  • 4 slices prosciutto



    Prosciutto is a sweet, delicate ham intended to be eaten raw. The word 'prosciutto' is…

  • 750g medium sprouts, trimmed and outer leaves removed
  • 50g butter



    Butter is a dairy product made from separating whole milk or cream into fat and…

  • finely grated zest ¼ lemon



    Oval in shape with a pronouced bulge on one end, lemons are one of the most versatile…


  1. Heat a large frying pan and cook the prosciutto in batches, laying the slices flat in the pan until brown and crispy. Remove from the pan and set aside.

  2. Steam or boil the sprouts for 7-8 mins until just tender, drain and return to the pan with the butter, lemon zest and some seasoning. Turn the sprouts until well coated, then tip into a serving bowl, tear over the crispy prosciutto and season with freshly ground black pepper.

Could this be prepped in advance, perhaps the day before? Then reheated?

Hello Abby, Yes it could. It would be best with the sprouts cooked ahead and the prosciutto cooked at the last minute, but you could also cook all of it ahead. I hope this helps.
