Savory Bacon Wrapped Scallops
Crisp, smoky bacon is wrapped around tender scallops in this easy yet elegant air fried appetizer! This quick and satisfying recipe pairs the smoky flavor of bacon with sweet and succulent scallops for the ultimate surf and turf appetizer that will please any crowd! Best of all, you don’t need to turn the oven on because this recipe cooks in the air fryer in just 10 minutes.
How To Air Fry!
When it comes to air frying, temperature and time are crucial. A high enough temperature is necessary to crisp the bacon, but you don’t want to overlook the scallops which can ruin their tender texture. We find that 375F for 10 minutes does the trick, but you may need a couple extra minutes depending on your air fryer.
Best Way To Cook Scallops And Bacon!
It’s also important to rotate the scallops halfway through cooking for crisp bacon all around each scallop. We also recommend using a traditional or thin cut bacon over thick cut. This allows the bacon to crisp up quicker, so the scallops aren’t overcooked.
Learn About Our Scallops!
Here at Sizzlefish, our scallops are tender and rich with a mild flavor. They’re caught off the coast of Maryland in the mid-Atlantic Ocean before being dry packed without any preservative solution. This ensures the purest scallops and freshest flavor. Our wild scallops are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and are a great source of brain-boosting B-12. Sizzlefish scallops arrive frozen in packages of 4 for easy portioning.
All About The Sauce!
Although these bacon wrappers scallops pack plenty of flavor on their own, we paired them with a simple honey mustard sauce for dipping. Tangy Dijon compliments the richness of the bacon and goes great with scallops. A touch of honey adds balance.
