    Classic. I have finally found a way to prepare my son’s salmon without too much or too little flavor. We eat this every week, and he hasn’t tired of it!

    Will make this again. Turned out perfect with a creamy dill sauce.

    Very good. Preheated. Had to go 15 minutes but I think we had twice the salmon.

    The salmon turned out perfect. The key is not to overcook it. Everyone loved it.

    Still overcooked it somehow. Will try again though.

    Quick, high protein, low calorie meal. Flavorful, moist, and flaky. This is actually the only way that I prepare salmon steaks anymore. Cleanup is easy, too. Mixes well with a leafy green salad and steamed veggies or baked potatoe

    Just got an air fryer a few weeks back and was so excited to see this recipe! It usually takes me twice as long to make any recipe but this one was healthy and so easy to make! Will be looking at other air fryer recipes with the same author! She has sold me on the air fryer!

    Super easy and even my kids, who don’t like fish much, liked it. I used smoked paprika and nonstick spray instead of oil.

    The title, Perfect Air Fryer Salmon, delivered. I love salmon but I always seem to over cook it in the oven. My sister makes the best salmon, so i would petition her to make it for me. But, not any more because I can do it myself in my new air fryer xl that I was giftedfor Christmas. I followed recipe using only one piece if salmon. Will make this at least once a week. This is not the best picture

    I do not eat fish but had salmon last summer that I really liked (I was a guest at someone's home and would have felt super guilty turning down their dinner). So I decided to try this recipe. Loved that it was fast and easy and the taste was good. We cooked it a few more minutes to make it more flaky. Probably won't make it again just because we aren't fish eaters but I'm glad I tried it.

    Amazing! We have a new smaller air fryer so I cut the salmon fillets in half and did them in 2 batches. Will certainly make this again!
