  • 1 lb shrimp (deveined, peeled, tails on or off)

For the shrimp marinade:

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 lemon (cut in two wedges, for serving)

For the shrimp dipping sauce:

  • 3 Tbsp ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp tomato Paste
  • Kosher salt
  • black paper
  • 1 tsp dried parsley flakes
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice


  • Add the ingredients for the shrimp marinade to a medium bowl and mix well. Add the shrimp and mix until evenly covered with the marinade.

  • Meanwhile, prepare the dipping sauce. Put all of the ingredients for the dipping sauce in a small bowl and whisk until well blended. You can just use a fork for that. If the sauce is too thick to your liking, you can thin it with a little bit of water.
  • Marinate for about 15 minutes at room temperature. If possible, marinate in a fridge overnight and even up to 24 hours. The longer  you marinate the better the flavors will be.
  • Place the shrimp on the rack of your air fryer, leaving some space in between for air circulation. Fry at 410F for about 6 minutes or until the internal temperature of the shrimp has reached 140F. Use an instant read thermometer to gauge the temperature. 
    Smaller shrimp will take 4-5 minutes to cook, while jumbo shrimp will require a few extra minutes to get done.
  • Once the shrimp are cooked, transfer them to a serving platter and serve with lemon wedges the dipping sauce while hot.
