Simple to put together with only 4 ingredients, but big on flavor! I like to use "extra jumbo" size shrimp, which are 16-20 per pound. Cutting the bacon lengthwise into narrow strips makes it easier to wrap. Refrigerating the shrimp, as well as using thin-cut bacon, will prevent the shrimp from overcooking in the time it takes to crisp the bacon.

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

  • Air-fry shrimp for 3 minutes. Flip and continue cooking until bacon is lightly crispy, 4 to 5 minutes more. You may have to do 2 batches depending on the size of your air fryer.

  • Remove shrimp to a plate and drizzle with hot honey. Serve immediately, being watchful of any toothpicks.

I made this last night and it was delicious. It was a little difficult getting the shrimp in my air fryer with the toothpicks on - my air fryer is small so there’s not much room. But the finished product was great! Read More

Just not the same as direct pan frying. Air fryers just don’t produce the desired result. Read More

OUTSTANDING!!! I was searching for bacon wrapped shrimp recipes for my son's birthday as they are his fave. I hadn't even thought to make them in the air fryer til I stumbled across this recipe. They couldn't be easier and cooked up perfectly! Bacon was just how we like it, cooked through with some crispy edges. They disappeared in minutes and I've already received requests to make it again.
