I’ve been toying with this recipe for a long time and I think I have finally nailed it. If you follow this, you will see that the shrimp come out tasting identical to fried shrimp, minus the grease! Best of all, I use 100% Keto ingredients and no oil… at all! This recipe will make 2.5lbs of jumbo peeled shrimp.
- 4 eggs
- 1.5 cups almond flour
- 2.5lbs peeled and deveined shrimp
- 4oz. pork rinds of your choice
- Seasonings of choice
Peel and devein all of your shrimp and place in a large bowl. In another smaller bowl, beat 4 eggs. Add some seasoning to your egg wash before pouring over your shirmp.
Pour the egg wash over the shrimp and gently fold the shrimp into the egg wash.
In your food processor, put your 4oz. of pork rinds. I find it easier to crush the pork rinds in the bag before putting them in the processor. They fit much better. Add 1.5 cups of almond flour and add in your favorite seasonings here as well. Put on mixer and blend until well chopped and fine.
Set-up your battering station with your shirmp/eggwash, batter and air fryer, in that order, left to right. Take your shrimp from the eggwash, place in the batter, get both sides coated and place in a single layer in your air fryer. Do this until you fill your air fryer up evenly on 1 layer. DO NOT STACK THE SHRIMP! It won’t cook evenly. You may need to run it twice.
Air fry at 400 degrees for roughly 10 minutes or until you get the desired crunch you like. Remove from air fryer and enjoy however you like! I love these on mini street tacos with all the fixin’s but you can’t go wrong any way you go!
