Seafood is on the top of my list when it comes to protein. Whether if it’s shrimp, salmon, or scallops. I love the clean feeling after eating seafood because it’s not too heavy. I’ve only had scallops pan-seared on a stovetop, so this recipe by Air Fryer Recipes with Booger500us is not what I thought would come out to. It is very similar to pan-searing them but in an air fryer. This is a simple recipe with a classic garlic lemon butter sauce. Make sure you don’t overcook these because they get real chewy. Scallops can be tricky to cook, but you can cook just about anything in an air fryer.
First, heat up your air fryer, and add butter and olive oil to the pot. Season with salt and pepper, then flip them after 3 minutes. Make sure to check on them, because they cook easily. It should take about 6 minutes.
Next, once the scallops are cooked, remove them from the fryer. You’ll want to start making your sauce that is going to go pour over the scallops when finished.
I have an air fryer that I use religiously, so this is also a great way to cook scallops.
