How to make air fryer shrimp:

First, take the shrimp and run under cold water. Pat dry with a paper towel.

Second, mix together the shrimp, olive oil and all the seasonings to make sure the shrimp is well coated. I normally use a medium size bowl to do this.

Next, you need to preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees. No worries if you do not have this setting. Just run it on 400 degrees for 5 minutes.

Finally, put the shrimp in the basket so they can cook. Make sure to do this in a single layer. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may have to cook them in batches.
