This recipe for Perfect Air Fryer Shrimp offers a quick and delicious option for busy weeknight dinners. With just a handful of simple ingredients and under 10 minutes of cook time, you can have flavorful shrimp ready to enjoy in no time.

To start, mix extra-virgin olive oil with garlic powder, sweet paprika, dried parsley, and kosher salt in a medium bowl. This seasoning blend adds depth and flavor to the shrimp, ensuring each bite is bursting with deliciousness.

Next, add the jumbo peeled and deveined shrimp to the seasoning mixture and toss well to coat on both sides. Make sure the shrimp are evenly coated with the seasoning for maximum flavor.

Arrange the seasoned shrimp in the air fryer basket in a single layer, working in batches if needed to avoid overcrowding. This allows the shrimp to cook evenly and achieve a crispy texture.

Air fry the shrimp at 400°F for 5 to 6 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through to ensure even cooking. The high heat of the air fryer helps to quickly cook the shrimp to perfection, resulting in tender and flavorful seafood every time.

Once the shrimp are cooked through and lightly golden brown, remove them from the air fryer and serve immediately with lemon wedges on the side. The bright acidity of the lemon pairs perfectly with the savory shrimp, adding a refreshing touch to each bite.
