  • Preheat Air Fryer to 400˚F.
  • Lightly grease the air fryer basket with cooking spray.
  • Pat dry the salmon filets with paper towels; season with salt and pepper, and set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, mustard, garlic, thyme, and rosemary.
  • Spread the mustard mixture over the filets.
  • Lightly spray the tops of the salmon filets with cooking spray.
  • Transfer salmon to air fryer basket and cook for 10 to 12 minutes, or until cooked through. Salmon is cooked through when internal temperature registers at 145˚F.
  • DO NOT crowd the basket; cook the filets in batches, if needed.
  • Remove salmon from air fryer; transfer to a serving plate and let rest for about 5 minutes.
  • Garnish with parsley and serve with lemon slices.
