  • Preheat your air fryer to 375. I like to lightly spray my basket with nonstick and place a piece of Parchment Paper in the lower area for an easy clean up. Also, clean (devein) and peel your shrimp, leaving the tail on them.

  • To make this, we are going to make a dredging station of three shallow bowls. In the first bowl use a fork or a whisk to mix your flour and seasonings. The second bowl is the whisked eggs. Lastly, in the third bowl mix together the coconut flakes and the low carb bread crumbs.

  • You may need to make this in batches depending on the size of your air fryer since you want to air fry your shrimp in a single layer in the basket for best results. Start by holding on to the tail of a shrimp and dredging in through the first bowl with the flour and seasonings, taking care to shake of any excess mix. Then dredge your shrimp though the eggs (shaking off excess) and then the coconut and bread crumbs (shaking off excess). Make sure that your shrimp are well covered (pressing the coating in place helps too).
  • Air fry for three minutes and flip the shrimp over. Then air fry for another 3-4 minutes or until done. Repeat process as needed to air fry all of your shrimp.

Recipe Notes

As mentioned, you will need a low carb bread crumb alternative for this recipe. I have a few choices for you to choose from.
There are some great low carb or keto friendly alternative to panko bread crumbs.
Nut crumbs is an alternative that has been rising in popularity lately. I am not a pork eater myself however, there are some folks who sing the praises for pork based (pork rinds etc) alternatives to breadcrumbs.
