  1. Step 1

    Preheat air fryer to 180°C. Combine the almond meal, grated parmesan, chopped basil and garlic in a bowl. Add butter. Use your fingertips to rub butter into basil mixture until combined. Press evenly over salmon. Cook in the air fryer for 15 mins or until cooked to your liking.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, place the potato in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover and cook in the microwave on high for 8 mins or until tender. Drizzle with oil. Toss to coat.
  3. Step 3

    Transfer salmon to a plate. Cover with foil. Increase the air fryer to 200°C. Cook potatoes in the air fryer for 20 mins or until golden and crisp. Season.
  4. Step 4

    Combine rocket, tomato and shaved parmesan in a large bowl. Season.
  5. Step 5

    Place salmon and potato in a dish. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with extra basil. Serve with the salad and lemon wedges.

    In the oven

    To make this without an air fryer, bake the potato at 180°C for 30-35 mins, adding the salmon for the last 15 mins.

    Go wholegrain

    Instead of potatoes, serve salmon with toasted multigrain bread or wholemeal sourdough slices.
