Ninja Foodi Salmon

After a quick 20-30 minute marinade, the salmon is then air fried in the Ninja Foodi. Or any air fryer of choice!

I’m pretty obsessed with our Ninja Foodi and love the quick & easy meals that I can throw together for my family on busy weeknights.

Salmon Marinade Recipe

Putting together a quick marinade for this salmon recipe really gives it a delicious boost of flavor.

We like ours slightly sweet with honey and use coconut aminos instead of a traditional soy sauce. It gives it a little bit of a salty sweet combination that makes for the perfect salmon.

A few simple things like salt, garlic powder, ginger powder, and honey round out the remaining ingredients.

And all that remains is to toss it gently together with the salmon in a large bowl or large plastic bag for marinating.

Simply let it hang out to marinate in the fridge for about 20-30 minutes before air crisping.

This easy air crisp salmon recipe is simply made in a Ninja Foodi or any air fryer. It is packed with flavor from an easy & delicious marinade.


  • 3-4 salmon portions (6 oz each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • 1 tablespoon honey


  1. Whisk the salt, ginger powder, garlic powder, coconut aminos, and honey until all of the ingredients are well combined and honey is dissolved.
  2. Using either a large glass bowl or large plastic bag, pour over salmon portions and seal. Allow to marinade for about 20-30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  3. Remove the salmon portions from the marinade and place inside of the air crisp basket of the Ninja Foodi or other air fryer. (see note)
  4. Set to the Air Crisp function on the Foodi, the temperature to 390 degrees F.
  5. Air fry for about 12 minutes or until salmon is cooked through. The salmon should be flakey and internal read temperature of 145 degrees.
  6. Serve & enjoy!


Tip: to prevent the salmon from sticking to the basket, I line mine with parchment paper. Plus, it also makes for easy cleanup!

Also, 3 of the 6 oz portions fit perfectly inside of the Ninja Foodi Air Crisp basket. This is the amount we use most for our family of 6 since my children eat such small portions. If making 4 portions of salmon, I will make two at a time in the Foodi to prevent overcrowding.

Hello Mary,

I have all the ingredients on hand except for coconut aminos. I do have the soy sauce, though. Any idea how much soy sauce I should use?

Hey Liz, That’s a really good question! I haven’t used soy sauce in quite some time and have not tested it out in the recipe. So I’m not sure how salty it would make the salmon. I know that coconut aminos is milder in flavor and has a slightly sweet taste. I think that if you were to just substitute it, I wouldn’t use too much or it may be salty. I hope this helps. -Mary
