Lemon Pepper Scallops

This recipe is Whole30, Paleo, Gluten, and Dairy Free.

These air fried Lemon Pepper Scallops are to die for! Sweet, succulent, buttery scallops coated in Lemon Pepper nut crumbs....are you drooling yet? David was upset there wasn't more! I served them over Cauliflower rice mixed with spinach, a little garlic and ghee and it was the perfect dinner! Next time I will be doubling this recipe as we ate the whole pound of scallops ourselves. Sorry not sorry!


1 lb scallops, I like Rastelli's
1/4 cup arrowroot powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder

2 tbsp ghee

1/2 - 3/4 cup Lemon Pepper Nut Crumbs

1 lemon, cut in wedges for garnish

1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped for garnish

Spray avocado oil
