Air-Fryer Breaded Shrimp Tips
Should you leave the tails on air-fryer breaded shrimp?
It’s totally OK to leave the tails on your air-fryer breaded shrimp, but if you prefer to not have to deal with them while eating, you can remove them.
Can you can use frozen shrimp for this recipe?
It may seem counter-intuitive, but trust us: Unless you’re certain that the fresh shrimp at your market has never been frozen, then frozen shrimp is a better, safer and tastier option. Either way, make sure your fresh or frozen shrimp have been patted dry before coating to get an even coverage. Patting the shrimp dry will also help guarantee that the breading will stick nicely—which is half the battle when breading and air-frying your favorite foods.
