Season with salt and pepper and a few drops of balsamic vinegar.

Finishing:

Heat the olive oil in a pan, pepper the prawns, and fry them briefly on both sides over moderate heat. Pour the lentils in a dish and place the prawns on top. Before serving, garnish with slices of Speck Alto Adige PGI, tips of leaf lettuce and dill leaves as well as with reduced balsamic vinegar.

Variants:

You can use turbot fillet or scallop shells instead of prawns.

You can serve potato or asparagus salad instead of lentils.
