Ingredients

Equipment

Instructions

  • Mix the avocado oil, lime juice, chili powder, ground cumin, garlic powder, salt and pepper into a small bowl.

  • Use a brush to spread the mixture on all sides of the Salmon Fillet's.
  • Place into the air fryer.
  • Cook at 400F for 10 minutes. Or, cook until a desired temperature is reached. See notes

Notes

  • Skin on?:  You can buy salmon with the skin on but it will not crisp up with this recipe.  No need to remove the skin, though, the flesh will pull right off of the skin after it is cooked.
  • Checking for doneness:  A meat thermometer is the perfect way to check to see if the salmon is done too your liking.  If you like your salmon to be medium-rare (my favorite) Pull the salmon when it is at 125F
  • This recipe is easily doubled to make 4 filets.
