In a large saucepan, add butter and heat over medium high heat.  Add shrimp and lobster tail and cook until golden brown on one side then turn, about 3 minutes.  Turn the shrimp and lobster tail then add the garlic and lemon juice and cook until the garlic is fragrant but shrimp are still translucent, 1-2 minutes.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Meanwhile, grill the tenderloin to desired temperature.  To compose the plate, place the prepared starch and vegetable in the center of the plate with the tenderloin atop.  Place the lobster tail to the side and cascade the shrimp from the tenderloin to the scallop.  Spoon some of the pan juices over the prawns and lobster tail then garnish with parsley and enjoy.
