Recipe of the week: Fresh water prawn, grilled radicchio, fresh fig and jamon salad


A chef should always try to bring together new flavours and combine his passions with his guests’ refined tastes. This recipe can be executed in any environment: in a restaurant kitchen or on the bridge of a boat. It needs very few ingredients but the result is mind-blowing. This is a warm salad with marron (a fresh water lobster) radicchio which has been salted and seared on the flat grill, and sliced jamon (Spanish style cured ham) with sliced fresh fig which is dressed with a peach and Chardonnay vinegar vinaigrette.
