How to prepare shrimp in a fryer without oil

  1. Initial Preparation: We start by preheating the air fryer to a temperature of 200 degrees Celsius (390 degrees Fahrenheit).
  2. Meanwhile, we prepare the other ingredients. In a bowl, combine the olive oil, sea salt, paprika, garlic powder and black pepper. We mix everything until we obtain an aromatic marinade. If we don't have garlic powder we can add 2 finely chopped garlic.
  3. Marinating the prawns: Submerge the peeled and deveined prawns in the spice marinade, making sure to cover them completely. We let the shrimp soak in the flavor for a few minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, we take the opportunity to prepare a garnish or accompanying sauce of our choice. I recommend a good green salad.
  5. Cooked in the air fryer: Place the marinated shrimp in the basket of the air fryer, distributing them evenly. It is important not to put them too close together to guarantee adequate and homogeneous cooking.
  6. We turn on the air fryer and set the temperature to 200 degrees Celsius (390 degrees Fahrenheit). Cook the prawns for approximately 8-10 minutes, or until golden and crispy.
  7. Serve the dish: Carefully remove the crispy prawns from the oil-free fryer and place them on a decorative plate. We serve them immediately, accompanied by lemon slices to give them a citrus and refreshing touch.

I started cosmorecipes in 2020 during the time we were cooped up at home. Having so much free time I spent a lot of time in the kitchen trying different dishes. So I decided to mix cooking with my other great passion: web programming. That's why I decided to open this blog where I post the different recipes that I'm cooking.
