  • Meanwhile make the sauce. Mix yogurt with dill and garlic powder. Add lemon juice and salt and pepper if needed.
  • Once the salmon is done, cover it with sauce and serve.



Use lemon slices or oil cooking spray on the air fryer basket to prevent sticking.
Dont overcook the fish. Stick to the cooking time otherwise it will be dry.
Choose wild caught salmon over farmed salmon fillets if possible.
