How To Make Air Fryer Frozen Tempura Shrimp:
Place the frozen shrimp onto the Air Fryer Basket or on the Tray. Set in the air fryer for 5 minutes at 390 degrees F, air fryer setting, and then flip and air fry for another 5 minutes.
Can You Air Fry Shrimp Tempura?
Yes, you can easily cook any frozen food in the Air Fryer. The air fryer does an amazing job at crisping up the food without the added fat and oil that traditional deep-frying uses.
Depending on your air fryer, you might have to flip it. Otherwise, you can easily toss it in, and it will cook perfectly without any added oil.
Can You Air Fry Tempura Batter?
A lot of people have problems with using wet batters in the Air Fryer. The key really is that you need to make sure that the batter sticks onto the shrimp before placing it in the air fryer basket or on the air fryer tray.
Without a mat, the batter will completely slide off.

This recipe will work with any frozen tempura shrimp or vegetables that you purchase; the most common are the ones from either Setapak or Trader Joe’s.
