Slice the shallots and add into the pickling liquor and reserve until required.
For the parsley gel, blanch the parsley twice in boiling salted water and refresh each time into iced water. Lightly dry the parsley out and then thermomix it, slowly adding in some of the cooled parsley blanching water into it till you have bright green parsley water. Pass it through a coffee filter and slowly thicken with Ultratex until it coats the back of a spoon, season to taste.
