Ingredients to Elevate Your Dish

Before we dive into the step-by-step process, let's acquaint ourselves with the star-studded cast of ingredients that will transform into your mouthwatering air fried salmon:

  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced


  1. Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, salt, and pepper. This will create a flavorful marinade for the salmon.
  3. Brush the marinade onto both sides of the salmon fillets, ensuring they are evenly coated.
  4. Place a layer of lemon slices on the bottom of the air fryer basket. This will not only infuse the salmon with citrusy goodness but also prevent it from sticking to the basket.
  5. Place the marinated salmon fillets on top of the lemon slices in the air fryer basket.
  6. Air fry the salmon for 8-10 minutes, or until it's cooked to your desired level of doneness. The salmon should be opaque and flake easily with a fork.
  7. Once cooked, remove the salmon from the air fryer and let it rest for a minute before serving.
  8. Garnish the air fried salmon with additional lemon slices for a burst of freshness.


1. Can I use frozen salmon for this recipe?

Absolutely! Just make sure to thaw the frozen salmon thoroughly before marinating and air frying. This ensures even cooking and the best possible flavor.

2. Can I use different seasonings?

Definitely! Feel free to experiment with your favorite seasonings and herbs to create a flavor profile that excites your taste buds. The air fryer is an excellent canvas for culinary creativity.
