Enjoy these flavourful prawns on their own, or serve atop pasta, with rice, or in tacos alongside your favourite vegetables for a filling and well-balanced meal.


  • 2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil 
  • 1/2 a Lemon, Juiced
  • 3 Tbsp Lemongrass Paste
  • 1 Tsp Garlic, Minced
  • 1 Tsp Herbs, Minced Dill & Parsley
  • 1/2 Tsp Paprika
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • 1/4 Tsp Old Bay Seasoning
  • 450g Prawns, cleaned
  • Avocado Oil Cooking Spray 


  • 1 Bunch Thin Asparagus Spears, Trimmed and Sliced in 2" Pieces 
  • 1/2 Lemon, Sliced into Rounds 


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, lemongrass paste, garlic, herbs, paprika, salt and Old Bay seasoning. Add prawns, lemon rounds and asparagus if using; toss to coat, and marinate for 30 minutes. 
  2. Select SHELLFISH setting and press START. Preheat the Air Fryer for 2 minutes. 
  3. Spray Cooking Basket with avocado oil and arrange shrimp mixture evenly in a single layer. Place back in Air Fryer and begin cooking. 
  4. After 5 minutes, remove Cooking Basket, spray prawns with avocado oil, and continue cooking for the remaining time.

PRO TIP: If you have had a hard time finding fresh prawns, frozen works just as well. Just be sure to fully thaw and pat dry before mixing into your marinade.
