Easy Air Fryer Salmon

Easy Air Fryer SalmonI got an air fryer over the holidays and I’m obsessed!

What I love about an air fryer is that it’s super easy to use, and no matter what you make, it’s crispy and that feels super satisfying.

I’ve been playing around with many recipes, and am really loving making proteins in the air fryer because they’re cooked well, moist, and really tasty.

This easy salmon can be made with any marinade, any herbs or toppings; adding a marinade won’t change how the dish cooks.

I kept it really simple- just salt and pepper and some dry herbs. I paired this dish with simple sauteed brussles sprouts, and spinach.
