How to Make Delicious Popcorn Shrimp in Air Fryer
What You Need to Make Popcorn Shrimp in Air Fryer
Making popcorn shrimp in your air fryer is surprisingly easy! All you need is a package of frozen popcorn shrimp, some oil, and a few spices. To get started, you’ll need to gather the following ingredients:
- 1 package of frozen popcorn shrimp
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon of paprika
- 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning
- Salt and pepper, to taste
How to Prepare the Popcorn Shrimp for Air Frying
Once you have all the ingredients, you’re ready to start prepping the popcorn shrimp for air frying. Begin by preheating the air fryer to 375°F. While the air fryer is preheating, place the frozen popcorn shrimp in a large bowl. Drizzle the shrimp with the olive oil and sprinkle with the garlic powder, paprika, Italian seasoning, and salt and pepper.
Mix the ingredients together, making sure all the shrimp is evenly coated with the oil and spices. Once the air fryer has preheated, add the shrimp to the fryer basket and spread them out in a single layer. Close the lid and cook the shrimp for 8 minutes, flipping halfway through.
Serving the Air Fryer Popcorn Shrimp
Once the popcorn shrimp is finished cooking, remove the basket from the air fryer and transfer the shrimp to a serving platter. Serve the shrimp with your favorite dipping sauce – ranch, honey mustard, BBQ, or sweet and sour are all excellent choices.
