Air Fryer Recipes

Easy air fryer frozen shrimp


  • 1 pound frozen shrimp, peeled and deveined (tails can be left on or removed, depending on preference)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or melted butter
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Optional seasonings: garlic powder, paprika, Cajun seasoning, lemon zest, etc.


  1. Preheat Your Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C) for about 3-5 minutes.
  2. Prepare the Shrimp: If the frozen shrimp are not already peeled and deveined, make sure to do so. Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels to remove excess moisture.
  3. Season the Shrimp: In a bowl, toss the shrimp with olive oil or melted butter until evenly coated. Season the shrimp with salt, black pepper, and any additional seasonings or spices you prefer. Common choices include garlic powder, paprika, Cajun seasoning, or lemon zest for added flavor.
  4. Arrange Shrimp in Air Fryer Basket: Place the seasoned shrimp in the air fryer basket in a single layer, making sure they’re not overcrowded. You may need to cook the shrimp in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
  5. Air Fry: Cook the shrimp in the air fryer at 400°F (200°C) for 8-10 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through the cooking time to ensure even cooking.
  6. Check Doneness: The shrimp should be pink and opaque when cooked through. To ensure they’re done, you can cut into one to check for doneness, or use a meat thermometer to ensure they’ve reached an internal temperature of 120-130°F (49-54°C).
  7. Serve: Once cooked, remove the shrimp from the air fryer and serve immediately. They’re delicious on their own as a snack or appetizer, or you can serve them with your favorite dipping sauce.
  8. Enjoy: Enjoy your crispy air fryer shrimp hot, and consider serving them alongside some cocktail sauce, tartar sauce, or a squeeze of lemon for extra flavor…
