Air Fryer Parmesan Salmon

I love this simple way to make salmon in the air fryer, combining a little mayonnaise, basil and Parmesan creates a delicious crust even the kids can’t resist! Of course, if you don’t have an air fryer you can make this in the oven.

The Skinnytaste by Vremi Air Fryer pictured above is finally available for pre-order on Amazon (US only). As the ship date gets closer, Canadians and Hawaii will also be able to order it on the Vremi website, June 17th (shipping fees will be extra). This is the air fryer I used to create all my air fryer recipes!

Is Salmon Good In The Air Fryer?

Salmon is one of my favorite things to make in the air fryer, fish comes out so juicy and cooks so quick!  Although you may have to cook this in batches depending on the size of your air fryer, in the time it takes to pre-heat a regular oven, both batches will be done. I make this Parmesan crusted salmon with mayo at least once a week and switch it up with different herbs, but what makes this fish extra special is the Parmesan crust, I promise you will love it!

How Long Do I Cook Salmon In The Air Fryer?

How long to cook salmon in the air fryer will depend on the thickness of the fish. I like to cook salmon at 400F and cook it anywhere from 6 minutes to 10 minutes.

Note:

I typically prefer to spray my food rather than the basket, but for some foods that may stick, at times I will spray the basket. Avoid cooking sprays, instead you can purchase an oil mister and use your favorite oil, or buy a propellant-free olive oil spray with no additives, such as Bertolli 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray.
