When we had our most recent game night with another couple, I knew I wanted to make air fryer buffalo shrimp of some sort.

When friends come over for game nights it’s a MUST to have fun snacks, right?!

But you don’t want to be worried about spending all your time in the kitchen of course.

How to Make Air Fryer Buffalo Shrimp

Marinate a pound of jumbo shrimp, minus the shells, in some buffalo sauce. Just use your favorite kind, I used Frank’s.

bottle of buffalo wing sauce

Marinate for 10-20 minutes.

Spray the air fryer with nonstick spray and then into the basket they go in a single layer.

Oh, I almost forgot…pat them dry with paper towels before marinating them 🙂

This helps the sauce to stick a little better.

Set the air fryer to 400 degrees for 7 minutes.

Then, very important step here…brush them with more of the buffalo sauce and back into the air fryer for 1 more minute.

We made them without brushing them for the test batch and they weren’t nearly as buffalo-y.

Yes, I make up fun words like buffalo-y sometimes 😉

Finally toss your shrimp in more of the buffalo sauce.

Serve with ranch or blue cheese for dipping.

There’s a place by our house that has the BEST homemade blue cheese, so we picked up some of that to-go.

It was so yummy with the delicious air fryer buffalo shrimp 🙂

  • 1 pound jumbo shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 cup buffalo wing sauce (I used Frank’s Buffalo Wing Sauce)
  • ranch or blue cheese for dipping
  • nonstick cooking spray


  1. Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels. Place in a bowl and toss with 1/4 cup of the buffalo wings sauce. Let this marinate for 20 minutes.

  2. Spray the air fryer basket with nonstick spray. Place the shrimp in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Set the air fryer for 7 minutes at 400 degrees. After the 7 minutes, brush more buffalo sauce on each shrimp and place back in the air fryer for 1 more minute.

  3. Toss them in a bowl with more of the buffalo sauce. Serve with ranch or blue cheese for dipping.

    Note: These are also good to put in buffalo shrimp wraps or salads.
