Air Fryer Shrimp

Do you have that one family member that tends to park themselves in front of the appetizers and think the appetizers are a meal all for themselves? I have one such family member - my son! He once sat down and polished off one pound of shrimp cocktail I had out for everyone in the house to enjoy. Now that I know how much my son loves shrimp, he's going to be happy that I've added shrimp to our holiday dinner menu! Shrimp is quick and easy to make in an air fryer, saving me time while I tend to other things in the kitchen. Have you tried cooking shrimp in an air fryer?...
