Breaded Cajun Shrimp

These cajun shrimp are inspired by the flavours of southern america and are so easy to make - perfect for serving up as a starter or with rice, veg or fries as a quick delicious dinner!

We pair this with a zesty cajun dipping sauce - but it can be paired with any sauce you like.

We cook these in the air fryer which saves on cooking time & calories but does NOT scrimp on flavour - and even better, its GLUTEN FREE!

Try using this coating for chicken, fish, or even vegetables such as courgette, or even corn!


For the shrimp

12 large raw shrimp / prawns - peeled

1 egg - beaten

1tsp lemon zest

oil spray or

For the Dipping Sauce

4tbsp mayonnaise

1tbsp ketchup

1tsp lemon zest & juice


  1. Mix together the ingredients for the dipping sauce, adding a little milk if you prefer a thinner consistency, adjusting to your taste with salt - set aside.

  2. Add the beaten egg to a bowl or dish, and the Cajun coater & lemon zest to a separate dish, dip the shrimp into the egg, then into the coating mix, repeat if necessary until all shrimp are coated.

  3. Place in the airfryer and cook on 200C for 4-6 minutes, flipping halfway.

  4. Serve with the dipping sauce & enjoy!
