Chef Notes:

Jazz up your BBQ Salmon dish by inviting some green guests to the party. Say hello to broccoli, a verdant veggie known for its high fiber content and rich array of vitamins. Not only does it add a vibrant splash of color to your plate, but it also brings a delightful crunch that pairs perfectly with the soft salmon.

But wait, there's more! For all you keto-enthusiasts out there, we've got just the thing for you. Introduce keto-friendly noodles into the mix. These low-carb wonders are not only delicious but also packed with fiber and protein, helping to keep you full and satisfied while sticking to your diet goals.

And here's a cheeky little tip for you - give your BBQ Salmon a snazzy makeover by showering it with some sesame seeds right before it hits the plate. Consider them the tiny, crunchy fireworks that'll add a pop of fun to your seafood soiree!

And let's not forget about our star player - the low-fat, no-added-sugar Hungry Squirrel BBQ sauce. This culinary secret weapon is a flavor powerhouse with a mere 2 net carbs.


  1. Start by gently patting the salmon dry using paper towels and place it on a clean plate. This ensures that the salmon retains all its juicy goodness.

  2. Next, season the salmon with a generous sprinkle of onion powder and smoked paprika on top. Gently massage these spices into the salmon, letting every fiber absorb the rich flavors. Follow this up with a dash of salt and pepper.

  3. Lavishly coat the salmon with Hungry Squirrel BBQ sauce. For an extra tangy kick, feel free to mix the BBQ sauce with mustard. Spread this mixture evenly over the top of the salmon, ensuring every inch is covered in this mouth-watering marinade.

  4. Before you place the salmon in the air fryer basket, make sure to either brush or spray it with oil. This prevents the salmon from sticking to the basket and makes clean-up a breeze. Alternatively, you can also use air fryer parchment paper.

  5. Now, place your seasoned and sauced salmon in the air fryer basket. Set your air fryer to 400 degrees and let it work its magic for 6-8 minutes, or until the salmon is perfectly cooked through. At the halfway mark, take a moment to brush an additional tablespoon of Hungry Squirrel BBQ Sauce all over each fillet, adding another layer of flavor.

  6. Once done, plate your masterpiece AND enjoy!
