How to reheat cajun shrimp
The easiest way to reheat cajun shrimp is in the air fryer. Simply preheat it to 370°F, and then cook for 3-4 minutes until warm (flip halfway through). If heating from frozen, allow another 5-8 minutes.
You can also reheat shrimp on the stovetop by heating a small amount of oil over medium heat and cooking them for 3-4 minutes.
1 ½ pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 Tablespoons cajun or creole seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
In a large bowl, add the shrimp, olive oil, cajun seasoning, garlic powder, and lemon juice, and toss to coat the shrimp.
Transfer the shrimp to the air fryer basket in a single layer and cook to 360ºF for 4 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
Remove from the basket and serve immediately. Enjoy!
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days or in the freezer for up to 4 months.
