I know I am getting carry away with Air Fryer recipes but I am using mine so much.
The is lightly breaded sea scallops in the air fryer with the same results as deep frying, but without the smell or mess.
1/2 cup finely crushes Ritz crackers
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp Old Bay seasoning
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 pound sea scallops, patted dry
Preheat the air fryer to 390 degree
Mix Cracker crumbs, garlic powder and seafood seasoning together Place melted butter in a second bowl
Dip each scallop in the melted butter then roll in the breading until completely coated. Repeat with next scallop
Lightly spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray Arrange scallops in the basket so that they are not touching.
Cook in the preheated air fryer for 2 mins. Turn scallops over gently with a small spatula and cook 2 more mins.
