32 slices of Speck Alto Adige PGI 
100 g of rocket leaves 
2 tbsp. of horseradish shavings 
4 tbsp. of sour cream

Preparation

Peel the potatoes. Either grate them coarsely with a grater or cut them first into thin slices with a mandoline and then into fine strips. Season with salt. Heat the oil in a pan, add the potatoes, and press them down. Reduce the heat slightly, turn the potatoes over with a spatula, and leave to fry until golden brown.

Salad marinade:

Mix well together the white-wine vinegar and the meat stock or water. Stir the olive oil into the mixture. Season with salt and pepper.

Finishing:

Dress the rocket leaves with the salad marinade and serve them with the Rösti. Garnish the Rösti with the slices of Speck Alto Adige PGI and the shavings of horseradish. Season the sour cream with salt and decorate the edge of the dish with it before serving.

Make sure there’s always enough oil for the Rösti to fry in. You can also use a small Rösti pan to fry the Rösti in helpings. For a change, you can add strips of raw courgettes or pumpkins to the potatoes. Rösti are a perfect accompaniment to grilled or sautéed meat as well as to smoked fish.
