HOW TO AIR FRY SALMON?
Preheat your air fryer. Place the seasoned salmon fillets in the air fryer basket. Set the timer and countdown until they’re done. Easy peezy!
HOW LONG TO COOK AIR FRYER SALMON?
I cook mine for 12 minutes but recommend checking at 10 minutes due to the variation of salmon fillet thickness.
CAN YOU PUT ALUMINUM FOIL IN AN AIR FRYER?
Yes, you can put aluminum foil on the top of your air fryer basket. I don’t normally use aluminum foil because I prefer to use parchment paper.
HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN SALMON IS FINISHED?
Salmon is ready when it changes from red to pink. I check for doneness using my digital thermometer. The internal temperature should be 145 degrees Fahrenheit. Another way to tell if the salmon is done is when it flakes in the thickest part and is pink.
WHAT TO SERVE WITH AIR FRYER SALMON?
WHY I LOVE THE AIR FRYER?
I love fried foods and air frying is healthier so I don’t feel as guilty.
The air fryer heats up in minutes, unlike the oven.
The food comes out extra crispy!
