Flaky Air Fryer Salmon


Air Fryer Salmon

Ingredients

2 -4 salmon fillets about 6 oz each

2 tsp rub with love salmon rub (or any other kind you like)

1 garlic clove

Salt and pepper to taste

1 Tbsp Olive oil

Cooking spray

Directions

1. Season your salmon fillets with olive oil, pressed garlic, salmon rub, and salt (to taste). I like this local salmon rub, but this salmon rub works well too. To make your own salmon rub, combine 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, 1/4 tsp thyme, 1 tsp smoked paprika, and 1 teaspoon brown sugar.

2. If you’re using an oven air fryer, line the bottom of the baking sheet with foil. If you’re using the basket type do not use foil. Instead, spray the bottom of it with nonstick spray.

3. Bake the salmon at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-15 minutes if using an oven air fryer. If you’re using the basket type, cook for at least 12 minutes and add more time as needed. The cook time will depend on the thickness of your salmon fillet. The thicker the salmon, the longer it will take to air-fry. Always make sure the internal temperature of the thickest part of the salmon is at least 145 degrees fahrehiet.

Notes

Helpful Recipe Tips

• Salmon size– Choose pieces of salmon fillet that are similar in size so they cook evenly and finish baking at the same time.

• Pat it dry– make sure the fillets are blotted dry with a paper towel so that the spices adhere better.

• Check for doneness– insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the fish to make sure it reaches at least 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
