Serrano Ham Stuffed Mushrooms
Besides being a gourmet meat on its own Spanish serrano ham can be an influencial ingredient in many recipes. Great in tapas too and here we have a Spanish twist on the famous garlic mushroom - an ideal starter or tapas on their own.
3 slices of thick (around 3mm) serrano ham (diced)
3 generous splash of olive oil
3 cloves of garlic (minced)
12 - 14 medium white muchrooms
Mix together the ham, parsley, garlic and olive oil
Remove stalks from mushrooms
Fill mushroom cap with the ingredients
Place on a baking tray and cook on a high heat in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes
Very simple tapas full of flavour and if you want to add some heat throw in a few chili flakes for that extra bite.
