Super light and crispy popcorn shrimp made in an air fryer. I like to leave the tails on as a handle but feel free to remove them. Serve with cocktail sauce and lemon wedges if desired.

  • Dip each flour-coated shrimp in egg, toss in panko mixture, and place on a baking sheet. Let rest for 5 minutes while the air fryer is preheating.

  • Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for 5 minutes.

  • Spray the basket of the air fryer with cooking spray. Arrange 1/2 of the shrimp in the basket. Mist the top of each shrimp with cooking spray.

  • Cook for 4 minutes. Using tongs, flip each shrimp over and mist any chalky spots with cooking spray. Cook 4 minutes more. Repeat with remaining shrimp.
