Air Fried Salmon with Grelos/Broccoli Rabe

I love the beautiful colors and simple flavors of one of my favorite dishes. So healthy, delicious and easy to make. You can make this with or without the potatoes. I often serve the salmon with a fresh salad for a lite lunch. One of my favorite Portuguese wines; Mateus Rose or Vinho Verde or white wine pairs perfectly with this dish.


2 (6-8 oz) portion salmon

2 white potatoes

2 sweet potatoes

2 hard boiled eggs (optional)

1 lb fresh broccoli rabe

olive oil

red or white wine vinegar



Peel and slice potatoes into 1/2 rounds and cook in salted water for about 15 minutes or until cooked. Drain and set aside.

Wash broccoli rabe and cut the bunch in half or thirds. Cook in salted boiling water for about 15 minutes or until tender. Drain and set aside.
Meanwhile, brush salmon with a little olive oil, and season with salt, pepper and and lemon juice. Place in air fryer with thin lemon slices on top. Cook at 400 degrees F for about 8 minutes.

Serve salmon with a few slices of potatoes, brocolli rabe and egg.

Drizzle with olive oil and a little vinegar.

Don’t forget the wine of course!
