Notes for Air fryer Salmon

  • I use skin on salmon. The fish flakes away from the skin after it's cooked.
  • Desired doneness will depend on your preference. 10 - 12 minutes is a guideline. Your fish is done when the thickest part flakes easily. The salmon should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
