This recipe is shamelessly purloined from my ProBreeze air fryer and slightly modified to suit my taste.

The ProBreeze Air Fryer is a non-paddle air-frier - basically a hot basket, so this recipe would be fine in a fan oven too.

Mise en place

  • Preheat you air fryer to 180° C
  • If using a conventional oven, use the temperatures below and allow 15 minutes for a conventional oven to reach temperature
  • 200° C (400° F - gas 6), [fan oven 180° C & reduce cooking time by 10 mins per hour]


  1. Using a microplane grater, remove and reserve the zest from half the lemon
  2. Cut the remaining half of the lemon into very thin slices
  3. Spray the salmon pieces with a little olive oil
  4. Add the smoked paprika, lemon zest, salt and pepper to another plate
  5. Press the salmon pieces into the spice mix to cover all sides
  6. Add the salmon pieces to the basket and cook for eight minutes

Serving suggestions

Serve with a salad or vegetables of your choosing.

I've used smoked paprika instead of plain paprika - use what you fancy.
