Air Fryer Blackened Shrimp

8/6/2022 – This was Mary’s first shrimp cook in her new Ninja Air Fryer. The shrimp turned out good and we learned a few things to make them better.


  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined.
  • Drizzle of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of our blackened seasoning
  • Chopped green onions from the Grow Boxes


  1. In a mixing bowl, seasoned shrimp with Blackening Seasoning, tossed with oil then let marinate in the refrigerator for several hours.
  2. Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees for 5 minutes.
  3. Oiled basket lightly and added shrimp. [Should have put more blackening on it then.]
  4. Cook at 400 degrees for 5-6 minutes, shaking once halfway through. This cook shook them at 2 minutes but should have waited to 3 minutes. Cook until shrimp turn pink.
