Serrano ham and figs really are one of those classic
tapas recipes. The two go together like a good wine
and cheese with such flavour that these little dishes
are certainly Moorish. There are two basic ways to serve
Serrano and figs, either sliced and uncooked or you
can oven roast the figs. The latter is certainly the
more popular recipe but for a fresh summer flavour and
providing you have a good quality ham then simply the
two together with a glass of rose will gets those taste
buds going! Here we have both recipes.
