Air Fryer Shrimp "Boil"


All the flavors you love in a shrimp boil in a fraction of the time and with a lot less mess. No need to wait for a pot of water to boil just to stand over it making sure it doesn't boil over. Air fryer to the rescue! While this is a less messy version, the way I chose to cut the corn still lets you dig in and get your hands messy for that authentic touch. The cob creates a perfect handle for holding while the kernels face upright for easy access.

4 servings


  • 1 pound baby red potatoes

  • ¼ cup water

  • 8 ounces Cajun-style andouille sausage, sliced

  • 1 ear corn, sliced in half lengthwise and cut into 2-inch pieces

  • 1 medium onion, sliced into petals

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 3 teaspoons seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay®), divided

  • 1 pound raw large shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges


  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Place potatoes in a microwave-safe bowl. Add water and microwave on high for 5 minutes. Run the bowl under cold water until potatoes are cool enough to touch.

  3. Slice potatoes in half lengthwise and place in a large bowl. Add sausage, corn, and onion. Mix in 3 tablespoons olive oil and 2 teaspoons seafood seasoning; stir to coat.

  4. Place shrimp in a separate bowl and add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 teaspoon seafood seasoning; stir to coat.

  5. Place 1/2 of the potato mixture in the basket of the air fryer and cook for 10 minutes. Stir and cook for another 5 minutes. Add 1/2 of the shrimp and cook until potatoes are tender, sausage is cooked through, and shrimp are bright pink on the outside and meat is opaque, about 5 more minutes. Transfer to a serving plate and repeat with remaining potato mixture and shrimp. Serve with lemon wedges.
