✨ Recipe Ingredients

  • 3/4 teaspoon Pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Tandoori Chicken Masala or Garam Masala
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Oregano (optional)

👨‍🍳 How To Make

Follow this easy recipe:

Step 1

Pat the shrimp dry using paper towels.

Step 2

In a bowl, mix all the ingredients except the shrimp. The marinade should have a thick consistency at this point.

Step 3

Coat the shrimp evenly with the marinade and let them marinate for at least 1 hour.

Step 4

Air Frying

Preheat the air fryer to 370°F (188°C). Brush the air fryer basket with oil to prevent sticking. Place the marinated shrimp in the basket in a single layer. Air fry the shrimp for 5-6 minutes or until they are cooked through and slightly crispy.

Skillet

Melt beef tallow or butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Once the fat is hot, place the marinated shrimp in the skillet. Cook the shrimp for about 1 minute on each side or until they turn pink and are cooked through.

💡Tips

1. Marinating Time

For the best results, allow the shrimp to marinate for at least an hour, or even overnight if possible. This will give the flavors time to penetrate the shrimp, resulting in a more flavorful and tender shrimp.

If you’re short on time, try to marinate for at least 30 minutes, but keep in mind that longer marinating times will yield better results.

2. Patting Shrimp Dry

Before coating the shrimp in the marinade, be sure to pat them dry with paper towels. This step is important because it removes excess moisture from the surface of the shrimp, which can dilute the marinade and prevent it from adhering properly.
