Simple Spanish tapas. Easy tapas doesn't mean skimping on flavour, indeed tapas by their very nature are small bites of food either from part of a stew or paella as found in many Spanish bars to a combination of Serrano ham and almonds. Spanish ham goes very well with fruit, the most popular being Serrano ham and melon but there are more . . . try ripe kiwi, nectarine, sweet oranges or grapes. For this tapas recipe we have used halved peaches with a peppery twist.

Ingredients for Stuffed Peaches with Serrano Ham

2 Ripe peaches, halved, stones removed
12 Hand cut slices of Serrano ham
Cracked black pepper
Extra virgin olive oil

How to make Stuffed Peaches with Serrano Ham

  • Cut the peaches in half, remove the stones and using a small knife cut out the pink inner core where the stone has been.
  • Slice your ham (direct from the leg is better) into 10cm strips.
  • Stuff the cavity of each peach half with the ham slices.
  • Drizzle with olive oil.
  • Sprinkle generously with freshly ground peppercorns.

Flavour Tip:

If preparing this easy recipe for quite a few people we would recommend slicing the ham a good hour before to let the slices breath and sweat - this intensifies the ham's flavour. Place the peach halves in the fridge so that they can be served cold. The combined saltiness of the ham and sweet peach is delicious. Accompanied by a slight kick of freshly ground pepper and a grassy extra virgin olive oil adds nice depth to something very, very simple.
