Bring the 150g of butter to room temperature. When soft, combine the butter and parsley and stir well to combine. Set aside.
Heat a heavy frying pan. While the pan is heating, brush the scallops with the melted butter. Place the scallops in the heated pan and fry for 60-90 seconds on each side, or until a lovely golden brown.
Serve two scallops on each plate, and garnish each with a healthy lashing of parsley butter. Serve straightaway.
Warm the plates in a low oven before starting so that the scallops remain hot and the parsley butter melts nicely.
