FAQs:

What air fryer do you use?

This isn’t the exact one that I use just a newer model but I love it!

Can I cook the salmon on the stove top?

Yes! I love the crisp it gets in the air fryer but you can also cook this on the stove top using a little extra virgin olive oil.

How do you make pickled onions?

Pickled onions add the best flavor to everything, but especially to this burger bowl! Start by chopping up the red onion in half and then into some thin “C” slices. Set aside to make the brine. Take 6oz of water and set to a boil on the stove. Put in 1 tbsp salt with 1 tbsp white sugar into the mason jar with red onion. Pour in the boiled water and then fill the rest of the jar with white vinegar. Place lid on mason jar and give it a spin to let onions soak it up. Store in the fridge for the week!
