  • salt 1.36g


  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp mixed herbs
  • 1 tsp garlic granules (optional)
  • 4 salmon fillets (we used 4 x 130g fillets), skin on or removed
  • ½ tbsp olive oil
  • cooked seasonal greens and grains such as quinoa or brown rice, to serve (optional)


  1. Combine the salt, pepper, mixed herbs and garlic granules, if using, in a bowl, then scatter onto a plate. Rub each salmon fillet with a little olive oil and roll in the seasoning to coat.

  2. Put in the air fryer basket in one layer and cook at 180C for 8-10 mins, until cooked through. If you have larger salmon fillets they will need to be cooked for longer – keep checking after 10 mins and cook in 1-2 min blasts, until ready. Serve with greens and quinoa or rice, if you like.
