Broccoli and Crispy Prosciutto with a Creamy Dressing

Nuvita Biscuits

This tasty recipe only takes ten minutes kitchen time and can hold its own as a light dinner or a satisfying starter.


For the dressing

  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp sherry vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp clear honey
  • 1 tbsp creme fraiche
  • 2 shallots, very finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp capers, roughly chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the broccoli

  • 400 g Tenderstem broccoli
  • 12 slices prosciutto


Preheat the grill to hot. Make the dressing by whisking all the ingredients together in a small bowl.

2. Plunge the broccoli into boiling water and blanch for 4-5 minutes until it is tender but with a little ‘bite’. Drain well and divide between individual heatproof dishes, or arrange in a large baking dish.

3. Lay the slices of prosciutto over the broccoli, ribboning and folding it a little so it looks pretty and a little rustic. Slide under the hot grill and cook for 2-3 minutes until the prosciutto starts to turn crispy.

4. Drizzle over the dressing and eat immediately, served with warm bread to soak up the juices.

    My wife and I are doing a friendly ‘ come dine with me ‘ with a group of friends. its our turn next month and we wanted to do a spanish evening with various tapas starters. we would like to know what tapas would be best to prepare in the morning to heat up later, most of the recipes we have looked at require doing a few minutes before they are eaten. were also looking for a nice main course. Thanks in advance.
