Wild Mushroom Salad with Prosciutto Recipe

Wild Mushroom Salad with Prosciutto Ingredients:

  • 6 oz. prosciutto, thickly sliced
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 1 lb. wild and cultivated mushrooms  (chanterelles, shiitake, oyster mushrooms, cremini), sliced
  • 4 tbsp. brandy
  • ½ oak-leaf lettuce
  • ½ frisee lettuce
  • 1 tbsp. walnut oil

HERB PANCAKES:

  • 3 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 5 tbsp. milk
  • 1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
  • 4 tbsp. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tbsp. chopped fresh herbs: parsley, thyme, tarragon, marjoram, chives
  • Salt and pepper

Cooking Instructions:

  • To make the pancakes, combine the flour with the milk in a measuring jug. Beat in the egg and egg yolk with the cheese, herbs, and seasoning. Place a non-stick skillet over a steady heat. Pour in enough mixture to coat the bottom of the pan.
  • When the batter has set, turn the pancake over and cook briefly on the other side. Turn out and cool.
  • Roll the pancakes together and cut into ½ in ribbons. Cut the ham into similar-sized ribbons and toss together with the pancake ribbons.
  • Heat the butter in a skillet until it begins to brown. Add the mushrooms and cook for 6-8 minutes. Add the brandy and ignite with a match. The flames will subside when the alcohol has burned off. Wash and spin the salad leaves, toss with walnut oil, and distribute between 4 plates. Place the ham and pancake ribbons in the center, spoon on the mushrooms, season and serve warm.
