Spanish Peas with Ham

Spanish Peas with Ham

This homey, country-side dish originates in Extremadura, Spain, where both peas and pigs are cultivated on the land. Here, sweet, juicy peas are sautéed with tender onions and carrots, and salty Spanish cured ham (called jamón Serrano). This is a surprising simple, yet delicious dish that makes a great side dish for a family gathering or a weeknight dinner. In Spain, it’s also served as a tapas dish.
