Air fry the shrimp in a single layer in the air fryer basket for 5–6 minutes until the bacon is crisp and the shrimp is cooked through.

Step 6

Bake the bacon-wrapped shrimp on a parchment-lined baking sheet at 400 degrees F for 15 minutes until the bacon is crisp and the shrimp is cooked through.

Step 7

Method: Grill at medium-high heat (400 degrees). Grill bacon-wrapped shrimp for 3 minutes per side until crisp and cooked through.
