I served these Air Fryer Cajun Shrimp over a salad, but they could easily be served as a meal. Or even over pasta.
Making shrimp in the air fryer is one of my favorite ways. They cook evenly every time and with a slight crisp on the edges.
Plus it’s nice to just pop them in the air fryer, set it, and forget it.
How to Make Air Fryer Cajun Shrimp
This is a pound of jumbo shrimp that I peeled and deveined. Pat them dry so the seasoning and oil sticks a little better and put them in a bowl.
Then add 1 1/2 Tablespoons cajun seasoning.
My seasoning already has the perfect amount of salt and pepper so I didn’t feel the need to add any salt and pepper.
Next add a Tablespoon each olive oil and garlic paste (or minced garlic).
Toss the shrimp in the bowl until they are evenly coated with the seasoning, olive oil, and garlic.
Then put them in the air fryer basket in a single layer.
Set the air fryer to 400 degrees for 8 to 9 minutes.
Man, oh man… they smell just as good as they look!
Serve Air Fryer Cajun Shrimp right away, or wait til they cool if serving with a salad 🙂
