Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 4 servings


  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

Serve with a side of Remoulade sauce, as they do at Outback


  1. Start by removing the veins (Outback leaves the shells on, I took them off since I was giving them to my children, and it's easier to eat without the tail)

  2. Thread them through the skewer.  As you thread them, place them in either a greased air fryer basket or on an air fryer tray. 

  3. Then melt the butter, mix in the spices.

  4. Brush the sauce onto the shrimp

  5. Set in the air fryer oven or basket, and set the temperature for 400 degrees for 5 minutes.

  6. Plate, serve and enjoy!
