Frequently Asked Questions about Air Fryer Salmon
How long does it take to cook salmon and other fish in the Air Fryer?
It depends on the size of the fish. You can tell the fish is fully cooked when it flakes easily with a fork. This recipe only takes between 7-9 minutes depending on the size of the salmon.
Can you eat the skin on fish?
Yes, you can usually eat the skin. On salmon, if cooked just right, the skin can add another dimension of flavor. So we recommend you have fun and experiment with the skin on fish.
Weight Watchers Air Fryer Salmon
The air fryer is really great for Weight Watchers members because you get delicious crunchy foods without all that extra fat which adds a crazy amount of points. I love this salmon recipe because salmon is a zero point food (yes!) and it just takes a few minutes to cook.
This also makes a really generous 6 ounce serving. Add some zero point veggies and you’ve got a complete meal. If you want to round out the dinner with some potatoes or rice, you have the points for it.
