Tips For Cooking Salmon in an Air Fryer
Preheat your air fryer. Preheating your air fryer will speed up the cooking time a bit. But it will also allow the salmon to cook more evenly throughout each piece. It will also crisp up the edges, so they are nice and tasty.
Use evenly sized pieces. Try to make sure each salmon fillet is cut in equal thickness. This helps each one to cook at the same pace, so you won’t end up with some that are overcooked and some undercooked. If you have pre-portioned filets that are different sizes, you may consider cooking them in batches.
Don’t crowd the basket. It’s best if the salmon fillets have room in between them so they can cook through and crisp on the edges. If they are stuck together, the moisture will affect the air circulating through the air fryer.
