  • Heat up your air fryer to 375°F.

  • Rinse the shrimps under lukewarm water. Take a paper towel and dry the shrimps until there's no left water. Peel and devein the shrimps. In a medium bowl, toss the shrimps with olive oil and smoked paprika. Use a few drops of olive oil to brush the air fryer basket. 

  • Take half of the shrimps and put them in the air fryer for 7 minutes. Then repeat the same procedure with the other half. When the second half is ready, take the shrimps out and let them cool down.

  • Melt the butter, and mix with the cajun seasoning. Toss the cooked shrimps in the mixture. Arrange the dish in a large bowl and enjoy!


  • You can also melt the butter in the microwave. But make sure you don't use a plastic bowl, otherwise, it can melt.

  • Fresh shrimps are the perfect option, but frozen shrimps could be an alternative. In this case, rinse them twice, so that you remove all the dirt.

  • Deveining the shrimp is easy. Just use a paring knife and be careful not to cut your fingers.

Bon Appetit!
