  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 cloves garlic minced or ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 pound medium shrimp peeled and deveined, tails removed


  • Whisk Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, paprika, and onion powder in a small bowl. Stir in garlic.
  • Make sure shrimp are deveined and peeled and tails are removed. Toss with olive oil and seasoning.
  • Place in a single layer in air fryer basket. Cook at 400°F for 4 minutes, then check. If they're not quite done, shake the basket and keep going. Shrimp will cook in between 4-8 minutes depending on size. Shrimp is one when it’s pink on both sides and forms a gentle “C” shape.
  • Serve immediately. Store leftovers in refrigerator.



  • Be sure to peel, devein, and remove the tails from the shrimp before cooking them.
  • When you air fry shrimp, be sure to check on them early. Overcooked shrimp will have a rubbery texture, so don’t leave them in too long.
  • If you don’t want to use fresh garlic, you can use ¼ teaspoon garlic powder instead of two fresh garlic cloves.
  • Once you try this seasoning mix, have fun experimenting with other spices in your pantry! The possibilities are endless to come up with all kinds of shrimp recipes.
  • This is a great dish for parties, but don’t leave the shrimp out at room temperature for more than two hours. If it’s hot, you should refrigerate them even sooner.
