Frigidaire Air Fry Range

This recipe is specifically intended for full-size ovens with the air fry feature like the Frigidaire Air Fry Range I own. The cook times and temperatures for the range with air fry may vary from smaller countertop air fryers. Follow the recipes below for complete instructions. For small air fryers cooking time and temperatures may need to be adjusted. For the full review of the Frigidaire Air Fry Range go here. For my review of the Frigidaire Ready Cook Air Fry Tray

Gluten-Free coconut shrimp in the air fryer

I didn’t intend for this recipe to be gluten-free but the flavor of coconut flour complemented the unsweetened coconut and the crispy panko breadcrumbs so well that I preferred using coconut flour over all-purpose flour. Healthy ingredient swaps that enhance the flavor of the recipe and make it better for you are the perfect combination. Air frying is another healthy cooking tip, by spraying the coconut shrimp with avocado or olive oil and air frying instead of deep frying you can significantly reduce the calories and oil needed to reach a crispy “fried” texture.

Keto Air Fried Coconut Shrimp

To keep this recipe low carb and Keto friendly you can use fewer panko bread crumbs. One-quarter cup of panko has about 70 calories, including 14 grams of net carbs, 3 grams of protein, and a half gram of fat. Otherwise, swap out the Panko for ground pork rind breadcrumbs. Pork rind bread crumbs have zero carbs and are totally gluten-free. Lastly use almond meal instead of panko. All are great low-carb options but may have an overall effect on the flavor and crispness of the end result.

How to make Air Fried Coconut Shrimp

To start preheat the oven using the air fry function to 350° and remove the Ready Cook Air Fry Tray and cookie sheet drip pan from the oven. Line the sheet pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil and place the air fry tray on top. Be sure the drip pan you are using is this size to avoid oil and food debris from dripping on the bottom of the oven. Spray or brush the air fry tray with avocado oil.

Next, peel, devein and remove tails of the shrimp and rinse under cold water. Strain and place shrimp in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Combine the crack 1 large egg and add it to the shrimp and stir to combine and coat the shrimp.

In a shallow dish good for dredging add panko, coconut flour shredded coconut salt, and pepper. Stir with a fork to combine. In a separate dredging, dish crack 2 more large eggs and whisk with a fork until yolks and whites are combined. Working with one or two shrimp at a time dip them in the dry ingredients lightly coating all sides. Next, dip the shrimp in the dish with the eggs to coat and then place the shrimp back into the dry ingredients pressing the shrimp into the dry mixture and coat the shrimp with a thick layer of the coconut mixture. Place the shrimp on the oiled air fry basket one by one. Repeat these steps until all the shrimp have been fully coated.

Be sure not to overcrowd the air fry tray to allow air to flow around the shrimp. Spray each shrimp with Avocado oil. Place Ready Cook Air Fry Tray in the oven in the third position with a foil-lined baking sheet on the rack directly below.

Air Fry at 350° for 8-9 minutes, or until shrimp is fully cooked and crispy.

Coconut shrimp dipping sauce

To make a quick dipping sauce combine your favorite preserves with a little bit of sriracha chili sauce. We prefer apricot or apricot-pineapple preserves for this sauce but you could substitute orange, pineapple, or peach preserves if you prefer. I recommend adding a little bit of sriracha chili sauce at a time to reach your desired flavor and spice.
