Make the Pesto

Add basil, pecans, garlic, salt, pepper, and lemon zest to a food processor. Blend briefly, and then pour in the olive oil. Blend once more, and add the parmesan cheese.

Season the Salmon

Preheat the air fryer, then pat the salmon dry with a paper towel, brush it with avocado oil, and season it with salt and pepper.

Air Fry the Salmon

Place the salmon skin-side-down in the air fryer basket and cook it for 9-10 minutes. Then, check to see that the salmon is cooked through.

Add the Pesto

Take the salmon out of the air fryer and top it with pesto. 


Serve your flaky pesto salmon with veggies, salad, or another side, and enjoy!
