Air fryer Japanese Ebi fry shrimp. You can make this popular Japanese dish in your air fryer. Ebi fry is deep-fried, but it can’t be baked well. The Air Fryer can crisp up shrimp beautifully and without any resulting mess. This Ebi fry recipe is easy to make and is perfect for a packed lunch!

What is an Air Fryer and Why Use it for Shrimp?

Air fryers are a popular appliance in the kitchen that is typically used for cooking food. They are also often used for cooking shrimp.

Air fryers are not just for cooking but they can also be used to prepare healthy meals and snacks. You can make crispy and crunchy shrimp in an air fryer without any oil or butter by using a little bit of water or broth as the liquid.

The Japanese Ebi is a type of shrimp that is commonly found in Asian cuisine and they have very long legs that make them difficult to cook with traditional methods like boiling or frying.

What is Ebi Fry?

Tasty! Japanese panko bread crumbs give our Japanese shrimp a delicious crisp coating. The shrimp is then deep-fried and served with tartar sauce on the side, making for an easy and delicious meal.

What is the Difference Between Ebi Fry and Tempura?

At the same time, making shrimp tempura is actually quite difficult. To achieve a crisp and light crust, these proteins have to be dipped in a wet batter before being fried. Like many Japanese dishes, tempura has a reputation for requiring extensive cooking talent, but most home cooks are quite capable if they know what they’re doing. Most of the time, tempura is best enjoyed when it’s made in a restaurant setting.

Ebi fry is known for its lack of over-the-top seasoning, using light salt and pepper only instead. Tempura, on the other hand, tends to be more greasy and oily from deep frying. Luckily they are both delicious!

Step One: Preparing the Air Fryer

It is important to clean the air fryer before and after use. The first step is to remove all the food particles from the cooking basket and grease filter. The next step is to wipe down the exterior of the appliance with a damp cloth.

An air fryer should be cleaned before and after use, but it’s not as easy as it sounds. Many people are not aware of how much food particles can accumulate in an air fryer over time, which can lead to a buildup of grease and other unhealthy substances in your kitchen appliance.

The first step in cleaning an air fryer is removing all food particles from the cooking basket and grease filter. The second step entails wiping down the exterior of your appliance with a damp cloth, which will help keep it looking new for longer.

Step Two: Making the Japanese Ebi Fry Shrimp (optional)

The second step of making the Japanese Ebi fry shrimp is to make a marinade for the shrimp. The marinade consists of soy sauce, sake, mirin, garlic cloves, and ginger. You can also add onion to this mixture if you want.

Step One: Make a paste of yuzu citrus fruit by grating it with a zester or using a blender.

Step Two: Make the marinade for the Japanese Ebi fry shrimp by combining soy sauce, sake, mirin, garlic cloves, and ginger in a mixing bowl.
