4 avocados
7 oz cecina, air cured beef from León (substitute thinly sliced jamón serrano )
1/2 cup olive oil
Freshly-ground black pepper
Lemon juice
salt flake
Oil for drizzling


Slice the cecina very thinly by machine, or use vacuum-packed jamón serrano slices. Lay them out on a serving-dish, overlapping slightly. Sprinkle with black pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Leave to marinate for half an hour.

Cut the avocados in half and remove the pit, taking care not to break the peel. Without going as far as the peel, scoop out the flesh using a teaspoon. Sprinkle the flesh with lemon juice to prevent it from getting brown. Place balls of avocado flesh inside the avocado shells, interspersed with the cecina marinated in oil. Sprinkle with chopped chives and coriander. Drizzle with a little olive oil then sprinkle a few Maldon salt flakes over. Serve cold.
