Freshly minced parsley and lemon wedges for serving
Preheat your oven to broil and place your oven rack in the middle.
Stir the melted butter, lemon juice, garlic powder, salt and pepper together in a medium bowl.
Place a sheet of parchment paper on a medium sheet pan then arrange the scallops on the sheet pan and drizzle half of the sauce on top.
Broil for 6 minutes then remove the pan from the oven and drizzle the remaining sauce on top.
Broil for another 1 to 4 minutes or until the tops are golden brown and the scallops are cooked through.
Serve with freshly minced parsley and lemon wedges, if desired.
Storing: Broiled scallops are best served immediately. If you happen to have any leftovers store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. This recipe is not freezer-friendly and scallops do not freeze well therefore freezing is not recommended.Reheating: To reheat leftover scallops, place them on a baking sheet and broil for about 30-60 seconds or until warmed through. You can also reheat them in the microwave, but they may become slightly tough.
