This recipe has been a staple in the Tila house for years. Sweet chili sauce is a quick way to perk up plain salmon and asparagus. The sauce is the perfect balance of sweet, salt, spicy and tangy, and it’s naturally gluten free, to boot. I prefer brands made in Thailand. To make this a complete meal, serve it with brown rice or quinoa.



  1. Preheat your air fryer to 375 to 390 degrees F on the fan setting, if available.
  2. Place your salmon and asparagus in a large bowl.  Sprinkle with the seasoned salt and pepper and toss to coat well.  Pour in 1/2 cup of the sweet chili sauce (reserve the rest for glazing) and stir to coat well.
  3. Arrange the salmon and asparagus in the air fryer so that nothing touches.
  4. Air fry the salmon and asparagus for 6 to 10 minutes, or until they’re browned on top and cooked through in the center.
  5. Transfer the salmon and asparagus to a serving vessel and pour the reserved 1/2 cup sweet chili sauce over the top. Garnish with the scallions and serve with brown rice or quinoa.

Cook’s Note

If necessary, check the label to be sure your sweet chili sauce was processed in a gluten-free facility.
