SPICY SPEEDY AIR FRYER SHRIMP

I often receive requests for air fryer recipes, and for good reason! They add a fun, crunchy twist to cooking and speed up the process without sacrificing taste. I’m particularly fond of this recipe because it offers endless possibilities for these spicy crustaceans.

Equipment

  • Air Fryer

Ingredients
  

  • 1 Tablespoon hot Mexican-style chili powder
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat panko crumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 pound medium shrimp peeled and deveined
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Optional toppings:
  • avocado sliced or guacamole
  • salsa any style
  • fresh lime juice
  • cilantro
  • hot sauce

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the air fryer to 360˚F for at least 5 minutes. While preheating, place prepared shrimp in a medium bowl. Sprinkle with chili powder and mix well.
  • Crack the egg into a separate small bowl — mixing well with fork. Place the panko crumbs into a separate small bowl.
  • Once preheat is complete, slide out the air fryer basket and coat with nonstick cooking spray. Remove shrimp from bag, one at a time, dipping into the egg, then panko crumbs, and placing in air fryer basket.
  • Once basket is full (not overfull, as shrimp should not touch each other), spray tops of shrimp and slide into air fryer. “Fry” for 7–8 minutes at 360˚F, shaking halfway through to flip shrimp. Remove and repeat until all shrimp are cooked.

Notes

Serve on top of salad, in a whole grain wrap, or in a bowl with brown rice. Top with any or all of the suggested toppings, and then some!
