Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall in the Guardian has some wonderful recipes involving pork and shellfish.
I can clearly remember the first time I was struck by the genius of combining shellfish with pork. It was in a little Portuguese restaurant in west London, which is sadly no longer there. I had porco à alentejana – clams with salt pork, or thereabouts. It’s one of those culinary revelations when you think, “Yes! This really works. It will therefore be a recurring pleasure from now until the end of my days.”
Initially I thought, um…. then I remembered that I have cooked scallops with pancetta before.
Going to have to give these a try.
