Have you ever tried cooking shrimp using an air fryer? Well, this is a super simple way to have your shrimp cooked fast and without fuss…and it is delicious topped on zucchini noodles tossed with pesto sauce.
It has been a long time since I last posted a recipe or anything…I had a long break and during this time so much had happened, some good and some not so good…I should start with the “not so good” one…
When I decided to come back blogging I encountered a major mess on the website as we had some glitch on the hosting/server system and all the posts and pages got lost and the comments nowhere to be found. I am still working on retrieving the posts, one by one… and updating as much as I can. I almost gave up on blogging but decided to rebuild and take it slowly…without any pressure and revisiting the old posts, it was like looking at old photo albums…now the comments are totally gone, and I am very sadden by it as lots of great memories were in it, all the people I met and visited…
Now, the good news…we move to a new house…after searching for our forever home for almost two years we finally move into our dream home where we plan to retire. It was a lot of work moving and redecorating the house. Fast forward 3 months…we finally have it the way we like and start to really enjoy the new neighborhood and all the amenities that the city offer.
With all that said, I am still in the process of coming back, gathering my thoughts together but decided to say “HELLO” and post a simple recipe…using my air fryer which I am still in love with. Confession…I cheated on the pesto sauce and used the one from Trader Joe’s….
So here we go…
- ½ lb shrimp, clean and deveined
- ½ tablespoon olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 large zucchini, spiralized
- Pesto sauce, store bought or homemade.
Preheat the air fryer according to the manufacture’s instruction at 350F.
In a medium bowl, place the shrimps, olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss gently and place in the air fryer basket. Cook for approximately 7 minutes, make sure to “shake” the basket once in between cooking time.
While the shrimps are in the air fryer, blanch the spiralized zucchini. Drain well and set aside.
To serve, toss pesto sauce to the blanched zucchini and top with the air fried shrimps. Serve hot.
