Air Fryer Frozen Bacon-Wrapped Scallops

Air Fryer Frozen Bacon-Wrapped Scallops

Air fryer frozen bacon-wrapped scallops are one of my favorite appetizers. This easy appetizer is perfect for impressing guests without spending hours in the kitchen.

  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 12 bacon-wrapped scallops 1x


  • 12 frozen bacon-wrapped scallops
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


1. Preheat the air fryer: Set your air fryer to 400°F (200°C). Preheating ensures even cooking and crispiness.

2. Prepare the scallops: Take your frozen bacon-wrapped scallops out of the package. If you want to add extra flavor, lightly coat them with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic powder, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper.

3. Arrange in the basket: Place the scallops in the air fryer basket. Make sure they don’t touch each other to allow for proper air circulation and even cooking.

4. Cook: Cook the scallops for 10-15 minutes. Halfway through the cooking time (around 5-7 minutes), flip the scallops using tongs to ensure both sides get crispy and evenly cooked.

5. Check for doneness: After 10-15 minutes, check the scallops’ internal temperature. They should reach 130°F to ensure they are cooked through but still juicy. If you don’t have a meat thermometer, look for the scallops to be opaque and the bacon to be crispy.


Cooking times may vary depending on your air fryer model and the size of the scallops. Always check for doneness a few minutes before the recommended cooking time to avoid overcooking.
