This is my go to recipe for making Air Fryer Fried Shrimp.

Air Fryer Fried Shrimp

I took a look in my freezer and found a large bag of shrimp and came up with this delicious recipe which has turned out to be one of our new favorite ways to prepare crispy shrimp.

If you have never used an air fryer, now is the time. They are more affordable now than ever.

Plus they are also a much healthier way to cook food, since the fat drains away and it is never deep fried.

WHAT IS AIR FRYING?

Air frying is a healthy alternative to deep frying food. And most air fryers have been marketed in a way to make you think that this cooking technique is best for those who make a lot of those at home.  

Well I am here to tell you that you do not need to just be a deep fried food lover to want to use this cooking method. 

RATHER if you love to bake food, then this is also a great alternative. And in most cases is much healthier than traditional baking methods.

Of course, you can either bread it like I did here or cook them simply with garlic, olive oil and lemon juice.

These shrimps here are breaded with milk and flour. And take less than 15 minutes to make!

HOW TO AIR FRY SHRIMP

  • Really it is a simple process.
  • First you will want to have one bowl filled with flour, cornstarch and salt n pepper.
  • Then in a colander you will want to add the shrimp and rinse it well with cold water. 
  • Once the shrimp is rinsed, add it to the flour mixture wet and coat each shrimp fully. 
  • Place 2 tbsp of olive oil to the air fryer then the coat shrimp.
  • Cook each batch for ruffly 15 minutes till crispy.

This makes for the crispiest and tastiest deep fried tasting shrimp, yet it is air fried and is much healthier for you. 

You can also prepare these shrimp without the tails and place these shrimp into tacos. 

Once you try these shrimp, you will be hooked.

These shrimp can be served as is or alongside just about any other dish.

As well you can serve them with your favorite sauce, such as tartar sauce or cocktail sauce. Which would make these a great option to serve a crowd as an appetizer.

AIR FRYER COOKING TIMES

I use the T-Fal Active air fryer and put them on for 40 minutes, please check with your air fryers cooking instructions.

However, to convert an oven-cooked recipe to an air-fryer one, the general rule of thumb is to reduce the suggested temperature by 25°F or 3.889 C and then cut the cook time by about 20%

Of course you can actually heat up the grill outside and bbq some RIBS or bake them in the oven. But why would you now that you have an air fryer. It replaces all those gadgets and the clean up is a sinch.
