Air Fryer Jerk Salmon

  • 2 salmon filets
  • 2 Tbsp DIY jerk seasoning below
  • drizzle of oil
  • 2 lemons sliced

DIY Jerk Seasoning

  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp ground allspice
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes
  • ½ tsp cayenne to taste
  • 2 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp coconut sugar

Air Fryer Veggies

  • cups baby potatoes whole
  • 15 asparagus spears cut to fit air fryer basket
  • drizzle of oil
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste


  • In a bowl or jar, combine all jerk seasonings and mix well to integrate. (Store in a jar to keep DIY spice rub for later use!)
  • Brush each salmon filet with oil (optional). Sprinkle jerk seasoning onto each filet.
  • To prepare veggies, add baby potatoes and asparagus spears into separate bowls. Drizzle each with oil and toss with seasonings to coat.
  • Preheat air fryer to 380°F (195°C).
  • Once preheated, add potatoes into air fryer and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Next, add asparagus into air fryer and cook for 4 more minutes.
  • Finally, place salmon into air fryer on top of asparagus, layering a few lemon slices on top of each filet. Cook for 6 more minutes. (If desired, you can turn down the heat slightly when cooking your salmon, depending on how you like it cooked.)
  • While salmon cooks, prepare mango salsa. (See next recipe below.)
  • Serve jerk salmon and veggies on a plate, top with mango salsa, and enjoy!
