  • 3 medium sweet potatoes
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chipotle chili pepper
  • 12 uncooked peeled jumbo shrimp
  • 6 pieces of bacon


  • Mix brown sugar, cumin, and chili pepper in a small bowl
  • Poke several holes in the sweet potatoes,
  • Microwave for 12-15 minutes or until squeezably soft
  • Slice the sweet potatoes into ⅛ inch wedges
  • Place a piece of foil in the wire rack of the air fryer, and spray with cooking oil
  • Place the sweet potato slices on the tray and cover with the brown sugar mixture
  • Wrap each raw shrimp with ⅓ slice of bacon
  • Place each wrapped shrimp on a sweet potato round
  • Place a dab of barbeque sauce on top of each shrimp
  • Air fry for 10-12 minutes until potatoes are soft and bacon is crispy


-Cook time of the potatoes varies with the size of the potatoes-  Be sure the potatoes are soft and not boney

-If you use frozen shrimp, be sure they are thoroughly defrosted and dry before use

-Rather than an air fryer, you can roast your Shrimply Baddass appetizers at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes
