First, I have to know what an air fryer is, and then I can comment on the potential improvements. Im always game for new ideas on cooking shrimp with bacon.Earlier today I was researching how those newfangled air fryers worked because Costco had one on sale that caught my interest. At the end of my research I realized that if I could cook something in my full sized convection oven on a rack the results would be pretty much the same as an air fryer. I found a cookie sheet with a rack that fits it to place food on for cooking for $20. Now I have an air fryer equivalent.
I think Andy's recipe above with the shrimp and bacon would probably be enhanced if prepared in an air fryer or convection oven on a rack.
