30-Minute Christmas Dinner: Air Fryer Cranberry-Mustard Salmon

Yes, you can make Christmas Dinner in about 30 minutes. Air Fryer Cranberry-Mustard Salmon is simple, quick, special, and delicious. The salmon comes out of the air fryer moist and almost melt-in-your mouth tender (you can also make the salmon in the "regular oven"--just cook it at 400 degrees for 15-18 minutes). The recipe is elegant and pretty enough for company. You can use whatever cranberry sauce you have available to make the topping for the salmon. I generally make my own, using the recipe on the back of the cranberry bag but substituting orange juice for the water called for in the recipe and adding a tablespoon or so of fresh minced ginger (from a squeeze bottle!). Even canned cranberry sauce will do, but use the "whole-berry" version rather than the jellied stuff. While the salmon cooks, you can prepare a pot of rice in about 15 minutes and microwave a green vegetable (broccoli? asparagus?) to go with the meal. Enjoy!
