Air Fryer Breaded Shrimp


Perfectly seasoned crispy-fried shrimp in the air fryer. I like to keep the tails on to utilize as a handle but feel free to discard if desired. Serve with cocktail sauce or favorite dipping sauce.

4 servings


  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay®)

  • ½ tablespoon paprika

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon dried parsley

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 large eggs, beaten

  • 12 ounces large shrimp - peeled, deveined, and tails left on

  • nonstick cooking spray


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

  2. Place flour, Old Bay®, paprika, salt, parsley, and black pepper in a gallon-sized resealable plastic bag. Zip and shake to combine.

  3. Using a paper towel, pat shrimp dry. Working in batches add shrimp to the seasoned flour and toss to combine. Dip shrimp in the beaten egg and then back in the seasoned flour. Place breaded shrimp in the basket of the air fryer; making sure to not overcrowd.

  4. Spray the tops with nonstick cooking and cook for 4 minutes. Open the basket and spray any chalky spots with nonstick cooking spray. Cook for 3 minutes more or until desired crispness. Serve immediately.
