Spicy BBQ Shrimp with Mango Avocado Rice Salad

Spicy BBQ Shrimp with Mango Avocado Rice Salad


  • 1-pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined (tails on or off, your preference)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons Spicy Style BBQ Rubs
  • 1 large red bell pepper (large diced)
  • 1 large yellow pepper(large diced)
  • Fresh lime juice
  • Metal or bamboo skewers soaked in water for at least 30 minutes (optional, but helps prevent burning)


  1. Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels. In a large bowl, mix Spicy Style BBQ Rub with olive oil add Shrimp coat evenly. Let marinate for at least 7 to 10 minutes.
  2. Thread the shrimp onto the skewers, with a pepper dice leaving a little space between each one for even cooking.
  3. Arrange the skewers in a single layer in the air fryer basket, making sure they are not touching. You may need to cook them in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
  4. Air fry at 400 F for 8 -10 minutes, or until the shrimp are pink and opaque throughout.
  5. Flip the skewers halfway through cooking for even browning (optional, but recommended for thicker shrimp).
  6. Once cooked, remove the skewers from the air fryer and let them cool slightly before serving.

Serve over a bed of the Mango Avocado Rice Salad with a fresh squeeze of lime.



  • For a sweeter and smokier flavor, add 1 tablespoon of brown sugar to the marinade.
  • Serve with your favorite dipping sauce, such as sriracha mayo, lime wedges, or a cool and creamy cilantro lime sauce.
  • You can also add other vegetables to the skewers, such as bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, or pineapple chunks. Just make sure to pre-cook any vegetables that take longer to cook than shrimp, such as bell peppers.

Enjoy your delicious and spicy air fryer shrimp skewers!
