Prep Time 2 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Servings 1 pound of shrimp


  • Air Fryer


  • 1 lb frozen raw peeled jumbo shrimp see size note below
  • Cooking spray or olive oil spray
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper


  • Place shrimp in the air fryer basket.
  • Lightly spray the shrimp with cooking spray or mist lightly with olive oil.
  • Cook at 400°F for 5 minutes. At the halfway point, flip the shrimp and create one single layer in the air fryer. Season with salt and pepper. Cook for an additional 4-5 minutes.


I recommend using  jumbo shrimp for this recipe. Extra large shrimp are 26-30 per pound and jumbo are 21-25 shrimp per pound. If using extra large, reduce the second final cooking time to 3-4 minutes versus 5minutes for jumbo.
