Gently spiced parsnip purée, tender scallops and a sweet pomegranate dressing meld flavours of land and sea with aplomb in this scallop with parsnip recipe from Marcus Wareing.
Dr Jenna Macchiochi's nutrition notes:
"Scallops are packed with protein yet low in calories (consumption of fish and shellfish has been shown to aid in weight loss better than other protein sources). Parsnips are a delicious wintery veg with less calories and more fibre than potatoes, and are a great source of vitamin C, vitamin K, and folate. Pomegranate contains many phytochemicals with antioxidant action, such asellagic acid."
