Ingredients

  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs + more if needed
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • salt and pepper
  • 8 oz salmon sliced into 4 "sticks"
  • cooking spray

Instructions

  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees. Meanwhile, setup the egg wash and dredge. In one shallow dish, add the egg and whisk it together with the water. In another shallow dish, add the panko breadcrumbs, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Mix the panko mixture together so the seasonings spread evenly.
  • With one hand, roll a piece of salmon in the egg wash and lay it in the panko mixture. With the other hand, roll the salmon in the panko. Lay on a plate and repeat with the remaining salmon.
  • Spray the bottom of the air fryer tray with cooking spray. Lay out the breaded salmon, spray the tops with cooking spray and cook for 10 minutes. Serve warm.

    • So glad you gave this a try! It's a winnner!
  • I must admit I'm still to try an air fryer, but looking at how deliciously crispy they look I think it's time to invest!
  • Do you think you could do this with an almond flour coating (like you use for eggplant fries)? I’m trying to go low carb and wheat free so attempting to avoid Panko! Also, allergic to salmon, what do you think would be a good sub?
    • While we haven't tried any substitutes, we definitely recommend experimenting with what works best for you. You could always try cod!
  • This is one of the best air fryer recipes I've tried. I can't eat eggs so I dredge in oat milk and then roll in panko. It works perfectly. Thank you so much for such a satisfying recipe!!
