Ingredients
    2 tablespoons  olive oil
    1 1/4 pounds (600 grams)  scallops
    2 tablespoons  unsalted butter, divided
    4-5 large  garlic cloves, minced (or 1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic)
      Salt
      fresh ground black pepper to taste
    1/4 cup  dry white wine or broth, (optional)
    1 cup  heavy cream,, (light, full fat or thickened cream. For a lower fat option, use evaporated milk)
    1 tablespoon  lemon juice
    1/4 cup  chopped parsley

Instructions

If scallops are frozen, thaw in cold water. Remove the side muscle from the scallops if attached. Thoroughly pat dry with paper towels.
Heat olive oil in a large pan or skillet over medium-high heat until hot and sizzling. Add the scallops in a single layer without over crowding the pan (work in batches if needed).
Season with salt and pepper to taste and fry for 2-3 minutes on one side (until a golden crust forms underneath), then flip and fry again for 2 minutes until crisp, lightly browned and cooked through (opaque). Remove from skillet and transfer to a plate.
Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in the same pan, scraping up any browned bits left over from the scallops. Add in the garlic and cook until fragrant (1 minute).
Pour in wine (or broth) and bring to a simmer for 2 minutes or until wine reduces by about half. Add cream and allow to simmer until slightly thickened.
Remove pan (skillet) from the heat; stir in lemon juice and add the scallops back into the pan to warm through slightly and garnish with parsley.
Serve over rice, pasta, garlic bread or steamed vegetables (cauliflower, broccoli, zucchini noodles).
