Discover a delightful crunch and tropical flair for dinner with our Air Fried Coconut Shrimp! Prepared in an air fryer, this shrimp recipe champions a healthier approach to achieving that desirable crispy texture without the excess oil of traditional frying. Dip your perfectly crispy shrimp into our vibrant lemon-orange sauce, made with the natural sweetness from Lemon Twist BetterStevia® liquid drops.


  1. Stir together ingredients for dipping sauce in a small saucepan until cornstarch is dissolved. Heat over low heat and bring to a simmer. Simmer sauce for 3-4 minutes, until thickened. Cool to room temperature.
  2. While sauce cools, lightly grease basket of air fryer. Add flour to one bowl, beat eggs in a second bowl, and stir together coconut, Panko breadcrumbs, salt and pepper in a third bowl. Blot moisture from shrimp using paper towels. Working in 2-3 batches, hold shrimp by the tail and coat in flour, followed by egg and lastly dredge in coconut mixture.
  3. Place in basket of air fryer and cook at 380ºF for 7-8 minutes or until coating is crisp and golden brown. Repeat with second batch of shrimp.
  4. Serve shrimp with lemon-orange chili dipping sauce. Garnish with green onion.
