Creamy Garlic Scallops

2 TBSP olive oil
1 1/4 lbs. scallops
2 TBSP unsalted butter, divided
5 garlic cloves, minced
Salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 cup heavy cream
1 TBSP lemon juice
1/4 cup parsley, chopped

Remove the side muscle from the scallops if attached. Thoroughly pat dry scallops 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 to 3 minutes on one side (until a golden crust forms underneath)
Flip scallops and and fry again for 2 minutes until crisp, lightly browned and cooked through (opaque).
Remove from skillet and transfer to a plate.
Melt 2 TBSP of butter in the same pan, scraping up any browned bits left over from the scallops.
Add garlic and cook until fragrant; about 1 minute.
Pour in wine 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 and stir in lemon juice.
Add the scallops back into the pan to warm through slightly and garnish with parsley.
Serve over rice, pasta, garlic bread or steamed vegetables.
