  • Yield: 2-4 servings 1x


  • 1 lb. large shrimp, peeled and deveined (thawed, if using frozen)
  • 1 Tbsp. light olive oil
  • 1 whole egg, mixed
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup flour
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • Parsley, to garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine olive oil, egg white, garlic and garlic powder. Place Parmesan cheese and flour in another medium bowl. Place shrimp in oil and egg mixture; toss until coated. Once coated, place shrimp in the bowl with parmesan cheese and flour; toss until fully coated.
  3. Lightly spray fryer basket with nonstick cooking spray. Place shrimp in basket and insert into air fryer. Cook for 7-9 minutes, or until shrimp is cooked through. (May have to cook in batches, depending on air fryer size.) Serve with lemon slices and your favorite Asian-style condiment or sauce. Garnish with parsley (optional). Makes 2-4 servings.
