How to air fry salmon?
Start by preparing two 6oz salmon filets with a drizzle of olive oil and a squeeze of lemon.
Next, lightly season the filets with salt and pepper and a sprinkle of Italian seasoning blend. If desired, you can place thinly sliced lemon on the fish for extra flavor and a beautiful presentation.
The air fryer will cause the lemon to crisp up a bit which is stunning when plated. Place the salmon skin side down inside the air fryer, on the cooking basket/rack.
How long to air fry salmon?
Cook at 375° F for 8-10 minutes depending on the thickness of your filet. Your filet is done when the thickest part of the filet reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees.

Thank you for all your great recipes.
I just got an air fryer. I’d like to make the salmon, but our Kirkland/Costco salmon doesn’t have skin.
Can I still make it this way?
Thank you very much
Yes you can!
