Recipe Highlights

  • Salmon is a quick and easy dish that can be made any night of the week for a healthy and nutritious dinner.
  • I love making salmon in the air fryer because it turns out juicy and perfect every time and it cooks up in under 10 minutes.
  • I buy salmon frozen in individual fillets so that we can make exactly how much we need.  This recipe is perfect for dividing into individual portions and you can make any number of servings you need.  It’s also perfect for meal prep and is great for serving with cucumber tomato salad and quinoa.

Ingredient Notes

  • Any brand of herb and garlic seasoning will work, just take a look and see if it contains salt. If not, you’ll want to add a sprinkle or two to taste.
  • My favorite salmon is sockeye.  I love the firm texture and dark color, but again, and salmon filets that you have will work!
