Benefits Of Using An Air Fryer For This Recipe!
Air frying is quicker than baking and uses less oil than pan frying. Most air fryers can cook 4 portions of salmon at once for a recipe that’s ready in under 25 minutes from start to finish. This versatile recipe can also be baked in the oven at 400ºF for 12-15 minutes if you don’t have an air fryer. Salmon is coated with simple yet flavorful spices like chili powder, cumin and garlic before being cooked in the air fryer. Air frying creates a crispy top with the help of the seasonings while leaving the center tender and flaky.
