2 tbsp olive oil
24 (1 lb.) cleaned and peeled, extra jumbo shrimp
1 tbsp Cajun or Creole seasoning
6 oz. fully cooked Turkey/Chicken, Andouille sausage or kielbasa, sliced
1 large red bell pepper, seeded and cut into thin 1-inch pieces
1 medium zucchini, 8 ounces, sliced into 1/4-inch thick half moons
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 medium yellow squash, 8 oz., sliced into 1/4-inch thick half moons
How to make Air Fryer Cajun Shrimp Dinner
Step 1: Place the Cajun seasoning and shrimp in a large bowl. Toss well to coat.
Step 2: To the bowl, add the sausage along with the zucchini, squash, bell peppers, and salt. Toss with the oil.
Step 3: Prepare the air fryer and preheat it to 400 degrees F.
Step 4: Transfer the shrimp and veggies (in 2 batches) to the fryer basket. Set to cook for 8 minutes, shaking the air fryer basket 2 to 3 times. Do the same for the remaining shrimp and veggies.
Step 5: To the air fryer, return the first batch once both batches are cooked, then cook for a minute.
I recommend buying frozen shrimp and just defrost them as needed. Thaw the shrimp in the fridge to defrost.
