How to Make Delicious Fried Shrimp in an Air Fryer
What You Need
To make delicious fried shrimp in an air fryer, you will need the following: air fryer, 1 pound of jumbo shrimp, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1 teaspoon of paprika, 1 teaspoon of dried oregano, 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes, salt and pepper to taste.
Prepping the Shrimp
Start by prepping the shrimp. Rinse the shrimp in cold water and pat them dry with a paper towel. Place the shrimp in a bowl and add the olive oil. Toss the shrimp in the oil to coat them. Then add the garlic powder, paprika, oregano, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Toss the shrimp in the seasonings to coat them.
Cooking the Shrimp
Next, place the shrimp in the air fryer basket. Set the air fryer to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and cook the shrimp for 8 minutes. Flip the shrimp halfway through the cooking time. When the shrimp is done, it should be golden brown and crispy on the outside.
Serving the Shrimp
Serve the shrimp with your favorite dipping sauce. You can also serve it as an appetizer, or as part of a larger meal. Enjoy!
For an extra kick of flavor, add a squeeze of lemon juice before serving. If you want to add more heat, add a pinch of cayenne pepper to the shrimp before cooking.
