Air Fryer Cajun Shrimp

One of my favorite meals to make on a Friday night after a long week. Shrimp. Sauteed. Steamed. And now air fryed! 

I mix up a breading with my own Cajun seasoning Click here for recipe and it only took 5 minutes in the air fryer. They were crispy without being tough. I honestly didn't even use anything to dip them in. 

The next day, I took the leftovers and popped them into a Pita with some cucumbers, radishes and tzatsiki sauce. The perfect lunch! 


  • 1 lb shrimp with tails left on
  • 1 tbsp Cajun seasoning
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese


  1. Mix everything together, except shrimp, in a container.
  2. Add the shrimp, put the lid on and give it a few shakes. 
  3. If you have time, let the shrimp sit in the fridge for a little while. This really helps the breading stay on. 
  4. Place in the air fryer basket on 390 for 5 minutes. I gave them a toss and a shake 2 times during that 5 minutes. 

This recipe made 2 servings at 2 pts on Weight Watchers Freestyle program.
