PREP TIME 5 mins

COOK TIME 8 mins

MAKES 2 slices of salmon

SERVING SIZE 1 slice of salmon

2 skinless salmon fillets (4oz [120g])

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp ground black pepper

2 tbsp salted butter

2 lemon wedges

1. Set the air fryer temp to 400°F (200°C).

2. Cut 2 sheets of 10-inch-square (25cm square) aluminum foil. Place each salmon fillet in the middle of the shiny side of a sheet.

3. Season each fillet with an equal amount of salt and pepper. Place 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 lemon wedge next to each fillet. Wrap the salmon in the foil and squeeze the top and bottom shut tightly.

4. Place the foil packets in the fryer basket and cook until the salmon skin is light pink all the way around and flakes easily, about 8 minutes.

5. Remove the packets from the fryer basket and allow the salmon to cool for 5 minutes sealed in the foil. Unwrap and serve with your favorite sides.

Tips A handy tip for easy meal prep is to freeze many of these portions of salmon wrapped in foil with the lemon and butter and then place them in the fryer basket straight from the freezer. Adjust the cooking time to 20 to 25 minutes for a fully frozen piece. Store the cooked salmon in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
