Philips Airfryer Hot Prawns

Our schedules seem to get busier every day and sometimes, our eating habits pay the price!  We’re always looking for faster and healthier ways to eat (but never sacrifice taste) and we’ve collaborated with Philips to test out their new Philips Airfryer.

The Philips Airfryer is not your typical fryer.  This unique kitchen appliance lets you fry with air using Rapid Air Technology by circulating hot air around the food.  We were asked to try out one of the recipes created by Gordon Ramsay as well as one of our own.

This Hot Prawns recipe is from their recipe booklet; if you don’t have king prawns, any size prawn will fit the recipe, or shrimp, just remember to adjust the cooking time accordingly.

    My shrimp did not cook in 10 minutes at 180. Maybe it’s because I cooked bacon first, and then tossed the shrimp in the bacon fat?
