  • 1/2 cup (about 2 1/8 oz.) keto-friendly almond flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons crushed black pepper
  • 2 large free-range eggs

Shrimp Cooking Instructions


Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).


Spread half of the almond flour onto a plate, and crack the eggs into a separate bowl. Whisk the eggs. On a second plate, to the right of the eggs, mix together the remaining flour, salt and shredded parmesan.


Coat both sides of the shrimp with the almond flour, then dip into the eggs. Lightly shake the excess egg off of the shrimp and roll them into the almond flour and parmesan mixture.


Place the shrimp into the air fryer basket, and make sure the shrimp are not touching. Spray them with the cooking oil spray.


Cook the shrimp for 8 minutes, tossing halfway through the cooking time.


Dump the shrimp from the basket into your preferred serving dish and plate with the sauce you will prepare in the next steps.

Keto Cocktail Sauce Instructions


Combine all of the sauce ingredients into a small bowl, and stir until mixed well.


Transfer to a small/decorative dipping dish, or just serve from the bowl for minimal effort and less dishes to wash.
