The air fryer works magic with salmon, delivering a slightly crisp exterior and juicy, silky interior. Be sure to leave room between the fillets so air can circulate well around them and ensure even cooking.


Cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Chili powder

¼ tsp

Garlic powder

¼ tsp

Ground cumin

¼ tsp

Kosher salt

¼ tsp

Raw salmon

8 oz, 2 (4-oz) skinless fillets


  1. In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, and salt. Lightly coat the salmon with cooking spray; sprinkle with the spice mixture.
  2. Preheat an air fryer, if necessary, to 400°F. Lightly coat the air fryer basket with cooking spray. Arrange the salmon in the basket. Air-fry until the fish flakes easily or until the desired degree of doneness, 7 to 8 minutes.
