Ingredients and Variations

Salmon – Choose salmon fillets that are clean and without odor or discoloration. They should be the same size so they cook evenly. Thaw frozen fillets before cooking, and add minutes for extra thick fillets. Check for doneness with a meat thermometer which should read 145°F. Leave the skin on for extra flavor and more Omega 3s.

Seasonings – Fresh seasonings like lemon pepper and dill enhance the delicate flavor of salmon. Try a sprinkle of DIY salmon seasoning for a more pronounced grilled salmon flavor or any combination of basil, rosemary, or other fresh herbs. Substitute the oil for melted garlic butter or add a drizzle of creamy dill sauce to finish.

How to Make Air Fryer Salmon with Dill

Cooking salmon is simple and makes an elegant and delicious dinner!

  1. Mix olive oil and lemon juice together in a small bowl and brush over filets (make sure they are patted dry so the seasonings stick).
  2. Season filets and air fry until salmon reaches an internal temp of 145°F or until the fish flakes easily with a fork and is opaque.

Pro Tip:

Make a ‘raft’ of lemon slices or sprigs of fresh dill to place under the salmon for a more infused flavor.

Storing Leftover Salmon

Reheat in the air fryer or add to a breakfast quiche, or make salmon sliders with creamy avocado aioli.

Freeze leftover salmon in zippered bags for up to 1 month and thaw in the refrigerator before using.
