Easy air fryer shrimp recipe

If you enjoy both shrimp and bacon, why not combine the two for an easy-to-make meal in the air fryer. This is the ideal option for everyone, whether you’re searching for an appetizer, side dish, or even simple dinner recipes. And it’ll undoubtedly become one of your go-to shrimp dishes. Additionally, this is unquestionably the finest method for cooking it!

Every mouthful is bursting with goodness thanks to the brown sugar in the rub’s exceptional sweetness and the savory notes of the bacon, garlic, and smoked paprika. Additionally, cooking the bacon under the broiler or in the oven results in significant calorie and cholesterol reduction.

Furthermore, this is a straightforward dish that works well as an appetizer, particularly for Super Bowl parties. These really are simply impossible to ignore because of the dry rub and the smoky bacon. Serve them with your preferred dipping condiment, such as ranch dressing, blue cheese, or BBQ sauce. Serve them with lemon juice for a healthier snack.
