If using sea scallops, cut in halves or quarters. Melt ¼ cup of butter in a small skillet and add mushrooms. Cook, stirring often until mushrooms are wilted and lose their liquid. Add onions and garlic and sauté lightly. Remove from heat, then add the remaining butter, scallops, bread crumbs, parsley and pepper. Blend well.
Place mixture in 6 individual shells or baking dishes. Cook in a 400° F oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until scallops are tender and the mixture is browned.
