Don't Skip One Important Step When Making Salmon In The Air Fryer
When cooking salmon in an air fryer, preheating is the most important step that ensures your fish emerges from the basket flawlessly cooked and beautifully whole.
Preheating is important because it prevents the fish from sticking. The hot surface helps to set the proteins in the fish, preventing it from adhering to the metal.
This provides a barrier between the fish and the metal basket. It helps to sear the surface of the salmon quickly, forming a protective layer that helps prevent sticking.
