1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup Chinese vinegar

2 Asian pears, peeled and julienned

1 lime, juiced

Fresh cracked black pepper

8 thin slices of Prosciutto di Parma

1/4 cup chive batons for garnish


  1. In a non-reactive saucepan, combine vinegars and simmer. Reduce by 60 to 70 percent until a syrupy consistency is achieved. Keep in mind that the syrup will thicken as it cools. In a bowl, mix julienned pears with lime juice and season with pepper. Using a sushi mat lay out one or two slices of prosciutto. Lay the pear pieces across the bottom of the prosciutto. Roll very tightly.
  3. Drizzle some vinegar syrup on a plate in a zigzag pattern. Slice rolls like sushi and garnish with chives and cracked peppercorns.
