Frozen Salmon Air Fryer
As I write this, I have just had delivery of my frozen food from Iceland. I am loving living back in England and having access to all the amazing frozen food.
But what excites me most in Iceland, isn’t the frozen chicken wings, it is fruit and vegetables.
But there is one frozen vegetable that comes above all of those, that I had six bags delivered to my front door this morning and that was their frozen trimmed green beans.
I love them most because they are the fastest cooking frozen vegetable that I have ever air fried.
You can season your frozen green beans in the air fryer and they are like crispy heaven and cook at the same time in the same air fryer basket as frozen salmon.
You then have a fantastic lunch of frozen salmon and green beans for lunch.
Its nice and healthy, its light and perfect for you to then get back to work and not feel like you are in a carb coma.
Today I wanted to show you how you too can cook frozen salmon in air fryer alongside green beans and why it will become your new favourite go to healthy air fryer frozen meal.

Can You Cook Salmon In An Air Fryer?
Yes, you sure can. Salmon in the air fryer is amazing and is also an easier way to cook salmon. You can also reduce the oil if you are on WW or SW because you don’t need any extra virgin olive oil like you would if cooking salmon in a frying pan.
Can You Cook Frozen Salmon In An Air Fryer?
Yes, you sure can and you will love air fryer salmon from frozen. You can use any brand of frozen salmon and can even do it with marinated salmon.
The first time I tried air fryer frozen salmon was with lemon pepper salmon fillets. I simply placed them into an air fryer baking dish and air fried them in their packaging.
Here is our air fryer lemon pepper salmon:
Can You Air Fry Salmon With Skin?
Yes, you sure can and we have done this a lot when we have bought our air fryer salmon frozen from Aldi.
They sell delicious packs of 2 salmon fillets with their skin in the fresh fish section. I will then save them in the freezer for when I want to cook them and then cook the salmon from frozen.
Then we will peel the skin off the salmon just before serving.
Do You Have To Flip Salmon In Air Fryer?
Yes, it is recommended that you flip your salmon in the air fryer, halfway through the cook time.
This gives the perfect texture all over your salmon and makes it taste like grilled salmon.
Plus, if you are cooking vegetables at the same time, then it’s a good opportunity to check on them and turn them if they need turning too.

Air Fryer Frozen Salmon Ingredients
Salmon – You can use any frozen salmon. Though note, if it is marinated, you will need to place it in a container in your air fryer, otherwise you will have sauce going everywhere!
Veggies – This is optional of course, but its great to combine green beans and salmon at the same time. You then have a meal, rather than having to figure out what you are going to serve with your salmon fillets.
Spray – I also recommend a spray bottle filled with extra virgin olive oil. Don’t use frylight or pam because it ruins the air fryer.
Lemon – I also recommend some lemon which you can cook in the air fryer with the salmon. You can then squeeze it on the salmon when it is cooked. It also gives a fantastic flavour to your salmon.
Then for the kitchen gadgets that we have used in this air fryer frozen salmon fillet recipe it has just been our Philips Air Fryer XL. We have this one and its wonderful for many types of air fryer recipes.
Plus, we recommend you head over to our air fryer recipes category as we have more than 500 tried and tested air fryer recipes and have been air frying for 10 years.
How To Cook Frozen Salmon In Air Fryer?

- Cook. Air fry your frozen salmon fillets and green beans for 8 minutes.
- Turn. Next flip your salmon and also shake your green beans. Add extra virgin olive oil spray to your green beans and cook for a further 7 minutes.

And I am sure you can see now how easy it is cooking frozen salmon in air fryer as and why it has become one of my favourite frozen foods.
How Long To Cook Frozen Salmon In Air Fryer?
The frozen salmon air fryer cook time is JUST 15 minutes. This is for up to 4 frozen salmon fillets as well as your frozen green beans.
I am a big fan of being able to cook a full meal at the same time in the air fryer basket. Just like with our air fryer sausage and chips, air fryer frozen fish and chips and our air fryer harvest casserole.
But what I recommend you do, is always study the cook times, and then see what you can fit into the air fryer at the same time.
Air Fryer Salmon & Broccoli
Plus, just like I have mentioned above, you can also do air fryer salmon and broccoli too. Just swap the green beans for broccoli and give the frozen broccoli a 5 minute head start.
