1. Sprinkle salt and pepper over scallops. In a 12-inch skillet, heat olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Place scallops, seasoned side down, in pan and cook for about 4 to 6 minutes, flipping halfway through, until scallops are lightly browned and firm. Remove scallops from pan and let cool.
2. In heated pan, combine lemon juice and remaining 4 tablespoons butter. Once butter is melted, add lemon zest, garlic powder, red pepper flakes and a small pinch of salt.
3. Transfer scallops back to pan and lightly coat with spiced lemon butter. Taste and add more red pepper flakes if desired. Serve with a drizzle of butter sauce and a sprinkle of parsley.
