Recipe

Prosciutto is the Italian word for ham, Parma ham being a type of air-cured ham

Yield : Makes 8–12 servings
Prep Time : 15 mins

Ingredients

  • ½ small honeydew melon
  • 4 nectarines, stoned
  • 8 oz (225g) thinly sliced Parma ham
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Special Equipment:

  • Wooden toothpicks

Directions

1. Cut the melon into 16 wedge-shaped slices. Cut off the rind. Cut each nectarine into wedges.

2. Cut the Parma ham into thin strips. Thread a strip of ham and a piece of fruit on to toothpicks.

3. Arrange on a serving platter and season with a little pepper.

Variation:

Melon, Fig, and Prosciutto Salad: Arrange arugala leaves on 4 plates. Cut the melon into 16 wedge-shaped slices, as above, and divide between the serving plates. Cut 4 figs in quarters but not through the base. Open out the figs and place one in the center of each plate. Cut 8 prosciutto slices in half lengthways and arrange between the melon slices. Sprinkle with pepper and drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Using a potato peeler, shave 3½ oz (100g) Pecorino cheese over the top.

Notes

Prepare ahead: These canapes can be made several hours in advance. Chill until required.
