  • 250g pork loin , cut into thin slices lengthways
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 100 g Iberian or Serrano ham , cut into 6 slices
  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 25 g flour
  • 2 eggs , beaten
  • 55 g dry breadcrumbs
  • olive oil for frying


Marinate the pork loin in the lemon juice for 1 hour.

Place a piece of ham on each pork slice, season, and roll up lengthwise to form cylinders.

Cut each cylinder into 2 cm pieces, and squeeze into ball shapes.
Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy-based frying pan until very hot.

Dip the pork and ham balls first in flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs. Fry a few at a time in very hot oil, browning on all sides. Drain on paper towels and serve at once.
