  • 4 (6-ounce) skin-on salmon fillets
  • 100% oil spray
  • salt and ground black pepper


  1. Rinse and dry salmon fillets with a clean towel. Coat fillets generously on both sides with oil spray. Season with salt and ground pepper.
  2. Place salmon fillets skin-side-down in air fryer basket.
  3. Cook on 360°F (182°C) until fish flakes easily with a fork, 8 to 10 minutes (for medium to well done).
Mealthy tip:

This is a simple recipe for salmon in it's purest form. Brush salmon with soy sauce and sesame oil, and sprinkle with sesame seeds for a simple sesame crusted salmon. Add your favorite seasonings, glazes, etc. to jazz your salmon up as desired. You may need to cook your salmon a little longer, depending on the thickness of the cut.

Really quick and easy salmon recipe. The only thing I added was lemon juice on top. For the filets I used, 9 minutes was the perfect length of time.
