Method

  1. Whisk together the honey, oil, vinegar and chilli jelly to make a dressing. Halve, core and thickly slice the pears into a large bowl. Pour the dressing over the pears, cover and leave to marinate for 1hr.
  2. When ready to serve, dived the smoked meat among six individual serving plates. Lift the pears from the marinade and toss into the salad and herbs leaves with a little of the marinade. Pile a little on to each plate. Serve immediately.

Variations

Making this for 2 people I have slightly amended the original recipe, instead of prosciutto, I made it with bought sliced ham that I smoked myself.

I also sliced the pear very thinly as it was a little hard.

Chef's note

Heat the honey in a microwave for 20 seconds to get it nicely runny. Marinade the pears on a large plate to get them properly flavoured.

Serving suggestion

I served this in homemade pitta breads.
