Print Recipe


  • 2 salmon fillets skin-on (6-8 ounces each)
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder


  • Preheat an air fryer at 400 degrees F for 5 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together oil, oregano, salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder. Brush on top of salmon.
  • Set salmon, skin side down, in the preheated air fryer basket. Air fry for 8-9 minutes depending on size of filet.


  • Make sure that the air fryer is fully pre heated before adding the salmon so that it cooks through evenly.
  • Place the salmon skin side down in the air fryer basket.
  • The cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the fillets. The flesh should easily flake when they are done.
