  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ Tablespoon chili powder
  • 12 oz raw large or jumbo shrimp shell remove, deveined, with tails on
  • 6 slices bacon cut into thirds


  • Add brown sugar and chili powder in a small bowl and mix until combined. Pat the shrimp dry.
  • Place the shrimp into the brown sugar and mix, coating both sides of the shrimp.
  • Wrap each shrimp with a piece of bacon and secure the bacon to the shrimp with a toothpick.
  • Place the shrimp wrapped in bacon into the bottom of an air fryer basket in a single layer. Do not overlap them. Cook in batches if necessary.
  • Air fry at 360 degrees Fahrenheit for 12-15 minutes.
  • Remove and serve alone or with a dipping sauce.


  • I do not preheat the air fryer for this recipe. If you preheat, decrease the cooking time by a couple of minutes.
  • If using frozen shrimp, defrost the shrimp before proceeding with the recipe.
  • Feel free to change up the shrimp seasoning and use sauces like bbq sauce instead.
