  • Air Fryer


  • 1 pound Salmon Fillet
  • 1 cup Breadcrumbs
  • 1 Medium Egg Beaten
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour


  • Pat dry your salmon fish fillet with paper towel and set aside.  If you are using frozen salmon fillet, thaw it first and then pat it dry.
  • Mix together all purpose flour, salt, paprika, ground black pepper and garlic powder in a bowl.  In another bowl, beat an egg and put breadcrumbs on the third bowl.
  • Dredge the salmon fillet in the flour mixture, then soak and coat it with the beaten egg and then dredge it to the bread crumbs.  Repeat the process until all fillets are done.
  • Preheat your air fryer for 5 minutes in 392F or 200C temperature.  Place the coated salmon fillets in the air fryer. Give space with each fillet, without touching each other. Cook it for 10-12 minutes under 392F.
  • Flip the fish halfway through when you are cooking it in the air fryer so that they will evenly cook.
  • Transfer to a serving plate and serve with your preferred sauce.


  1. Do not overcrowd your air fryer.  Work in batches if needed.
  2. Keep an eye on your salmon fillet to avoid getting burned.
  3. Flip and shake the air fryer basket so that your fish will cook evenly.
  4. You may add oil by using oil spray to your coated fish.  However, I did not use any oil when I was cooking because I try to minimize oil consumption. It still turned out good.
  5. You may adjust the cooking time depending on the air fryer brand that you are using and the thickness of your fillet.
