Generously coat the flesh side of the salmon with oil and cook it 90% of the way skin side down until the skin releases easily from the grill, about 6-8 minutes, before turning to the flesh side for 2-4 more minutes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a large baking pan. Arrange salmon fillets on the baking sheet and season generously with salt and pepper. Bake for 12-15 minutes until salmon is opaque and flaky when pulled apart with a fork. You can broil the last 1-2 minutes if desired to get a delicious golden-browned crispy top.
AIR FRYER -
Preheat the air fryer to 400°F. Place the salmon in the air fryer and air fry for 7-9 minutes, depending on this thickness of the salmon. Please note, time may vary between air fryers. Open basket and check for desired doneness with a fork. You can return the salmon for another 1 or 2 minutes as necessary.
