  • 1

    Put the rice on to cook in plenty of boiling water, adding the lemon zest and one teaspoon of stock powder to flavour it. Cook until tender – about 12 minutes.

    Meanwhile, place a sage leaf on top of each scallop and wrap half a slice of Parma ham around each one.

  • 3

    Heat the butter in a frying pan and add the Parma ham-wrapped scallops, cooking them for about two minutes before turning them over to cook the other side.

  • 4

    Add the Marsala, four tablespoons of hot water and the pinch of stock powder. Simmer for two or three minutes to reduce the liquid a little. Season to taste.

  • 5

    Drain the cooked rice and stir through the chopped herbs. Serve with the scallops, along with the cooking juices.
