My son loves shrimp. It is the reason why I have so many shrimp recipes on my website. I like to change it up. Today I am bringing you a classic Italian sauce with some perfectly air-fried shrimp—Air Fryer Shrimp with Creamy Garlic Butter.



Shrimp Ingredients:

  • 1 pound of frozen or fresh shrimp
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning

Sauce Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 cup of chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup of heavy cream


Simple Shrimp Directions:

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees F for about 5 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the shrimp with the olive oil, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning.
  3. Place the fresh or frozen shrimp into the air fryer basket.
  4. Set the temperature to 400 degrees F for 5-7 minutes, shaking the basket halfway during air frying.
  5. Mix the shrimp with the sauce.
  6. Plate, serve, and enjoy!

Simple Sauce Directions:

  1. In a small saucepan, add the butter and garlic. Head for about 30 seconds, and then add the chicken broth, heavy cream, Parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning. Mix well and continue to simmer, constantly stirring, so it does not burn.
