With Garlic Butter Sauce!
Pat the scallops dry with a paper towel, and remove any side muscle by pinching and tearing IT away.
Season the scallops, and saute in butter over high head for about 2 minutes per side. Do NOT overcook!
Set the scallops aside, then melt the remaining butter in the pan. Add garlic, wine, and lemon juice and adjust seasonings to taste.
Return scallops to the pan, spoon the sauce over them, and garnish with parsley and lemon slices.
Serve immediately. Scallops pair great with creamy pasta recipes, over polenta, or with some simple side veggies.
