foil. Brush tops and sides with the marmalade glaze. Transfer the salmon on the foil to the air-fryer basket. Cook until the fish flakes easily with a fork, 10 to 14 minutes (or 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness).

  4. Meanwhile, suprême oranges into a medium bowl (see Tip). Squeeze the juice from the orange membranes into the bowl. Add avocado and the reserved sliced scallion greens. Serve the salmon with the salsa.


Air fryer


To suprême oranges, cut a thin slice off the top and bottom with a large sharp knife. Place the orange on a cutting board; remove the peel and the white pith below, following the curve of the fruit as you go. Working over a bowl, switch to a small sharp knife and cut each segment from the surrounding membranes.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
