How long to fry shrimp

  • Spice mix: Combine the spices with the oil and then add the prawns.
  • Air frying: Arrange the raw shrimp in a single layer in the basket. If they don't all fit, you may need to make another batch. Air fry them at 400°F for five to six minutes, shaking the basket halfway through.

What to Serve with Air Fryer Shrimp

How to store shrimp

Store leftover shrimp in airtight containers for three to four days in the refrigerator. You can eat them cold or reheat them in the microwave for 30 seconds.


  • Shrimp: To save time, you can purchase fresh or frozen shrimp that are already peeled and cleaned. If using frozen shrimp, thaw them before adding the spices.
  • Spices: Switch up the spices for your favorite store-bought mixes, like Old Bay or Tajin, or make your own combination. Add onion powder or replace parsley with oregano.
  • No air fryer? No problem! Cook them in a pan for about three minutes on each side.
