Preheat your oven to 375°F. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add the minced garlic and ground black pepper to the melted butter, stirring until fragrant. Add the chopped parsley and stir until combined.
Place the shelled talaba onto a baking tray and pour the butter mixture over them. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top of the talaba.
Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the finished dish and serve.
