Shrimp Scampi from 'Every Day Easy Air Fryer'

READY IN: 16mins




  • 1. Place a 7-inch round baking pan in the air-fryer basket. Set the air fryer to 325°F for 8 minutes (this will preheat the pan so the butter will melt faster).
  • 2. Carefully remove the pan from the fryer and add the butter, lemon juice, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Place the pan back in the fryer.
  • 3. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring once, until the butter has melted. (Do not skip this step; this is what infuses the butter with garlic flavor, which is what makes it all taste so good.).
  • 4. Carefully remove the pan from the fryer and add the shrimp, broth, basil, and chives. Stir gently until the ingredients are well combined.
  • 5. Return the pan to the air fryer and cook for 5 minutes, stirring once.
  • 6. Thoroughly stir the shrimp mixture and let it rest for 1 minute on a wire rack. (This is so the shrimp cooks in the residual heat rather than getting overcooked and rubbery.).
  • 7. Stir once more, sprinkle with additional chopped fresh basil, and serve.
