A plate with roasted salmon with sautéed balsamic vinaigrette.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4


3 tsp. olive oil
4 salmon fillets (6 oz. each)
1 to 1 ½ tsps. reduced-sodium seafood seasoning
¼ tsp. pepper
1 garlic clove, sliced

6 small tomatoes, seeded and cut into ½-in. pieces
½ cup balsamic vinegar


  1. Heat air fryer to 450°.
  2. Rub 1 tsp. olive oil over both sides of the salmon and then sprinkle with seafood seasoning and pepper.
  3. Cook the salmon until it begins to flake easily with a fork, about 10 to 12 minutes.

  7. Divide the mixture evenly onto four separate plates.
  8. In a small saucepan, bring vinegar to a boil and cook until it is reduced by half (about 2 to 3 minutes). Immediately remove from heat.
  9. Place cooked salmon over spinach mixture and then drizzle with the balsamic glaze.
  10. Enjoy!
