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 tsp garlic powder
