Perfectly pink and flaky, this Air Fryer Pesto Salmon is easy to make (only three ingredients!) and deliciously savory.


1 pound salmon (skin on), cut into filets if you wish
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 cup pesto


  1. Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees. (This will take about 3 minutes.)
  2. Sprinkle salmon with garlic salt and then top with pesto.
  3. Place into the air fryer and air fry until salmon is cooked through and easily flakes with a fork (typically anywhere from 8-12 minutes depending on thickness of the fish).
  4. Remove from air fryer, serve with desired sides and enjoy!
