Air Fryer Shrimp Po’Boy are so easy to make, but they make for a great dinner, lunch, or even snack! So, if you love shrimp, you will absolutely love this recipe!
This is a great twist on a traditional classic Louisiana Po’Boy sandwich. Today, I didn’t deep-fry the shrimp; instead, I used a simple sauce and made a twist on the classical coconut shrimp used in this recipe.
The result was a flavorful but healthy sandwich with loads and loads of flavor and made for a great summertime meal. Light, flavorful, and delicious. Served up with a homemade remoulade sauce and garnished with garden lettuce and vine ripe tomatoes.
Oh, so good!
If you have not made shrimp in the Air Fryer yet, you are so missing out. There is no better way to perfectly cooked it up!

Ingredients Needed For Air Fryer Shrimp Po’Boy

How To Make Air Fryer Shrimp Po’Boy
In a large bowl, mix the shrimp, butter, minced garlic, creole seasoning. Place the coated shrimp into the air fryer basket, and set the temperature to 390 degrees F, air fryer setting for 5 to 8 minutes.
When the shrimp is fully cooked, place your lettuce and tomato slices into the French Bread or Hoagie roll, and then add your shrimp. Drizzle with the Remoulade Sauce.
WHAT KIND OF SHRIMP SHOULD YOU BUY?
The best thing about an American grocery store is there are so many options, which might leave you confused.
I recommend that you use a shrimp about 16/20, which is referred to as jumbo shrimp. The best shrimp to get for this dish would be peeled and deveined, with the tails removed. This way, you do not have to do it.
FROZEN OR FRESH SHRIMP?
The trust is that shrimp cooks up so fast that you can either use fresh or frozen.
I have cooked this recipe several times, and I have used frozen and fresh, and the cooking times are almost the same.

A traditional Po’Boy is served with lettuce, either iceberg or Romaine, and then sliced tomatoes, beefsteak, or another hearty variety.
You can also add some sliced dill pickles, sliced red onions, or even sliced bell peppers.

The best bread for a traditional Po’Boy is a hearty and crunchy bread, either French Bread or a Hoagie roll if you can not find a French Bread.
