Air Fryer Bang Bang Shrimp

Sharing is caring!

This is my take on a popular dish from a restaurant chain. My version is made in an air fryer instead of being deep-fried. The end result was perfectly crispy sweet and spicy shrimp.


  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup sweet chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha sauce
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 pound raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 head loose leaf lettuce
  • 2 green onions, chopped, or to taste (Optional)


Set an air fryer for 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Mix mayonnaise, chili sauce, and sriracha sauce in a bowl until smooth. Reserve some bang bang sauce in a separate bowl for dipping, if desired.

Place flour on a plate. Place panko on a separate plate.

Coat shrimp first with flour, followed by mayonnaise mixture, then panko. Place coated shrimp on a baking sheet.

Place shrimp in the air fryer basket without overcrowding.

Cook for 12 minutes. Repeat with remaining shrimp.

Serve in lettuce wraps garnished with green onions.
