Lemon-Garlic Air Fryer Salmon

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"This buttery lemon-garlic salmon is easy to throw together with a few simple ingredients. For best results, use center-cut fillets that are about 1-inch thick. Eight minutes cook time will produce salmon that is medium-well. Add 1 to 2 more minutes for well done, but take care not to overcook. Cook time may vary with different model air fryers."

I'm happy to say that all came out well and my brother loved it! It was a little awkward trying to cook two pieces at one time in my air fryer, but recipe was great!
