Coconut Shrimp



I am in love with my air fryer! I have been using it almost every day for our family meals because it cooks faster than a conventional oven and clean up is minimal. I have been using it for roasting a variety of veggies such as sweet bell peppers, cabbage, green beans, broccoli, as well as chicken breasts, pork chops, steak and now shrimp! They are definitely worth the investment!


For this shrimp recipe, I used a combination of almond flour, unsweetened coconut flakes and spices. Feel free to change out the spices to the spices of your choice!


Dip the shrimp in egg whites. Then place the shrimp in the almond flour coconut mixture. I used a medium sized bowl and tossed the shrimp around until it was coated as evenly as possible. Then place the shrimp in the air fryer. Spray lightly with cooking spray. Cook at 400 degrees for 4 min and then flip the shrimp to the other side. Spray lightly with cooking spray and cook for an additional 4 more min. Delicious lightly breaded shrimp without all the oil! I served it with 2 tbsp of Trader Joes Green Goddess Dressing as 1 Condiment! Sooo delicious! Enjoy!
