Air Fryer Salmon Bites Recipe With Creamy Cilantro Yogurt Sauce

"Crispy roasted salmon bites with a flavorful creamy cilantro yogurt sauce, ready in less than 15 minutes," says Rachel Maser, mom of four and founder/creator of the clean eating blog, Clean Food Crush®. "These are incredibly tasty for a quick snack idea (think post-workout protein boost!) or secretly healthier game day treats to serve to your guests! They’re so good they will be devoured by even those who typically reach for the indulgent/highly processed party foods first, so skip the bag of processed chicken bites. Set these out instead and accept all compliments that pour in!"

Or make a dinner out of these easy, healthy salmon bites. "Pair them with some brown rice or quinoa and your favorite steamed vegetables. So dang good and easy to make, you’re going to love these lil’ salmon bites!" Garnish your roasted salmon bites with green onions and serve next to the cilantro-yogurt sauce and chopped cucumber, if desired.

Recipe Notes

  • Be sure to preheat your air fryer before cooking.
  • You could use avocado oil instead of olive oil.
  • You can use regular flour if you're not watching your gluten.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. To cook the salmon bites in the oven, put the salmon onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with the seasonings, flour and a drizzle of olive oil. Toss to coat. Arrange them in a single layer. Bake in a preheated 400-degree F oven for about 10 to 12 minutes, or until flaky and golden.
  2. To cook the salmon bites in an air fryer, toss the salmon with the seasonings, flour and a drizzle of olive oil. Preheat the air fryer to 390 degrees F. Put the salmon into the air fryer basket and cook for 8 minutes, flipping them over halfway through. 
  3. While the salmon bites bake, in a small food processor add all of the sauce ingredients. Blend until smooth.
