Broad beans and peas with mozzarella and Parma ham
Sunday 09 May 2010
The key to getting the best flavours out of all the lovely spring produce that is currently available is to keep it very simple and to dress just before eating.
180g/6oz podded broad beans
200g/7oz podded peas
1 tbsp olive oil, plus a little more for drizzling
The zest of a lemon and juice of half a lemon
3 fresh balls of mozzarella
1 bunch of mint
12 slices of San Daniele or Parma ham
Cook the beans and peas then dress with the oil, lemon zest and juice and season with salt and pepper.
Tear each mozzarella ball in half and divide between six plates.
Arrange two slices of Parma ham on top of each and scatter over the peas and beans.
Season with a little more salt and drizzle over a little more oil. Serve straight away.
