Ingredients List

Step by Step Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (204°C) for about 3-5 minutes, getting it ready for the salmon.

  2. Optional Olive Oil: For an extra crispy exterior, lightly brush the salmon fillets with olive oil. This step is optional, as the fillets are already seasoned.

  3. Cook: Place the lemon pepper salmon fillets in the air fryer basket, skin-side down, ensuring they do not overlap. Cook for 10-12 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and the edges are slightly crispy.

  4. Serve: Garnish the cooked salmon with fresh lemon slices and dill. Serve immediately to enjoy the full burst of lemon pepper flavor.
