Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat air fryer to 375°F for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, finely chop garlic. Add salt to the garlic on a cutting board; chop and mash the mixture together with the flat side of a knife to form a paste. Transfer to a small bowl.

  • Add lemon juice, oil, coriander and 1/4 teaspoon Aleppo pepper (or chili powder) to the garlic mixture; whisk to combine. Pat salmon dry; spoon the mixture evenly over the tops of the fillets.

  • Coat the basket of the air fryer with cooking spray; arrange the salmon, skin-side down, in the basket. Cook until browned and just cooked through, about 12 minutes. Remove from the air fryer.

  • Top the salmon evenly with lemon zest, parsley and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon Aleppo pepper (or chili powder). Serve immediately, with lemon wedges if desired.
