This easy recipe for Air Fryer Bacon Wrapped Shrimp tastes so fancy but whips up in minutes! Delicious flavors with a touch of barbecue.
AIR FRYER BACON WRAPPED SHRIMP
One request I seem to have gotten over and over recently is for more air fryer recipes and more shrimp recipes. So, I thought I would combine the two! These shrimp work perfect as an appetizer or as a main dish. They really are so simple to make and turn out perfectly crisp in the air fryer!
TIPS FOR MAKING THIS AIR FRYER APPETIZER/MEAL:
- For extra sweetness, I used Sweet Baby Rays honey BBQ sauce.
- This recipe can also be done with medium shrimp. Cut the bacon slices into thirds instead of half.
- You can also leave out chili powder if you don’t want it spicy. Or for an even bigger kick, add in cayenne pepper, but start with 1 teaspoon instead of a tablespoon.
- Eight minutes was the exact right amount of crispness , but you can add 1 or 2 minutes if you like it even crispier.
- Serve as an appetizer, a side dish, or even as a meal.

HOW TO MAKE AIR FRYER BACON GARLIC SHRIMP:
In a medium bowl, combine garlic salt, chili powder, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and bbq sauce, stir to mix sauce until it's well combined. Add shrimp and using a spoon, stir sauce around shrimp, until it has coated shrimp.
Wrap each shrimp with ½ slice of bacon and then skewer with a toothpick or metal skewer. Once each piece of shrimp is skewered, pour sauce over then one last time to ensure all pieces are covered with sauce.
Preheat air fryer to 370F degrees for 4 minutes. Add wrapped shrimp to the basket. Optional: pour the remaining sauce over the shrimp. Select the shrimp option on your air fryer (if you have that option on yours.) Cook at 360F degrees for 8 minutes.
