To prepare, rinse the scallops thoroughly then pat dry with paper towels.
Melt the butter over low heat in your favourite skillet. Add the scallops, season them with salt and pepper and allow to sear for about 1 minute. Flip them over to the other side and allow to cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Now, prepare the sauce. Melt the butter in the skillet over low heat. Add the minced garlic and whisk together. Don’t let the garlic burn or it will take on a bitter taste.
From here, raise the heat to medium, add the lemon juice and bring the sauce to a simmer.
Add the chopped parsley and season with salt and pepper.
Now, serve the scallops in a bowl and place it on your plate. Spoon some of the hot sauce over the scallops and serve immediately.
Serving Suggestions: Serve with lemon pieces and a simple baked potato.
