I found this recipe in a Spanish tapas cookbook, I haven't tried it yet but it sounds simple and delicious. It recommends that it be served with a tomato relish.


  1. Place water in a saucepan. Bring to boil, pour polenta into boiling water.
  2. Bring to the boil, stirring until mixture is thick. Reduce heat, simmer, stirring for 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Spread polenta into a lightly oiled 20cm square cake tin. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.
  4. Remove polenta from tin. Cut into 24 small logs. Spread one side of each with a generous amount of cheese. Top with a piece of rocket. Wrap a strip of prosciutto around each log.
  5. Arrange on a baking tray. Bake in a moderate oven 180C/350F for 10 minutes or until prosciutto is slightly crisp. Serve warm.
