This recipe sounded interesting. I wasn’t sure if my little would eat the sauce on it, but turns out we all really liked it. I served the salmon bites on mashed potatoes which worked out good with the extra sauce. Be sure you let the sauce sit a few minutes before you serve them other wise it will be really thin.

Salmon
2 salmon filets (6 ounces each), skin removed
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice, 1-2 limes, squeezed
½ teaspoon garlic, minced
½ teaspoon paprika
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper

Garlic Cream Sauce
4 tablespoons (½ stick) unsalted butter
¼ cup (59.5g) heavy cream
2 tablespoons garlic, minced
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper

Preheat the air fryer to 390°F. Spray the basket of the air fryer with nonstick cooking spray.

Use a paper towel to pat the salmon filets dry. Use a sharp knife to cut each filet into 1-inch squares.

In a medium bowl combine olive oil, lime juice, garlic, paprika, salt, and pepper.

Pour the mixture over the salmon bites and gently toss to coat.

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 repeat on the opposite side, or until the salmon reaches an internal temperature of 140-145°F. Place the cooked salmon in a bowl.

While the salmon is cooking, prepare the garlic sauce.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add butter, heavy cream, garlic, parsley, salt, and pepper. Stir together until the butter is melted and the mixture is fully combined and heated through (4-5 minutes).

Pour the garlic cream sauce over salmon bites and serve over mashed potatoes or rice.
