Tips

Nonstick cooking sprays can damage the air fryer basket. Use a clean spray bottle filled with canola oil to easily coat the air fryer basket with oil.

Leaving the skin on the salmon while cooking will help keep the salmon intact and moist, and can be easily removed after cooking by sliding a spatula between the skin and the flesh.
