How to make air fryer shrimp

Gather all the ingredients in one place.

Then measure out the spices and herbs and mix into a dry mixture. Also, devine and peel the shrimp if you did not purchase them so.

Place the shrimp, the olive oil and the the dry rub mixture into a ziplock bag and mix well until all the shrimp is properly coated.

Then spray the air fryer with some cooking spray and place the shrimp into the air fryer basket in a single layer and cook at 400 degrees for 7 minutes. Shrimp cooks easily so there is no need to cook the shrimp on both sides. 

Serve as is with some lemon slices or with a side of your choice.

Storing

If there are any leftovers, store them in the fridge in an air tight container for no more than 3 days. To reheat the air fried shrimp, preheat your air fryer at 400 degrees for 2 minutes, then place the leftover shrimp in the air fryer to get reheated for a minute or two until warm.
