How To Make a Low Carb Miso Salmon
- Whisk. In a small bowl combine Truvia, soy sauce, hot water, miso, garlic, ginger and pepper. Whisk to combine. If you are not keto/low carb, use brown sugar.
- Cover. Place salmon fillets on a plate. Pour half the sauce over the fillets, flip them over, and cover the other side of the salmon with the sauce.
- Cook. Spray air fryer basket with nonstick vegetable oil spray. Place the sauce-covered salmon into the air fryer basket. Set fryer to 400°F for 12 minutes. Halfway through, brush additional miso sauce on top.
- Finish. Top fillets with sesame seeds and scallions.
Tips & Tricks For Making Perfect Air Fryer Miso Salmon
- Air Frying. Air fryers make the best seafood ever, and they do so without making your whole house smell like fish.
- Test the Temp. The best way to know if seafood is done enough is to use a meat thermometer. Salmon is done when it reaches an internal temperature of 145F.
- Tongs. You also want silicone-tipped tongs so that you don't inadvertently tear the seafood as you try to turn it.
- Marinating. Don't marinate the fish for too long otherwise, it gets a little bit mealy. I'd say no more than 30 minutes at the outside, but ideally, 5-10 minutes is more than enough.
- Leftovers. You can use any leftovers in a salad or over rice if you aren't keto.
- Subs. You can also use any type of thick fish steaks with the same marinade.
- Oven. For making in an oven, cook at 400 F for 12 minutes and then broil for 1-2 minutes until the top is crispy.

LOVE this recipe! Super easy to make. But for some reason my fish didn't try out crunchy? Am I doing it right? lol
Please help - i bought white miso paste for this - recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of miso - is that straight paste or do you add water? If so how much? Your recipe is unclear about it
Yes! It's the white miso paste. I'll link to the one I use in the recipe card to make it easier to understand. Thanks for lettting me know!
Thanks - but my question about adding water or using straight paste was not answered
How much is water is used?
I’d give this a hundred stars if I could. This was the best salmon recipe I’ve ever had!
Yass!! I’m so so happy to hear this
I made the sauce with brown sugar and served the salmon on Thai style bagged chopped salad. The fish was delicious and the combination of the salmon and the Thai salad was phenomenal. I highly recommend this recipe.
You mention hot water for the sauce, but you don't say how much hot water. Can you clarify that please?
This was so good I wanted to lick my plate!
