> 1 (16 oz) pkg Nature's Promise® Sea Scallops, thawed
> Metal  or soaked wooden skewers
> 2 tbsp olive oil, divided
> 1 lemon
> 1 clove garlic
> 4 tbsp butter
> 1 tbsp finely chopped parsley


Set grill or grill pan to medium-high. With paper towels, blot the scallops until very dry. Thread onto skewers. Brush all over with 1 tbsp oil. Season with salt and pepper.
Halve the lemon and brush cut sides with remaining 1 tbsp oil. Place scallops onto grill and cook 2 min. per side, until cooked through.
Place lemon halves on grill, cut-sides down, and grill 2–3 min., until grill marks form. Transfer lemon halves and scallops to a platter.
Into a medium microwave-safe bowl, with a garlic press, crush the garlic clove. Add the butter. Cover with vented plastic and microwave 1 min., until butter melts. Stir in the parsley and season with pepper to taste. Squeeze juice from grilled lemon into butter and stir to combine.
To serve, drizzle butter over scallops.


To prevent scallops from spinning around on skewers, thread scallops onto 2 parallel skewers.
