Peppered Galia and Parma

Party Food – Galia & Parma Bites

Putting together canapés, bites, appetisers, finger-food, call them what you will, can be an incredibly finicky and time-consuming affair.  For something that will disappear in one mouthful is it really worth putting a lot of hard labour into this effort? I don’t think so. Paring it back and keeping it simple means using first class ingredients and doing very little to them as they will sing for themselves.

Galia & Parma Bites:

You will need:
Galia Melon
Parma ham slices (prosciutto di parma or Jamón serrano)
(perhaps some chilli/garlic oil if the parma is dry)
Melon-baller
Cocktail sticks
Black Pepper

Method:
(this hardly warrants instruction as the pictures tell the tale)
Halve and deseed the Galia Melon and then use the melon-baller to create galia balls.
Push a gali ball onto the top of a cocktail stick and slide some parma up from the other end (I used a third to a half a slice for each one).
If you think the parma is a little dry use a pastry brush to lightly oil them with some flavoured oil.
Assemble and garnish with a dusting of cracked black pepper.
Enjoy.
‘Til next time, Sheila.

      Thanks Helene & that’s exactly what I mean when I say parma so I think I shall edit the post to clarify that parma is a ham=prosciutto. Jamon Serrano is another alternative that works well too, thanks for taking time to comment. x Sheila
