WHAT IS AN AIR FRYER?
An air fryer is a small kitchen appliance that cooks by circulating hot air around food by using a convection mechanism. It’s typically found as a standalone appliance, but some ovens have this feature built in now.
It’s no secret these small appliances have become poplar among home cooks as they provide a healthy alternative to deep frying and serve as a multipurpose cooker. Not to mention much easier clean-up.
What should I look for when buying salmon?
Look for salmon that is bright and saturated in color, it shouldn’t be dull or have brown spots on the flesh or bruises on the skin. Salmon should smell like it’s from the sea but should not smell fishy or sour.
What is a dry rub?
A dry rub is a mixture of dry ingredients that are rubbed onto the surface of meats before cooking to add flavor.
