Scallops wrapped in bacon

My kids love bacon.  Besides serving it with eggs, asparagus, I have not tried with scallops.  

Bought some really juicy scallops and went on to pair them off with bacon.

I also wanted to see how effective the air fryer will be.  It was messy, oily and my kitchen literally smoked out.  Luckily the cleaning up was not as bad as a BBQ pit. In fact, I just soaked the basket and the pot together and after 15 mins, I was able to scrub off all the charred bits easily.

Next time, I will the air fryer in the wet kitchen.

As for the scallops, I didn't expose the scallop as I was afraid that it will be overcooked by the time the bacon browned.  So I wrapped it fully with bacon and the scallop turned out still juicy and the bacon crisped.

Scallops wrapped in bacon, absolutely delicious!  Really nice finger food.


What you need:





Wrap the bacon over the scallop.  Secure with toothpick.

Air fry it at 180
°C for 18 mins to get a nice golden brown. 


  1. Is the degrees Celsius or Fahrenheit?

  2. I tried going by the Celsius at 180 but I found out by setting the air fryer at 350 for 20 minutes they come out perfect

    1. 350 is about 176 deg celsius. Glad you tried it Ray.


Thanks for dropping by. Thanks.
