  • Prepare your dredging station by laying out three shallow bowls next to one another and between you and the air fryer basket. In the bowl closest to you place the coconut flour. In the next bowl place the whisked egg. Then in the last bowl, place the shredded coconut. If you are adding optional seasoning, simply use a whisk or fork to blend it into the coconut flour.

Recipe Notes

This is really a simple recipe that works as an appetizer or as part of a meal.
I could easily enjoy these air fried scallops on top of a salad.
I mentioned how to prepare your scallops for this recipe.
Excess water on scallops can result in dry or low in moisture results. After you rinse the scallops in cold water, lay them down on a clean kitchen towel or paper towel and pat them dry.
