Servings: 5


  • Air Fryer



  • 1 pound shrimp I used regular size (not jumbo)
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup beer, plus 2 tablespoons
  • 1/2 cup regular, plain breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt for beer mixture
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt for breadcrumb mixture
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder for beer mixture
  • 10 taco-sized tortillas

Avocado Sauce

  • See link above

Mexican Cabbage Slaw

  • See link above


  • First, remove the tails from all of your shrimp.
  • Mix the two types of breadcrumbs with the salt.
  • Mix the flour, salt and garlic powder. Then add your cold beer.
  • Dip each shrimp into the batter and then let it drip for a few seconds before coating in breadcrumbs and then adding it to the air fryer basket. *
  • Coat all the shrimp in oil. I like to use avocado oil. Then turn on your air fryer at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 9 minutes. No need to turn them halfway through.
  • Then assemble! I like to put the avocado sauce on the bottom and the cabbbage slaw on top.


* Make sure to use different hands for the batter and the breadcrumbs, otherwise the breadcrumbs will stick to your fingers like crazy and make the whole process unnecessarily messy.
