Air Fryer Caribbean Jerk Shrimp did the trick with yummy and fresh island flavors.

It’s toward the end of winter, and lately the weather had been cloudy, cold, and rainy…Every. Dang. Day.

That’s certainly not a combo that promotes cheerfulness and good moods.

So I decided to at least bring some mood boosting Caribbean food into our kitchen.

You know, to at least fool us into thinking we were on vacation.

The key here is choosing a good, quality Caribbean Jerk seasoning.

Either this Homemade Caribbean Jerk Seasoning, or a store bought one.

I will sometimes make this homemade one and store it in an airtight container to use when I need it.

But I have also used the Caribbean Jerk seasoning at the Savory Spice Shop!

How to make Air Fryer Caribbean Jerk Shrimp

The shrimp are seasoned with soy sauce, garlic, lime juice, and the Caribbean Jerk seasoning of your choice.

Let them marinate for about 15 minutes and then place them in a single layer in the air fryer basket.

Sprinkle more seasoning over top as well.

I made kind of like a Caribbean rice bowl to serve our shrimp with.

As the shrimp cooked in the air fryer I made the rice in the microwave, using those Uncle Ben’s Jasmine Ready Rice pouches.

Super easy!

You could also use cauliflower rice to make this low carb.

Also I whipped up a Caribbean Jerk Mayo by whisking together light mayo, ketchup, lime juice, and more Caribbean Jerk seasoning.

Mango is a fruit that I struggle to cut properly.

So I used some help from the store and bought it already cut. All I had to do was dice it.

The aroma from these shrimp was amazing, my kitchen even smelled like the Caribbean 🙂

You could serve these shrimp just like this with Caribbean Jerk mayo for dipping, or make the rice bowls like I did.

If you’re opting for the bowls simply top the shrimp on a bed of rice and add mango, fresh cilantro, a lime wedge, and the Caribbean Jerk Mayo.

All you need to go with it is a nice rum punch with one of those little umbrellas 😉

Air Fryer Caribbean Jerk Shrimp is very “Caribbean-ish” according to my husband (haha) and has already been requested for dinner again very soon!
