Serrano ham is a Spanish dry-cured ham, similar to Italian prosciutto but drier and firmer. It has a salty bite, so we’ve used it sparingly here, wrapping it around roasted pears for a delicious play of sweet and salty.
Serrano Ham and Roasted Pear Salad
Maple Balsamic Fig Salad with Goat Cheese Croquettes
In the winter, sweeter Mission figs are in season, in summer the less sweet green figs. Walnuts give this salad a bitter edge to balance the sweetness of the vinaigrette and figs.
Golden Scallops with Lime Aioli
Succulent, tender scallops are quickly pan-fried and served with a scrumptious lime aioli. Garnish platter with thinly sliced lime.
