Let’s get started!

Pat dry 


Preheat your air fryer, following your brand of default setting. Mine is Cosori and the default is 400F (204C) for 5 minutes. Pat dry the salmon if they are watery.

Make the sauce


To prepare the sauce, in a measuring cup with sprout, combine olive oil, mustard, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.



Pour the sauce onto the fillets. Use a silicone brush to help you distribute the sauce evenly and all over the salmon.

Air fry and Serve


Air fry for 8 minutes and check the doneness. Add another minute or two for medium-cooked salmon. The salmon is done when you can use a fork to flake easily.
