    • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
    • 3 banana shallots, peeled and finely chopped
    • 50ml cider vinegar

    Everyone knows that pork and apple are a winning combination but as a pork tataki? This is an unusual way to serve pluma ibérica that I first saw in a Japanese restaurant in Madrid. The pluma pork is seared on all sides, brushed with Japanese mustard and rolled in toasted sesame seeds before marinating it overnight. The pork is then sliced thinly and served on a bed of spiced apple chutney and a drizzle of tangy yuzu mayonnaise.


    1. Start by preparing the pluma ibérica pork. On a board or work bench, roll out 3 layers of cling film, one on top of each other to make a rectangle measuring 400x300mm. You will need one rectangle of cling film per one piece of pluma ibérica. In a medium sized frying pan, heat the sesame oil and when smoky, add the pluma ibérica pieces, one at a time and sear on all sides until well browned. Place the pluma pieces on a plate and brush all over with some Japanese or Dijon mustard and then roll on the toasted sesame seeds so they coat the pork pieces all over. Roll each piece of pluma ibérica into a sausage using the cling film and tie both ends. Marinate in the fridge overnight.
    2. To make the apple chutney, heat the butter in a medium sized sauce pan, add the chopped shallots and cook a low heat for 10 minutes or until soft. Add the chopped apples, mustard seeds and raisins and cook for a further 5 minutes. Increase the heat, add the cider vinegar and reduce until all the liquid has evaporated. Reduce the heat and cook for a further 5 minutes more. Set aside to cool.
    3. To make the yuzu mayonnaise, combine both ingredients and set aside.
    4. To serve, sliced the pluma ibérica into 0.5cm thick slices. Lay each slice of pork on a spoon of apple chutney, drizzle some sesame oil, soy sauce and top each pork sliced with some yuzu mayonnaise and some chopped spring onions.
