I continue to receive lots of requests for air fryer recipes :). No doubt with good reason — they make cooking fun, tasty, crunchy and speedy. I love this recipe, as there are so many options as to what you can do with these spicy crustaceans.
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
avocado, sliced or guacamole
salsa, any style
fresh lime juice
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.
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!
