  • Air fryer


  • 1 piece Salmon
  • 2 tablespoons Roasted Garlic Butter Spread
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Gluten free breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1 slice Lemon (squeezed over the top of cooked salmon)


  • Place salmon on a plate and pat dry with a paper towel to remove the excess moisture.
  • Add salt and pepper to the salmon. Next add the garlic butter spread and then place breadcrumbs on top of the butter spread.
  • Place salmon in the air fryer and cook on 400 degrees for 8 minutes. Squeeze a slice of lemon over the top. Enjoy!


  • If you have not made my Roasted Garlic Butter Spread, you can use garlic butter.  You will also need to add 1 tablespoon of parmesan cheese to the top of the garlic butter.  Then add the breadcrumbs.
  • If you do not have any fresh lemons that is ok.  Add a dash of lemon juice or you can skip this step.  I just prefer the fresh taste of the lemon.
