Updated: May 11

There are 2 things I love a lot:

  1. My air fryer.

  2. Salmon.

I put my two loves together and bring to you one of the most simple, fool proof air fryer salmon recipes!

Air Fried Salmon

If you're more of a visual person: Here is a video tutorial

Makes: 2 servings

Cooking Time: 12-15 minutes

Total Time: 18 minutes


  • 1 lb salmon

  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard, I love using Sir Kensington's

  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika

  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

  • 1 lemon


  1. Cut the salmon into two filets (if they aren't already).

  2. Pat the salmon filets dry with a paper towel.

  3. Spread the Dijon Mustard on each filet with a spoon, also rub the sides!

  4. Add the seasoning on top of each filet.

  5. Place in an air fryer, skin side down.

  6. Air fry at 395 for 12 minutes.

  7. Remove from the heat and let it sit for about 5 minutes.

  8. Serve each filet with 1/2 of the lemon, juiced on top.
