Ingredients

The salmon:

The salsa:

  • 2 tablespoons chopped red onion
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 Persian (mini) cucumbers* diced
  • 6 ounces Hass avocado (1 large) diced

Instructions

The salmon:

  • In a small bowl, combine the paprika, cayenne, garlic powder, oregano, thyme, salt and black pepper.
  • Spray both sides fo the fish with oil and rub all over. Coat the fish all over with the spices.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F.
  • Working in batches, arrange the salmon fillets skin side down in the air fryer basket.
  • Cook until the fish flakes easily with a fork, 5 to 7 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish. (For a toaster oven-style air fryer, the temperature and timing remain the same.)
  • Serve topped with the salsa.

The salsa:

  • In a medium bowl, combine the red onion, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper to taste. Let stand for 5 minutes, then add the cucumbers and avocado.
