  • 2 eggs 
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour 
  • 1/4 cup almond flour

  • salt 
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • Small Bowl
  • Large Bowl
  • Step 1

    In a small bowl, beat the eggs until smooth. In a large bowl, mix together the coconut flour, almond flour, and cajun spice blend. Season with salt and pepper.  

  • Step 2

    Insert the basket in the pot. Close the crisping lid. Select AIR CRISP, set temperature to 400 F, and set time to 5 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin.   

  • Step 3

    While the unit preheats, dip the shrimp into the egg. Once coated fully, place the flour mixture and toss the shrimp really well to make sure all sides are covered with breading.  

  • Step 4

    Once the unit is preheated, place the shrimp in the basket.  

  • Step 5

    Close the crisping lid. Select air crisp, set temperature to 400 F, and set time to 25 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin, shaking the basket every 10 minutes to ensure the shrimp crisp evenly. Check the shrimp again after 20 minutes. If you want them even crispier, continue cooking 3 to 4 minutes longer.

    When cooking is complete, serve the shrimp right away with lemon wedges.
