Air-Fryer Bacon-Wrapped Scallops Tips
Can you use frozen scallops to make air-fryer bacon-wrapped scallops?
You can use frozen, but while frozen aren't as expensive as fresh, they also won’t be as tasty. When shopping, look for dry or natural scallops
, or those that are unprocessed and have nothing added to them after harvest. We recommend using sea scallops for this recipe (rather than bay) so you get a nice-sized bite.
Do you need to flip the air-fryer bacon-wrapped scallops halfway through the cooking time?
You shouldn’t need to flip these bacon-wrapped scallops, but every air fryer is different. If you notice the bottoms seem to be browning more quickly than the tops, feel free to flip! Keep these air-fryer cooking tips
in mind, too.
How can you tell when scallops are cooked?
Your scallops are done when they become firm and opaque. When in doubt, it's best to undercook them—you can always toss them in for another minute. Here's how to grill scallops
to perfection. —Maggie Knoebel, Taste of Home Associate Recipe Editor/Tester
