Keyword: frozen, shrimp


  • Airfryer


  • 1 pound frozen raw shrimp (dethawed, peeled, deveined, tails on)
  • ⅓ cup flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1.5 cups panko bread crumbs
  • Seasoning of choice, non-stick cooking spray


  • Beat eggs until frothy in a medium bowl.

    In a separate bowl, mix together the flour and seasonings.

    Dredge the shrimp in the flour, shaking off excess. Then dip the shrimp into the eggs before pressing into panko on both sides.

    Lightly spray the shrimp with cooking spray.

    Place the shrimp into the air fryer basket in small batches and cook at 350 ° F (177° C) for 5 to 7 minutes until the panko is a crispy golden brown.


If you are having trouble with the shrimp sticking to the air fryer basket, try spraying the basket with a non-stick spray of your choice before putting the shrimp into it.
