Catalan and refreshing

Xavier Matarrodona prepares a baby bean salad with prawns, ham and a touch of mint.

The baby beans are an ingredient we may find in many traditional recipes of Catalan cuisine, so much so that there are dishes that would not exist in the culinary corpus of the territory without them. The chef of the Cullera de Boix restaurants, Xavier Matarrodona, suggests a baby bean salad that includes an interesting sea and mountain mix thanks to the presence of prawns and crispy ham. He also adds a fresh touch with mint, turning it into a salad that preserves the identity of the territory and refreshes us as well.
