How to Make the Pineapple Recipe
First, you need to make the salsa! Do this by taking out a large enough bowl and start combining the tropical taste-bud surprise — avocado, red onion, bell pepper, cilantro, lime juice, and the hot sauce.
You can start this part by dividing the shrimp among the taco shells. Spoon as much salsa as you want over the shrimp and sprinkle some air-fried cashews! It’s ready to serve immediately! And you can add some hot sauce if you’re feeling extra spicy!
Making the Air-Fryer Spiced Cashews
Making the cashews for the pineapple recipe is not hard at all! Preheat your air fryer and mix olive oil, brown sugar, lime zest and juice, garlic salt, chili powder, cumin, and cayenne (if you don’t mind the spiciness). Add the cashews in and coat them nicely.
Fry them until golden and let them cool for about 12 minutes on a baking sheet. You can store them for up to a week in an airtight container at room temperature! If you’re feeling the mid-winter blues, this tropical pineapple recipe will get your mind and taste buds back to those hot summer days. Give it a try, and enjoy!
