Air Fryer Coconut Shrimp

Serve with your favorite sweet and tangy dipping sauce, like pepper jelly!


1 pound, shell off, tail on shrimp 

1/4 cup all purpose flour

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

2 eggs

3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs

cooking spray

sweet chili sauce or pepper jelly sauce for serving



Preheat air fryer to 360 degrees. When heated spray the basket with cooking spray.

Combine flour, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Then combine the shredded coconut and panko breadcrumbs in a third bowl.

Dip the shrimp into the flour mixture, shaking of the excess. Then dredge the shrimp into the eggs, and then finally into the coconut panko mixture. Press gently so it will stick.

Place the coated shrimp in the air fryer so they are not touching, and spray the top of the shrimp with cooking spray. Cook for 5 minutes, then flip shrimp and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
