Texas Kitchen: Erika’s air fryer salmon recipe

Erika Harrison’s air fryer salmon

Erika Harrison, the blogger behind Black Girls Who Brunch, started her blog to chronicle her adventures through Houston’s culinary scene (although originally from Kansas City, Missouri, she now considers H-Town her hometown).

The name is also a reference to her desire to inspire other young Black professionals to venture out to the same restaurants she has enjoyed. Today, the blog has grown to encompass everything from travel, to local Houston happenings, to recipes—like this one for salmon cooked in an air fryer.

Air fryers are all the rage, and it’s easy to see why. They make frying quick and easy, without all of the messy cleanup. Harrison’s tip for adding a little oomph to the dish? After your salmon is cooked, sprinkle on some rosemary or add a squeeze of lemon.

Erika's air fryer salmon


2 servings

  • 1 piece of center-cut salmon with skin (can be any size)
  • ½ tablespoon Adams Sweet and Smokey Seafood and Salmon Seasoning (or any brand you prefer)
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil


Dab the salmon with a paper towel to remove any excess water. Season with the Adams seasoning.

Place a piece of foil at the bottom of your air fryer. Put the salmon on top of the foil, skin side down. Top with a few slices of lemon. Lightly spray with olive oil using an oil sprayer.

Cook at 400° for 12 to 13 minutes. Increase or decrease the time depending on the number of pieces of salmon and the thickness. To ensure the fish is done, use a meat thermometer and bring the internal temperature to 145°. Serve hot, alongside a refreshing salad.
