  • Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle scallops with pepper and salt; cook until golden brown on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Flip scallops and add the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and garlic. Continue cooking, spooning the liquid over the scallops, until browned on the bottom and just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes more. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice and parsley. Serve with lemon wedges.
