1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons lime juice

In a small bowl, combine coleslaw mix, cilantro, lime juice, honey, salt and if desired, jalapeno; toss to coat. Set aside.
Preheat air fryer to 375°. In a shallow bowl, whisk eggs and milk. Place flour in a separate shallow bowl. In a third shallow bowl, mix panko, garlic powder and ground cumin. Dip shrimp in flour to coat both sides; shake off excess. Dip in egg mixture, then in panko mixture, patting to help coating adhere.
In batches, arrange shrimp in a single layer in greased air-fryer basket; spritz with cooking spray. Cook until golden brown, 2-3 minutes. Turn; spritz with cooking spray. Cook until golden brown and shrimp turn pink, 2-3 minutes longer.
