Tartare of Alta Expresión Dry-cured Acorn-fed 100% Ibérico Pork Ham
Ingredients for the yolks
• 4 fresh eggs
• 200 g of sugar
• 300 g of fine iodized salt
Ingredients for the tartare
• 300 g of COVAP Alta Expresión Dry-cured Acorn-fed 100% Ibérico Pork Ham
• 20 g of pickles
• 10 capers
• 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
• 1 egg yolk • 100 g of chives
• Extra-virgin olive oil • Vinegar
To make the yolk:
To make the yolks, separate the sugar and salt into two equal parts. In a bowl, mix the first part of the sugar and salt very well, and then put the cleaned yolks (free of any embryo) on it. Then, put the second part of the sugar and salt in the same bowl on top of the yolks. Let the yolks sit for around 20 minutes, and then move them to another bowl to clean them. Once they are clean, set them aside on paper oiled with extra-virgin olive oil.
To make the tartare:
Cut the COVAP Alta Expresión Dry-cured Acorn-fed 100% Ibérico Pork Ham into cubes and set them aside. Mince the chives, capers, and pickles, and dress them with the Dijon mustard, vinegar, and extra-virgin olive oil.
Mix the ham and the chive mixture, and use a round mold to plate it. After you unmold it, carefully place the yolk on top of the tartare and serve it on a dish with toast.
