Air Fryer Salmon / Grilled Salmon

Here is the yummiest grilled or air fryer Salmon recipe. As is made in the air fryer it hasn't become dry but it is juicy and healthy. However, if you do not have an air fryer, you just need to follow the steps and grill it in a grilling pan or in an oven.
But the time taken in an oven would differ. And also if your using a grilling pan, chances are there that the skin of the salmon sticks to the pan making it hard for you to take. Hence, the pan should be well seasoned, apply some oil on it before placing the marinated fish on it, leave it on low flame until the skin loosens it out of the pan and then flip to cook the other side of the fish.
Salmon is one of the healthiest fish. It is rich in omega3 fatty acids that are of much importance to our body. But you could use the same marinade for any other fish as well.

The air fryer I used is Chefman’s Turbo Airfyer and it doesn’t need to be preheated. So if the air fryer you use requires to be preheated, you would need to do so as per the requirement. 
I did the same recipe both on the stovetop grill and in the air fryer. I should say I loved the air fryer one because fish made in the stovetop grill wasn’t juicy and went dry. It was super tasty and everyone loved it. 
Try this and you would love it too. 
Lots of Love,
