Air Fryer Shrimp Taco Salad

In these hot summer months - I love having quick and easy dinners that are also light and refreshing! This shrimp taco salad is perfect for any night of the week.  

Can you air fryer shrimp? 

Of course! I love my air fryer to make the shrimp - it cooks up so quick - and doesn't heat the stove up or make a mess! I sprinkle the shrimp with seasoning and it's done in 5 minutes (flip halfway through). That's it!!! 

Throwing together a taco salad is one of the easiest meals for me to make - I've always got a bag of lettuce on hand (romaine is my favorite) and then I just add avocado or guacamole, cheese, salsa and sour cream! 

Shrimp is so easy in the air fryer - and don't overcook it! It just needs a few minutes. I always pop the tails off too before I cook them so they're easy to eat. 

You can find more ideas in my Air Fryer Recipes section or in my Air Fryer Facebook group!
