Capsicums are rich in cancer-fighting anti-oxidants and a good amount of parsley adds more beta carotene and vitamin C to the mix.

Made it over summer - it is light and fresh, plus it is easy for someone who doesn't cook much. Loved mild kick from the chili flakes. Just remember to not leave the scallops on for too long! Tasted better the next day too. - 24 Jan 2009
