  • 1 rockmelon
  • 1/2 honeydew melon
  • 100 grams proscuitto
  • 200 grams bocconcini Note 1
  • rosemary to garnish Note 2

Instructions

Melon and Prosciutto Skewers

  • Cut your rockmelon in half, discard the seeds and use your melon baller to make melon balls.
  • Repeat the above step with your honeydew melon
  • Drain the bocconcini Note 3 and place in a bowl
  • Use a knife to cut the proscuitto into sections (about 3 per slice), remove rind and discard Note 4
  • Place the prepared fruit, meat and cheese in bowls side by side. Take a skewer and start pushing a melon ball onto the skewer, then fold some proscuitto and push it onto the skewer, followed by the cheese, finish with another melon ball
  • Serve on a platter with balsamic vinegar or glaze and honey. Sprinkle some fresh herbs like rosemary around for a festive touch.

Notes

  • Note 1 this will be in the fridge section with the cheese in a small tub. The weight will be greater ie 355 grams to allow for the liquid. There will be 200 grams of cheese in a small tub.
  • Note 2 for plating use rosemary or another herb for presentation. If it is Christmas time, rosemary is perfect. You can also use basil or mint. A pop of colour is all you need. 
  • Note 3 don't rinse the cheese, it is perfect to use as it is from the tub. 
  • Note 4 the rind of the proscuitto is thin and hard to fold and skewer, pull it away from the thicker meat that is easy to skewer and discard as you go
  • Note 5 rockmelon, cantaloupe and sweet melon are all names for the same fruit.
