  • 4 salmon fillets

  • 2 lemons

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Fresh herbs such as dill or parsley for garnish (optional)


  • Start by preheating your air fryer to 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit) for approximately 5 minutes.
  • While the air fryer is warming up, prepare the salmon. Pat the salmon fillets dry with paper towels and place them on a clean work surface.
  • Slice one of the lemons into thin rounds. Juice the other lemon to obtain lemon juice.
  • Brush both sides of the salmon fillets with olive oil and drizzle them with the fresh lemon juice. Season them generously with salt and pepper.
  • Place a few lemon slices on top of the salmon fillets and then put them in the preheated air fryer basket.
  • Air fry the salmon for 10-12 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets. Check halfway through the cooking time to ensure the salmon is cooked; it should easily flake apart and have a lightly browned crust.
  • Carefully remove the salmon from the air fryer and serve it immediately. Garnish with fresh herbs like dill or parsley for an extra touch of flavor and color.
