So what’s the next best method? The air fryer, of course! I love how it cooks perfectly in minutes and there’s hardly any mess to clean up. 

This is a great meal idea for two and an easy way to cook salmon for meal prep, because it tastes delicious when it’s reheated. If you’r

What Salmon Should I Use? 

Any variety of salmon will work for this recipe. We prefer fresh and wild caught fish when we can find it.

When choosing fresh salmon at the store you want to look for a vibrant color and there shouldn’t be any noticeable fishy odor. 

Frozen salmon filets can be used as well, but they’ll need to be thawed prior to cooking.

Tips for Making Salmon in the Air Fryer

  • If you don’t have a juicer, push a small, sturdy whisk into the orange halves to extract the juice. 
  • If you don’t have fresh oranges, substitute 1/2 – 2/3 cup ready made orange juice.
  • To ensure even cooking, use salmon filets that are similar in size. 
  • Check to make sure the pan fits in your air fryer basket before starting. Depending on your air fryer model you may need to use a smaller pan. 
  • The salmon is fully cooked when it flakes easily with a fork, is opaque in color, and the internal temperature is 145 degrees. Use an instant read thermometer to check the temperature. Do not overcook it! 

How to Store, Serve, and Reheat Air Fried Salmon

Place leftovers in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the air fryer for 3-5 minutes at 350 degrees F. 

The leftover salmon can be chopped and served in tacos or over a salad for a new take on this delicious dinner.
