First, make sure the shrimp are peeled.
After that is necessary to wash and dry them, you can also dry them with paper towels and then put them in a big bowl. Once that’s done, add olive oil and spices to the bowl. Mix them together and make sure all ingredients are well mixed with shrimps.
Throw the shrimp in an air fryer basket and air fry them for 8 mins at 390 F.
Give them a shake when they are halfway done.
Step-3: Preparing the Tacos
Once the shrimp are done, take out 1 flour tortilla. Warm it up slightly on the pan for 2 mins. Apply 1 tbsp of olive oil to it and add 2 tbsp of minced cabbage, beet, and tomatoes to it. And finally add shrimps to it. That’s it.
For a more delicious and crunchy taste, you can add some bacon to your tortillas as well. For this, simply air fry bacon strips by cutting them into small pieces, and adding them to your tortillas.
Instead of warming up the tortilla in a pan, you can fill it with all ingredients and warm it up in an air fryer for 3 mins at 375 F.
Avoid placing a lot of shrimp in the air fryer; make sure to leave some space between them.
I would recommend drying shrimp before seasoning them for better crispiness. You can simply use a paper towel to dry them.
Do not overcook the shrimp, or else they will get dry.
What to try with air fryer shrimp tacos
