This is such an easy and healthy dinner, Air Fryer Blackened Salmon. I love this recipe, and I love that I made it in less than 15 minutes, from start to finish.


  • 2 (6 ounces) salmon fillet (skin on or off)
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter


  1. Start by making the blackened spice. In a small bowl, mix the paprika, brown sugar, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne, thyme, and oregano. Mix well.
  2. Then brush the butter onto the salmon and then cover it with the spice mixture. 
  3. Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees F, air fryer setting. 
  4. Then place your plank onto the air fryer, and then place the salmon on top of the plank.
  5. Air fry for 5 minutes, and then brush some more butter on top. 
  6. Air fry for another 4-5 minutes, until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F.
  7. Plate, serve, and enjoy!
