How to Prepare Salmon and Asparagus Before Air Frying Them?
To begin, prepare the dill and parsley combination that will be used to coat the salmon and asparagus. Whisk together the dill, parsley, lemon juice, oil, and salt & pepper in a small bowl—coat salmon in ¾ of this marinade.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and the asparagus. Then add the asparagus to your air fryer, spread it out evenly on the bottom, and set the timer for 11 minutes. After 3 minutes, place the salmon on top and cook for 8 more minutes. It’s just that simple!
Note: Cooking time also depends on the thickness of your salmon fillets and how you want your fish prepared.
What’s the Best Way to Keep Asparagus from Sticking to The Air Fryer?
The only natural technique to air-frying asparagus is patting it down and spraying it with a light coating of olive oil. All you need is a teaspoon. That’s one of the advantages of using an air fryer: you don’t need a lot of oil.
