Air Fryer Bang Bang Salmon Bites

Air Fryer Bang Bang Salmon Bites are seasoned pieces of salmon coated in homemade bang bang sauce, cooked in an air fryer, and drizzled with more bang bang sauce. And, for your convenience, you can also bake the salmon bites in the oven.



  • ▢1 ½ pounds salmon, about 4 filets, skins removed, cut into 1-inch bites
  • ▢2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ▢1 teaspoon paprika
  • ▢1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ▢1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ▢½ teaspoon black pepper

Bang Bang Sauce

  • ▢1 cup (232 g) mayonnaise
  • ▢½ cup (132 g) Thai sweet chili sauce
  • ▢2 teaspoons Sriracha, or more to taste
  • ▢2 tablespoons honey
  • ▢chives, for garnish


  • Preheat the air fryer to 390°F.*
  • In a large bowl, combine olive oil, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Add salmon bites and gently toss to coat.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the mayonnaise, Thai sweet chili sauce, Sriracha, and honey. Mix well.
  • Pour half of the Bang Bang sauce into a separate bowl, reserving it for after the salmon has been cooked. Toss the seasoned salmon bites in the remaining sauce.
  • Working in batches, place the salmon bites in an even layer in the basket of your air fryer. (Do not overcrowd.) Air fry for 4-5 minutes. Flip and cook 4-5 minutes more on the opposite side, or until the salmon reaches an internal temperature of 140-145°F.
  • Transfer the salmon to a plate and drizzle with the reserved bang bang sauce.
  • Garnish with chives.

  3. Bake for 16 minutes, flipping halfway through, or until the salmon reaches an internal temperature of 145°F.
  4. Toss the baked salmon bites in the bang bang sauce.
