This is a very easy and simple recipe for basil pesto shrimp kebabs, feel free to make your own pesto, especially when fresh basil is available at your local fruit market.


  • 1 pound shrimp (defrosted)
  • 16 ounces basil pesto (or make your own)


  1. Start by defrosting the shrimp, see the blog post for instructions.
  2. Pour in the basil pesto sauce and mix well, covering the shrimp
  3. As you thread them through the skewer, place them on a greased air fryer oven sheet or in a greased air fryer basket.
  4. Place in the air fryer oven or basket and set the temperature to 400 degrees F for 5 minutes.  Once they are opaque in color pull them out, as you don’t want them to overcook.
