Servings 12
Time 00:15


  • 1
    medium musk melon
  • 12
    slices of Parma Ham
  • A handful of rocket
  • Freshly milled black pepper
  • Fruity olive oil


Bring the melon to room temperature then halve it, scoop out the pips and slice each half in 4 – 6 slim wedges. Peel the wedges.

Arrange a handful of rocket leaves on a plate and top with the melon wedges. Drape the Parma ham slices over and in between the melon.
