Ingredient Checklist

2 Salmon fillets
1 Lemon
2 tsp Olive Oil
1 pinch of Salt
1 pinch of Pepper
1 pinch of Paprika

My Discovery

I’ve been trying to incorporate more seafoods into our diets and found salmon a great way to do that.

My family can be a bit fussy when it comes to fish.. there are a few complains when I serve cod, but salmon seems to get a thumbs up from all around the table.

I used to fry our salmon in the pan but I didn’t like all the oil that I had to use. Now with the air fryer I used just a couple of teaspoons and it comes out just as good!


Step 1

Remove any bones

Check your salmon fillets for bones and carefully remove them.

Step 2

Season the skin

Rub the salt into the skin for some extra flavour.

Step 3

Season the fillet

Lightly coat the fillet with oil, salt, pepper and paprika. I usually use Splendor Garden organic spices and herbs.

Step 4

Preheat the air fryer at 390 F

Step 5

Air fry for 7 minutes

Turning half way through.

Step 6

Check the fish is fully cooked

If not, air fry for another few minutes and check again.

Step 7

Squeeze lemon over the fillets

Be generous!
