Melon soup with Serrano ham by Karlos Arguiñano


  • 500 Grs. of clean melon
  • 125 Grs. of Serrano ham
  • 1 L. of broth or water
  • 2 leeks
  • 2 potatoes
  • 1 green Pepper
  • 1 chives
  • Salt
  • Oil
  • Cornstarch


Sauté the vegetables with oil until are well poached. Then add the potatoes and let them do a little. Then add the broth, the melon meat and let it cook for 25 minutes over medium heat.

Once it is cooked, we rectify it with salt and then we pass it through the blender and add the ham in cubes. Before, if necessary, bind with cornmeal.

We cut the ham in strips, chips or tacos (as we like) and add it at time service.
