These Keto Air Fryer Shrimp are so crispy and delicious you won’t believe they’re healthy. To top them off, I dip them in my homemade Keto Sweet Chili Sauce that’s simply tasty. This combo is so amazing is will leave you craving it weekly. The shrimp is Whole30, Keto and Paleo while the sauce is not considered Whole30, but Paleo and Keto.

Air Fryer Shrimp

Shrimp is something I love incorporating in my weekly menu because it’s easy and quick to whip up. It’s also very versatile and can be grilled, broiled or fried. My all time favorite way to make shrimp though is in the air fryer. For this recipe, I toss in a almond flour coating and fry in the air fryer. They take only 8 minutes to make and they turn out so crispy and tender.

Sweet Chili Sauce

These Keto Air Fryer Shrimp can serve as the perfect party appetizer or a scrumptious family dinner. You can mix up the flavor combo by dipping in my homemade Sweet Chili Sauce, ranch dressing or even a clean cocktail.

Tips for these Keto Air Fryer Shrimp

  • Flipping the shrimp halfway through cooking is very important. This will insure that this cooks the shrimp evenly and gets crispy on each side.
  • Spray the shrimp with cooking spray before cooking and again when you remove the basket at the halfway mark. This will give the shrimp a nice crispy finish.
  • I usually use a 2 step process for coating my shrimp. However, if you want a thicker coating, feel free to double dip the shrimp. Meaning, dip the shrimp in the egg then the flour mixture and repeat the process.

  1. Stephanie says:

    Could you substitute the xantham gum for something else?
    Thanks! 😊

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      YOu could use arrowroot or tapioca flour. You will need to use 1/2 tsp rather than 1/4 tsp.

  2. B. Brooks says:

    A coconut version of this would be awesome!!

  3. Stefani says:

    Hi!! Can I substitute the almond flour for gluten free flour?? Is there an adjustment I need to make?

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      I haven’t tested it this way, so I can’t give you a for sure answer. It should be fine to sub though.

  4. Megan says:

    Looks amazing! I’m doing the Whole30, what sauce would you recommend for dipping since the chili sauce is not compliant?

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Any of my Majestic Sauces would be fabulous with this.

  5. Christy says:

    I don’t have an air frier. Will this work in the oven?

  6. Taylor says:

    These shrimp seemed like a treat meal but they’re all healthy! We loved them! Thanks, Ashley!

  7. Bianca says:

    Sorry, but this recipe does not work at all. I have followed it to a T and the breading will. not. stick. They fall apart in the air fryer. So disappointing.

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Such a bummer it didn’t work for you. This recipe however is a BOMB and I stand by it 100%. This is one of my family and friends favorites!

    2. Lacey Biddy says:

      It helps to completely dry your shrimp with paper towels before breading. It will help the breading stick. And make sure your air fryer is well greased.

  8. Amanda says:

    I made this recipe tonight and it was fantastic! Both the sauce and the shrimp turned out perfectly and I can’t wait to make it again. My husband loved it and swears he hates it when I make recipes with almond flour (he couldn’t tell and I didn’t tell him… shhh!).

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      This is awesome to hear! Thank you Amanda!

  9. Shanna says:

    So glad we tried this recipe! Delicious with tartar sauce or cocktail sauce.

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Thank you! So happy to hear
