How To Cook Salmon In An Air Fryer

The beauty of air fryer salmon is that you can cook it as it is or add your favourite herbs, spices and marinades.

I have used Thai red curry paste in this recipe, but you can just as easily use something different. Also, keep an eye out for salmon sold in the supermarket already marinated.

I’ve made this salmon a few times; I used this one from Sainsbury’s the first time, but I have since remade it using a jar of Thai red curry paste – Blue Dragon is a good choice, or any supermarket’s own brand.

How Long To Cook Salmon In An Air Fryer

To cook salmon in an air fryer, follow these general guidelines:

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 200°C (390°F).
  2. Season or marinate the salmon fillets with your choice of herbs, spices, pastes or simply salt and pepper.
  3. Place the salmon fillets skin-side down in the air fryer basket, making sure they are not touching each other.
  4. Cook the salmon for 8-10 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets, until they are opaque and flake easily with a fork. Thicker fillets may require slightly longer cooking times.
  5. Remove the salmon from the air fryer and let it rest for a minute or two before serving.
