2 1/2 tblspns olive oil
1 1/2 tblspns balsamic vinegar

Serves: 4


Preheat oven to 190C.

Mix 1 tablespoon of the olive oil with the rosemary leaves and sliced garlic. Brush a little over the pork fillet.

Par boil the potatoes for 10 minutes, then drain and lightly crush. Cut the onion into wedges. Toss the potatoes and onion wedges with the remaining garlic and rosemary oil, then place on a large baking tray and roast in the oven for 25 minutes, turning occasionally.

Meanwhile, heat the remaining olive oil in a frypan over medium-high heat. Add the pork fillet and cook for 2-3 minutes, turning to brown all over.

Season well with salt and pepper.

Remove the pork and add to the baking tray with the potatoes and onion, and roast for the remaining cooking time, about 20 minutes. For the final 5 minutes add the slices of prosciutto to the tray to crisp.

While everything is cooking, make the dressing. Place the olive oil, balsamic and mustard in a jar and season with salt and pepper. Shake well.

To serve, place some rocket onto each plate and divide the potatoes and onion among them. Slice the pork thickly, place on top and drizzle with the balsamic dressing. Place a piece of crisp prosciutto on top of each.
