Elevate your dining experience with these succulent fillets, seasoned to perfection and cooked to flaky perfection in the convenience of your air fryer. Packed with nutrients and bursting with flavor, this dish is a delightful addition to any mealtime repertoire.

Ingredients:

  • 4 salmon fillets (0 points)
  • Olive oil for rubbing or drizzling (1 WW point per tsp.)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin

Instructions:

  1. Preparation: Begin by rinsing and patting the salmon fillets dry with paper towels. Place them skin side down on a plate, and gently rub olive oil over the top surface of each fillet.
  2. Seasoning: In a small bowl, combine the garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and cumin. Sprinkle this flavorful seasoning mixture evenly over the salmon fillets, ensuring each piece is generously coated.
  3. Preheating: Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for approximately 3 minutes, allowing it to reach the optimal cooking temperature.
  4. Cooking: Carefully place the seasoned salmon fillets, skin side down, into the preheated air fryer basket. Cook the fillets for 8 to 11 minutes, or until they are cooked to your desired level of doneness and flake easily with a fork. Larger pieces of salmon may require slightly longer cooking times.
  5. Checking for Doneness: For added precision, use a meat thermometer to ensure the internal temperature of the salmon reaches 125 degrees F (52 degrees C). This indicates that the salmon is fully cooked and ready to be enjoyed.
  6. Serving: Once cooked to perfection, remove the salmon fillets from the air fryer and serve them immediately. Garnish with fresh herbs or a squeeze of lemon juice for an extra burst of flavor.

Notes:

  • The cooking time may vary depending on the size and thickness of the salmon fillets. Adjust the cooking time accordingly to ensure optimal results.
  • To keep track of your SmartPoints, remember to account for the olive oil used for rubbing or drizzling, which contributes 1 point per teaspoon.
  • Enjoy these delectable air fryer salmon fillets as a nutritious and satisfying main dish, paired with your favorite side dishes or atop a bed of mixed greens for a refreshing salad.
