Background and History:
The Everything-Bagel seasoning is a classic flavor blend, known for its mix of sesame seeds, poppy seeds, garlic, onion, and salt. This dish takes inspiration from bagels, infusing salmon with these delicious flavors. Cooking in an air fryer ensures a crispy, golden crust without the need for deep frying.

Time: 25 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
- Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
- Brush the salmon fillets with olive oil on both sides. This helps the seasoning stick and adds moisture.
