Lemon Dill Salmon is not only keto friendly, it’s gluten free as well. This makes for a wonderful week night meal, and you can easily double the amount of fish for an additional serving if you are entertaining. If you’re not using an air fryer, all of my recipes can also be made on a sheet pan in the oven by adding 50 degrees.

All air fryers cook at different speeds.  These recipes are meant to be a general guide.  Cooking times depend on various factors including thickness, cut, and type of meat used.  I use an Instant Pot Vortex Plus shelf air fryer.  If you’re using something different, especially a bucket type air fryer, I advise keeping an eye on food so it doesn’t under, or overcook.

  1. This sounds good! Did you remove the skin from the salmon before you cooked it?

    1. Hi Pat! I left the skin on. I’m all about easy.
