  • 1 lb shrimp shelled, deveined, cleaned
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs

For the sauce

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp sweet Thai chili sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp Sriracha
  • 1/4 tsp honey


  • Clean and dry the shrimp.
  • You need three shallow bowls. Add flour and salt to one bowl, egg to another bowl, and breadcrumbs to the third bowl. Start by coating the shrimp in flour, then dip it in the egg mixture, then coat it with breadcrumbs. Bread all the shrimp this way.
  • Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees F for 3-5 minutes.
  • Lightly spray air fryer basket with oil and place shrimp in the basket, leaving space between each shrimp. Lightly spray the tops of the shrimp.
  • Cook for 3 minutes. Flip shrimp over and cook for an additional 3 minutes. Large shrimp may need more time to cook through. Continue in small batches until all shrimp are cooked.
  • Mix the sauce ingredients together in a bowl. Once shrimp are cooked, toss the shrimp in a bowl with the sauce to fully coat.


Wait for the shrimp to cool slightly before tossing with the sauce to retain the crispy exterior.
Serve as an appetizer, or over rice as a meal.
