The Best Way to Cook Salmon Perfectly in an Air Fryer 

Ingredients: – 2 salmon fillet – 1 tablespoon olive oil – Salt and pepper to taste – Lemon wedges (optional, for serving) – Your favorite herbs or seasoning blend (optional)

Instructions: 1. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C) for about 3-5 minutes. 2. While the air fryer is preheating, pat the salmon fillets dry with paper towels. This helps the salmon cook evenly and prevents it from sticking to the air fryer basket.

Brush both sides of the salmon fillets with olive oil. This helps to create a crispy exterior and adds flavor to the salmon.

Season the salmon with salt, pepper, and any herbs or seasoning blend of your choice. Be sure to season both sides evenly.

Once the air fryer is preheated, place the salmon fillets in the air fryer basket in a single layer, skin-side down if your fillets have skin.

Cook the salmon in the air fryer for 10-12 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets. For thinner fillets, check for doneness around 8-10 minutes. The salmon is done when it flakes easily with a fork and reaches an internal temperature of 145°F (63°C).

1. Once the salmon is cooked to your liking, carefully remove it from the air fryer using tongs or a spatula. Serve immediately with lemon wedges if desired. 2. Enjoy your perfectly cooked air fryer salmon!
