Steamed Winter Melon with Virginia Ham

Soups and Congees

Steamed Winter Melon with Virginia Ham
Ingredients:
1 pound slice of wintermelon
1/2 pound of cooked Virginia ham
3 slices of fresh ginger, minced
2 scallions, minced
Chinese parsley (optional)
Preparation:
1. Slice the wintermelon into one and a quarter inch square pieces. Remove the peel. Then slit each piece of melon but do not cut all the way through.
2. Slice the ham thinly then cut into one inch by one inch and a quarter inch strips. Slip the ham strips into the slits in the wintermelon, then place these on a deep platter and sprinkle with ginger, scallions, and Chinese parsley (also known as cilantro).
3. Steam the prepared wintermelon on a heat-proof platter until the melon is translucent, about twenty minutes. Serve hot.
