Notes

Storage: Air fried salmon will keep well in an airtight container for up to 3 days. 
Freezing Instructions: Freeze the pieces of salmon in an airtight container or freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge overnight before you use it.
Equipment: I recommend the Skinnytaste by Vremi Air Fryer and the NuWave Air Fryer (Amazon affiliate links). The Skinnytaste one is easier to clean and has higher watts (1700 vs 1300), but both are excellent.
Nutritional Data: The information below is an automated estimate and could vary based on cooking methods and ingredients used. It is for the salmon only and does not include the green beans.
