Festive and absolutely flavorful, this easy Air Fryer Shrimp “Boil” is a quick and easy weeknight dinner prepared with potatoes, juicy corn, sausages, and shrimp.
One of my favorite things about shrimp boil is its utter simplicity. All you need are your basic ingredients, and then a simple seasoning mix! That keeps prep time low, and makes this easy meal even more fool-proof.
1 pound raw jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails ON or OFF
2 ears corn, husked and each ear cut into 5 rounds
8 ounces new potatoes, quartered
6 ounces andouille sausage, cut into 1-inch rounds
4 tablespoons butter, melted
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 teaspoons old bay seasoning
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
Lemon wedges, for serving
Lightly grease the air fryer basket with cooking spray and preheat to 370˚F.
Pat dry the cleaned shrimp and place them in a small mixing bowl; set aside.
In a separate mixing bowl combine the corn rounds, potatoes, and sausages; set aside.
Melt the butter; then into the melted butter stir the garlic, old bay seasoning, and cayenne pepper.
Pour about a 1/4 of the melted butter mixture over the shrimp.
Add the rest of the butter to the potato mixture and toss to combine.
Transfer the potato mixture to the air fryer basket and cook for 10 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through cooking.
When the 10 minutes are up, add the shrimp to the basket and continue to cook for 4 more minutes.
Transfer to a serving plate and serve with lemon wedges.
