You'll need to adjust cooking times slightly if your salmon is smaller or larger than 6 oz. Salmon filets vary so much in length and thickness, so cook your salmon to your preferred texture.


  • 2 6 ounce fillets of salmon , skin and bones removed
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil or light spray of organic cooking spray
  • kosher salt , to taste
  • black pepper , to taste


  1. Evenly coat salmon with oil or cooking spray. Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper on both sides.

  2. Place salmon fillets in air fryer basket. Air fry the salmon at 360°F for about 10 minutes or cooked to your preferred doneness.

  3. Serve warm. Enjoy, it's that simple.

Recipe Notes

Don’t crowd the air fryer basket (we used a 3.4 qt. air fryer). If you decide to double the recipe, make sure your air fryer is large enough to fit more of the salmon filets. With a fuller basket, add an 1-2 minutes of cooking time if needed to make sure the salmon is cooked through.
If cooking in multiple batches, the first batch will take longer to cook if Air Fryer is not already pre-heated.
