Notes

  • Cooking times will vary based upon the thickness of your salmon. I used 1 ½ inch thicken salmon.
  • If you leave the skin on you do not need to flip the salmon. If you removed the skin, you can gently slip the salmon half way through the cooking process.
  • If your salmon is not done to your liking, you can add 1-2 minutes until it is done.
  • You can quickly over cook the salmon, so be sure to check on it every few minutes.
  • Pro Tip: This recipe can be made in the air fryer unit with a basket or the air fryer oven. If you are using the air fryer oven, use the middle rack and select the "Air Fry" function.
