Time Saving Tips
- Save clean up by combining the seasoning, lemon juice, and olive oil in a gallon-sized zippered bag. Seal the bag with the frozen shrimp inside and simply shake to coat them. No fuss, no muss!
- Always start with a preheated air fryer so it can quickly seal the outside of the shrimp while keeping them juicy and tender on the inside!
- Leave enough space between the shrimp so the air can flow around them. Test with just one or two shrimp to make sure the cook times aren’t too short or long. Shrimp should be tender and not hard or rubbery.
