A visit with Sous Chef Zack Bentz at Catch 22 opened my eyes to the delicious taste of parsnips.  Zack, who has been a working with Chef Bob Bickmore for 3 years taught us how to make Pan Seared Jumbo Sea Scallop served over a Truffled Parsnip Puree with Exotic Mushrooms and took us on a step by step journey.  This recipe serves 4.


• 2 cups of milk
• 2 parsnips (washed and peeled)
• 1 sprig of fresh thyme (optional)
• 2 tblsp of white truffle oil
• 2 oz butter
• salt and pepper to taste
• 4 sea scallops
• 20 shiitake mushrooms
• 20 oyster mushrooms
• 1 clove finely chopped garlic
• 1 bunch of enoki mushrooms
• sweet pea tendrils ( micro greens)
For the parsnip puree:
• combine milk, parsnips, thyme and salt and pepper in a pot and bring to a boil
• turn down heat and simmer until parsnips have cooked
• puree parsnips until smooth and finish with truffle oil and butter
• season to taste with salt and pepper

Set aside
Saute seasoned scallops in a pan on medium heat with just enough olive oil to coat the pan and prevent the scallops from sticking
saute for approx. 2 minutes per side
In another pan saute the shiitake and oyster mushrooms in butter with garlic and season with salt and pepper.  Regular mushrooms will do in a pinch.
• Place parsnip puree on centre of the plate
• place sauteed mushrooms around the puree
• Place seared scallop on top of parsnip puree
• garnish with sweet pea tendrils, enoki mushrooms and drizzle with more white truffle oil
