Air Fryer Scallops Directions
Prepare the scallops
Rinse scallops, pat dry with paper towel. Season with salt and pepper.

Get saucy and make a creamy garlic lemon sauce
In a small saucepan or skillet, melt butter over low to medium heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant. Whisk in heavy cream and stir until thickened. Whisk in wine, lemon juice and a pinch of salt. Pour sauce over cooked scallops and serve with lemon wedges and a sprinkling of parmesan cheese if desired.
Delicious! The sauce was a hit with my husband too (he’s always leery if he knows I’m making anything Keto). I’ve watched enough of your great videos to know that prepping the ingredients is the key to a flawless cooking experience. Not sure I could have pulled it off if I hadn’t since the scallops cook quick. Thanks for the great addition to my Keto arsenal!
Absolutely delicious cooked without any changes. Definitely brought out the flavor of the scallops!
