Air Fryer Coconut Shrimp

1 lb large raw shrimp (21/ 25 count), peeled and deveined, tails on
4 tsp Jamaican Jerk Spice Blend
½ tsp kosher salt*
½ cup all-purpose flour**
2 ea large eggs, beaten
¾ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
¼ cup panko breadcrumbs**
cooking spray

*for a slightly spicier version, replace kosher salt with Caribbean Heat Seasoning
**gluten-free versions may be substituted
Arrange shrimp in a single layer between two paper towels and pat dry. Combine spice blend and kosher salt and season both sides of shrimp.

Set up a breading station with three shallow bowls or baking dishes. To the first bowl, add flour. To the second, add beaten eggs, and in the third bowl combine the coconut and panko breadcrumbs.

Bread Shrimp

Dip a shrimp in the flour, shaking off any excess, then dip in the beaten egg. Dredge in the coconut-panko mixture, turning until evenly coated. Transfer breaded shrimp to a large plate or rimmed baking sheet; repeat steps with remaining shrimp until all are breaded.

Air Fry

Preheat air fryer to 375°F. When heated, spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray. Working in batches, arrange the breaded shrimp in the air fryer basket in a single layer, then spray the shrimp with cooking spray. Select the Air Fry setting and cook for 5 minutes; flip shrimp on other side and cook an additional 5 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through, about 10 minutes total.
