Pancetta saam with pickled onion


  • 1kg fresh pancetta
  • 50g soy sauce
  • 30g honey
  • 50g lemon juice
  • 1 fresh chilli
  • 20g ginger
  • 20g sherry vinegar
  • 1 red onion
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 lettuce


Marinate the pancetta with the soya, honey, lemon juice, chilli, ginger and vinegar for 12 hours. Cook for 19 hours at 75 ºC.

Cut the red onion into julienne strips and pack them in the lime juice and a little salt for 4 hours.

Remove the pancetta, divide it into portions and sear it until it starts to brown. Glaze in the frying pan with the marinade until well coated.

Arrange the lettuce leaves, put the pancetta on top and finish with a little mayonnaise and the red onion.

In this recipe, the sous-vide saves time during the marinating process and also enhances the flavour and aromas.
