I pulled this from the web years ago and have "perfected" it over the years.

INGREDIENTS

Scallops (1 pound)

Unsalted butter (1 Tbsp)

Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

For the Lemon Butter Sauce

Unsalted butter (2 Tbsp)

Lemon Juice (1 lemon)

2 cloves garlic, minced

fresh parsley leaves (2 Tbsp, chopped)

DIRECTIONS:

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium high heat.

Sometimes you'll see a small side muscle on the scallops, remove it; rinse using cold water; and pat dry. 

Season scallops with salt and pepper, to taste.

I like to work in batches: add scallops to skillet (single layer) and cook, flipping once, until golden brown and translucent in the center (about 1-2 minutes per side). 

Set aside, keep warm.

For the Lemon Butter Sauce

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in the skillet.

Add garlic and cook, stirring frequently until you can smell it (about 1 minute).

Stir in lemon juice.

Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

**Serve scallops immediately with lemon butter sauce (I like to garnish with parsley). Sometimes I like to add a little oily pasta to make it more filling.
