Tips For Making This Recipe
Every air fryer is not the same. It may take your air fryer longer or shorter than 10 minutes to cook the shrimp completely. Best to work in batches for even cooking. The size of the shrimp will also make a difference on how long it will take the shrimp to cook completely.
