What are the benefits of air frying shrimp?
Air frying is a cooking technique that uses air to circulate heated air around the food. It is a healthy way of cooking because it does not use oil.
This method of cooking does not require any oil for the food to cook in, making it healthier than other methods like deep frying. Air frying also contains fewer calories because it can cook without adding oil, which has been shown to keep people eating more due to the texture and taste of the food.
Would this dish be good for a dinner party?
When you are hosting a dinner party, the most important thing is making sure, that all your guests are happy. This means having dishes that people will enjoy and want to eat.
It is also good to have some dishes that allow people to mix and match. This way they can try one dish but still be able to order something else if they choose not to like it.
For example, you could make a selection of starters like flavourful dips or salads with contrasting textures (crunchy and creamy). Then, for the main course, offer different types of meat (steak, chicken), fish (salmon, tuna), or vegetarian options (pasta or risotto).

Preheat your air fryer to 400° F (200° C). Place half of the shrimp in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Cook for 3 minutes, then flip and continue cooking for a further 3 minutes or until golden brown. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Repeat with remaining shrimp.
