You can quickly put up this buttery lemon-garlic salmon with only a few essential ingredients. Use center-cut, 1-inch thick fillets for the most outstanding results. Salmon cooked to medium-well taste after eight minutes. Add 1 to 2 more minutes for well-done, but watch out for overcooking. Various air fryer models may have different cook times.
Why Does This Lemon Garlic Air-Fryer Salmon Work? We'll Take a look!
In addition to the fact that this salmon meal is speedy and straightforward, a few factors make a difference for me:
A ton of flavor
Salmon is a substantial, fatty, and powerful fish that can withstand solid and intense tastes without being overpowered. Salmon requires strong, robust flavors, and our delicious lemon-garlic sauce fills that need.
Making the easy lemon-garlic sauce is the first step in this baked salmon dish. Why is it there?
Lemon. Lots of it. Two huge lemons' juice combined with lemon zest (so much brightness!)
Plenty of fresh garlic. It would help if you minced or finely chopped the garlic since no one likes to bite into a big chunk of it.
Extra virgin olive oil of high quality. While many recipes call for melted butter, it's not necessary. All you need to complete this sauce and give the salmon a healthy buttery touch is extra virgin olive oil. Extra virgin olive oil, is flavorful and spicy in the finish, was what we used.
Herbs & Spices. Simple lemon pepper seasoning that you probably already have around the house!
Soft and just-right flaky
The air fryer is perfect as it gives the edges nice crispy flakiness but leaves it soft and juicy in the center!
