Ready in just five minutes, this is our new favorite way to cook shrimp. Add the shrimp to pasta, stir fry or eat them by themselves for a light lunch.


If using frozen shrimp, thaw before cooking.


  • 1 Pound jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 Tablespoon grapeseed or avocado oil
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon paprika
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • Juice from 1 lemon


Preheat air fryer to 400F.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and toss until well combined.

Place shrimp in air fryer in a single layer. You may need to cook in batches if all of the shrimp do not fit.

Air fry for 4 minutes, flipping the shrimp halfway through.

Drizzle with lemon juice and serve.
