Air Fryer Blackened Salmon Recipe Keto

Healthy lifestyle changes are often difficult and can be boring when it comes to limited food choices.  Last year, I spent some time getting familiar with the keto lifestyle and I have seen some significant results, then the holidays happened and I gave up. I literally stopped trying. I’m trying to slowly warm my way back up, by doing keto and intermittent fasting. So, if you’re on the fence like me, then this keto cajun salmon is all you need to take your dinner from drab to fab.

How to Make Blackened Salmon

To make this blackened salmon, I recommend preheating your air fryer and spray it with oil. I don’t use the store-bought cooking spray, instead, I bought this and filled it with oil. It helps keeps the salmon from sticking to the pan. 

Now drizzle the salmon with olive oil, rub generously with the seasoning, and air fry for about 7 – 10 minutes.

Blackened Seasoning

You might be wondering what the difference is between blackened seasoning and cajun, honestly, I have seen it being used interchangeably. However, I am not an expert but here is what I do.  For one, blackened seasoning consists of paprika, onion, basil, cumin, chili powder, garlic and sometimes thyme. With this mix, there is a bit of heat but nothing you can’t handle.
