Frozen Scampi In Air Fryer

Sharing is caring!



  • Frozen breaded scampi
  • Olive oil spray (optional)


  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).** It’s always a good idea to preheat your air fryer to ensure even cooking.

  2. Prepare the scampi: Gently shake any loose breading off the frozen scampi. You can spray the scampi lightly with olive oil for extra crispness, but it’s not necessary.

  3. Air fry the scampi: Arrange the scampi in a single layer in the air fryer basket, leaving some space between each piece for air circulation. Depending on the size and quantity of your scampi, you might need to cook them in batches.

  4. Cook for 10 minutes: Set the timer for 10 minutes and let the air fryer work its magic.

  5. Shake and check for crispiness: After 5 minutes, pause the cooking and carefully shake the basket to ensure even browning. Check on the scampi at the 10-minute mark. They should be golden brown and crispy.

  6. Cook for a few more minutes (optional): If the scampi aren’t quite crispy enough, continue cooking for an additional 2-3 minutes.

  7. Serve immediately: Enjoy your crispy air-fried scampi on their own or with your favorite dipping sauce and sides.


  • Frozen scampi are already pre-cooked, so the air fryer is simply crisping them up. Don’t overcrowd the basket, or they will steam instead of crisp.
  • You can add a light coating of your favorite spices like paprika or garlic powder to the scampi before air frying for an extra flavor boost.
