Air Fryer Bacon-Wrapped Scallops with Sriracha Mayo


This delicious appetizer is prepared quickly and easily in the air fryer and served with a spicy Sriracha mayo dipping sauce. I use the smaller bay scallops for this. If you are using jumbo scallops it will require a longer cooking time and longer strips of bacon.

36 scallops


  • ½ cup mayonnaise

  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha sauce

  • 1 pound bay scallops (about 36 small scallops)

  • 1 pinch coarse salt

  • 1 pinch freshly cracked black pepper

  • 12 slices bacon, cut into thirds

  • 1 serving olive oil cooking spray


  1. Mix mayonnaise and Sriracha sauce together in a small bowl. Refrigerate Sriracha mayo until ready to serve.

  2. Preheat the air fryer to 390 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  3. Spread scallops out onto a plate or cutting board and blot dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper. Wrap each scallop with 1/3 slice of bacon and secure with a toothpick.

  4. Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray. Place bacon-wrapped scallops in the basket in a single layer; split into 2 batches if necessary.

  5. Cook in the air fryer for 7 minutes. Check for doneness; scallops should be opaque and bacon should be crispy. Cook 1 to 2 minutes longer, if necessary, checking every minute. Remove scallops carefully with tongs and place on a paper towel-lined plate to absorb excess oil from the bacon. Serve with Sriracha mayo.
