Prosciutto crisps are delicious, salty and crunchy. They are a great way to add texture to a dish and a safe way to serve prosciutto to children, elderly and pregnant ladies. Their flavour is similar to bacon and are a good, lower fat substitute for streaky bacon. I add them to salads, soup, fish, etc.
Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat.
Add the prosciutto in strips (not touching) in the pan.
When the prosciutto has discoloured, use a fork or tongs to turn it to the other side (1 to 2 minutes).
When the other side has discoloured (1 to 2 minutes), remove the prosciutto to a plate lined with kitchen paper to drain and cool.
When the prosciutto is cool, it will become more brittle and break easily with your fingers. Leave whole or break as required for the recipe.
