My daughter loves salmon, she would eat it every day if she could. This is something she clearly got from her father because I am not a fan of fish.
I really didn’t think she would like this blackened salmon that was made in the air fryer, but she did. I’m so glad she did because this recipe is extremely quick and simple. I can make it in a hurry if we need it.
Can we just enjoy how pretty it is for a moment? Even though I don’t eat salmon.. this is just a plate of prettiness to me!
Easy Air Fryer Blackened Salmon Recipe
Appliance Needed: Air Fryer
- 1 lb fresh salmon cut into two filets (with the skin on)
- 1 teaspoon of olive oil
- A tablespoon of blackening seasoning
It doesn’t get much easier than this…
Brush the salmon fillets with a little bit of olive oil. I’ve used the cooking spray before with no problems. If that is what you have on hand, it should be fine to use that instead.
Sprinkle the salmon with the blackening seasoning.
Place the seasoned salmon in the Air Fryer basket and cook at 390 for about 8-10 minutes or until done.
Keep in mind that cooking times may vary depending on what kind of an Air Fryer you are using.
Pair this salmon up with some broccoli (or other veggies like these red potatoes or Instant Pot potatoes. Now, you have yourself a delicious and easy weeknight dinner idea that any salmon lover will enjoy!
