Scallops in the Air Fryer

Scallops in the Air Fryer

Scallops can be a tricky dish to make, rubbery when undercooked and tough and dry when they are overcooked. Thanks to the airfryer, though, it is now easier than ever to make this dish and impress your dinner guests. Adding a bit of lemon adds a fresh, zesty flavor that wakes up the taste buds.
