Ever since we got our air fryer, we are pretty obsessed with coming up with recipes to use in it. We are fascinated by how fast it perfectly fries our food and how healthy it makes our tasty concoctions. Rather than drenching the food in oil, our air fryer basically fries (probably) anything using hot air. I really am not perfectly sure how it does it, but let me tell you, it is the greatest cooking gadget we own! After we place the food in the frying basket and press a few buttons, we walk away and let the fryer do the all the amazing work. Even though we have not tried it yet, we know that our air fryer can cook anything from hamburgers to a cake. We love the versatility and how we can use it to cook so many different things. Something we knew that we wanted to make first was coconut shrimp. When brainstorming ideas, we came up with this fantastic spicy mango coconut shrimp bowl.
When we started to make the coconut shrimp, we were blown away by how simple it really was. Coconut shrimp seems like something that could take an afternoon to make. Instead, it took less that twenty minutes! While the air fryer made this dish incredibly easy, it can also be made using an oven, and the cook time is just as short! Never before did we think we could have perfect, coconut shrimp so quickly, and we were happily amazed.
Not only did the tasty shrimp astonish us, but we were also pretty shocked by the incredible and spicy mango sauce. It was perfectly sweet and perfectly spicy all at once and it perfectly accompanied the crispy shrimp. This sauce was so good that we wanted to put it on everything! Since we made the shrimp, we have even put the sauce on some enchiladas that will be gracing the blog very soon.
Although this spicy mango coconut shrimp bowl seems complicated, it is so simple and so fast and would be a perfect, tasty weeknight meal. After a few minutes of prep in the kitchen, this beautiful dish can be the greatest thing to eat after a long day at work. Whether or not you own an air fryer, this meal is something you have to try! We hope you make it soon and become just as blown away by the flavors as we were.
