  • 6 ounce salmon filet
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil, optional
  • lemon wedge for serving


  • If your salmon is frozen, thaw first.
  • Prep your air fryer by either brushing the bottom rack with a little oil OR adding parchment paper.
  • Brush the top of the salmon with oil and season well.
  • Add to the air fryer and cook at 390°F for 8 minutes.


-You do not need to remove the skin before cooking. Air fry the salmon with the skin side down, on the bottom.
-You do not need to flip the salmon while cooking.
-For seasoning you can use any combination of salt, pepper, garlic powder, garlic salt, seasoning salt, Italian seasoning, cayenne, or a seasoning mix. 
-You can cook multiple salmon filets in the air fryer at the same time, but you do not want them to be overlapping or touching as they can stick together. 
-Serve with a fresh lemon wedge to squeeze over the top before eating.
