Making these air fryer salmon bites is incredibly easy and anyone can do it! Plus, it's fail-proof and can be on your dinner table in no time.
One important step in the recipe is removing the skin from the salmon, but you can skip this extra task by purchasing skinless salmon.
You can remove the skin on the salmon by placing the salmon fillet on a flat cutting board with the flesh side up. Then, run your knife at an angle slightly down along the top of the skin to detach it from the flesh.
Slowly but firmly run your knife through the skin avoiding the flesh (you should only scrape through the fish and not cut into it). Gently, grip the skin by its edge and pull away steadily.
