Recipe by Louisiana Fish Fry Products

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 2 large eggs, beaten with 1 Tbsp. water
  • 1 (5 oz) box Louisiana Fish Fry Products Air Fryer Fish Seasoned Coating Mix
  • 1 lb. raw large or extra-large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sweet Thai chili sauce
  • 2 tsp. sriracha, plus more to taste
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced

PREPARATION

Preheat air fryer to 400° F. Add flour, salt, and pepper to a large resealable bag and shake to combine. Set two shallow containers on the work surface. Fill the first container with beaten eggs, and add Air Fryer Fish Coating Mix to the second container. Add shrimp to the bag with flour, seal and shake until shrimp are well coated. Remove shrimp, shake off excess flour and dip into eggs. Let excess egg drip off and cover completely with seasoned coating mix. Transfer shrimp to the air fryer, arranging in a single layer and coat top of shrimp with cooking spray. Work in batches if necessary to avoid crowding shrimp. Cook shrimp at 400° F for 4 minutes. Carefully flip shrimp and coat with cooking spray. Cook an additional 4 minutes until coating is crispy and shrimp are cooked through. Remove shrimp from air fryer and repeat if necessary. While onions cook, combine chili sauce, mayonnaise, and sriracha in a small mixing bowl. Taste and adjust spiciness with more sriracha. Arrange shrimp on serving platter with dip and garnish with scallions.
