Step 1

Thaw the shrimp according to package directions. I used the quick thaw method, which is just rinsing the frozen shrimp under cold water.

Step 2

Brush the air fryer basket lightly with the vegetable oil. Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F.

Step 3

Stir together the brown sugar, chipotle chili powder, smoked paprika. garlic powder and salt.

Step 4

Dry the shrimp with paper towels. Place the shrimp in a zippered plastic bag. Pour in the seasoning mixture and shake to fully coat the shrimp.

Step 5

Place the shrimp in a single layer in the air fryer basket. You may need to fry them in two batches. Cook for 3 - 4 minutes. Turn the shrimp over and cook for an additional 3 - 4 minutes.

Step 6

The shrimp will shrink in size quite a bit and they will be firm to the touch when cooked.

Step 7

Mix together the green salsa and sour cream for your sauce. Serve the air fried shrimp with the rest of the ingredients and assemble as tacos. Tortilla, sliced avocado, purple cabbage, shrimp, sauce, red onion and a squeeze of lime.
