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.

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

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