250 g (9 oz) minced (ground) pork
½ small red onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 teaspoon smoked Spanish paprika
2 teaspoons dry sherry
15 g (½ oz/ ¼ cup) stale breadcrumbs
salt and freshly ground black pepper
60 g (2 oz) prosciutto (about 4 slices)
extra-virgin olive oil for shallow-frying
toothpicks to secure rolls


  1. Combine all the ingredients, except the prosciutto and oil, in a large bowl. Mix until very well combined. Roll a tablespoon of the mixture into a sausage shape then repeat with the remaining mixture.
  2. Cut each slice of prosciutto into four lengthways, and then across to create rectangle shapes. Roll each pork sausage in a piece of prosciutto and secure with a toothpick.
  3. Heat the oil in a large frying pan to a depth of 2 cm (3 ⁄4 in) and fry the sausages, turning from time to time, for 5 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Drain on paper towel.
