This Air Fryer Salmon is the absolute best way to cook perfect salmon every time! It’s made with a quick, flavorful spice rub and it’s tender and flaky in the middle, and perfectly golden on the outside. Serve with absolutely any side for the perfect meal!

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 pound salmon, cut into 2 filets
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper
  • Lemon wedges, optional, for serving

Instructions

  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400°F (if yours has a preheat option)!
  2. Rub each fillet with olive oil and season with the seasoning blend.
  3. Place the salmon in the air fryer and air fry for 7-9 minutes, this will depend on the thickness of the salmon.
  4. Open basket and check for desired doneness with a fork. You can return the salmon for another 1 or 2 minutes as needed!
  5. Serve with optional lemon wedges and enjoy!

Notes

  1. Time may vary between air fryers.
  2. I like to use wild-caught salmon, but any will do!
