When you need a taste of coastal escape but don't quite have the time to create a feast, Air Fryer Shrimp is your ticket to a tropical treat! Pink, fluffy shrimp take a swim in a floury, eggy, breadcrumb pool sprinkled with coconut to ensure you can taste and smell glimpses of an ocean breeze. They do a little sunbathing in an air fryer to achieve the most beautiful golden-brown crispiness. Then Air Fryer Shrimp take one more dip in a creamy, spicy Thai sweet chili sauce that will make your tastebuds feel like they are on vacation!


Ingredients

For the shrimp:
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
kosher salt, to taste
ground black pepper, to taste
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup coconut, shredded, sweetened
2 large eggs, beaten
1 pound large shrimp, peeled, deveined, tails on
For the sauce:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon sriracha sauce
1 tablespoon Thai sweet chili sauce

Directions

Step 1

In a shallow bowl, season the flour with salt and pepper.

Step 2

In another shallow bowl, combine the bread crumbs and coconut.

Step 3

In a third shallow bowl, place the eggs.

Step 4

Dip the shrimp, one at a time, in the flour, then in the eggs, then in the coconut bread crumb mixture.

Step 5

Place all of the shrimp in the basket of an air fryer and heat to 400 degrees F. Work in batches if necessary.

Step 6

Cook the shrimp until they are golden and cooked through at 145 degrees F, about 5-6 minutes. Keep a close eye on them, because the shrimp can start to burn if left in too long.

Step 7

While the shrimp are cooking, in a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sriracha sauce, and Thai sweet chili sauce.

Step 8

Serve the shrimp with the dipping sauce.
