Friday Night Shrimp and Champagne Fun

Start your weekend off right with this incredible Friday night recipe.

What You'll Need

For Shrimp

  1. Medium or Large Air Fryer with Basket

  2. 2 Lbs. Shrimp (uncooked, with shells on)

  3. 3 Tbsp. Lemon Pepper Seasoning

  4. 1 C. Water

  5. Ice

  6. 1 Lemon (cut into wedges, for serving)

  7. St. Elmo's Cocktail Sauce (for serving)

For Champagne

  1. To celebrate a good week, we recommend Mumm Napa brut champagne or rosé. Affordable, refreshing, and delicious.

  2. To celebrate a great week, we recommend splurging on our favorite—Veuve Clicquot brut rosé. Pricey, but worth it for celebrating big wins.


  1. Preheat air fryer to 350 degrees for approximately 5-10 minutes.

  2. Remove thawed fresh shrimp from store packaging and rinse with water. Drain excess water on paper towel while preparing other items.

  3. Sprinkle lemon pepper seasoning over shrimp evenly, then toss shrimp to distribute seasoning.

  4. Remove air fryer basket, and add water into the bottom.

  5. Place seasoned shrimp in basket, and add basket to air fryer.

  6. Important: It's easy to overcook shrimp! Cook shrimp for three minutes, then check to see if shells are turning a bright pink color. Shake the shrimp in the basket. You will likely cook about five minutes total.

  7. Chill shrimp in a platter on ice before eating along with lemon slices and cocktail sauce.
