Otros idiomas: Español Français Deutsch Italiano

Would you like to learn how to prepare a simple dish of a lifetime, but with an unbeatable taste? If so, you are in the right place, because we are going to explain our exquisite recipe for peas with Jamón.

Although this legume comes from the Middle East, it is an essential part of traditional Spanish cuisine, as you can eat frozen or canned all year round. It is true that, in spring, it is even more common because they are typical of this season.

Did you know that it is a food rich in protein, vitamins, potassium and fibre? We invite you to try this recipe that we propose at Enrique Tomás and learn how to include ham in nutritious, healthy and beneficial preparations for your body.

You will have it ready in the blink of an eye. Let’s get started!

What kind of Jamón/ham to choose: Serrano or Iberian?

There is nothing better than shavings of Iberian ham, or pieces of ham shoulder to give a unique flavour to this pea recipe. However, there are many of you who ask us: “can Jamón Serrano be used?”

Of course you can! The choice between Serrano ham and Iberian ham will depend on the flavour you want to give to your plate of sautéed peas, as both products, despite being cured hams, are not the same.

The main difference is that they are obtained from different animals. While the Serrano ham comes from white pigs of the Duroc, Pietrain and Large White breeds, among others, the Iberian ham comes from the Iberian pigs, a breed that can only be raised in Spain or Portugal due to the climatic conditions that their breeding demands.

What is the difference in taste between the two products? Because the process of feeding, breeding and curing is totally different in both cases. In addition, in the Iberian breed, fat infiltrates into the animal’s muscle, resulting in marbling meat, which is brighter, juicy and richer in nuances.

Recipe Fresh Peas with Jamón

Once we have selected the Jamón/ham to be used, we only have to get down to work. Do you want to cook a fancy dish during the spring? Here is this recipe for fresh peas with jamón. You will see that it is so easy to make that you will not need to have experience in the kitchen, we assure you!

Besides, if you don’t have fresh peas, you don’t have to worry, because with frozen or canned they are also delicious.


  • – 500 g of fresh peeled or frozen peas
  • – 4 cups of water
  • – 150 gr of Iberian or Serrano ham
  • – 1 onion
  • – 1 garlic clove
  • – 1 tablespoon of flour
  • – ¼ cup of olive oil
  • – Salt to taste


  1. First of all, you must put the water in a pan, add the salt and take it to the stove. Once it comes to the boil, add the peas, cook them until they are al dente and drain them. Also remember to set aside the cooking stock.
  2. While the peas are cooking, chop the onion and garlic clove into small squares. Then cut the ham into cubes.
  3. Pour the oil into a casserole or large frying pan and, when it is hot, add the onion and garlic.
  4. Stir-fry for a couple of minutes and when the garlic starts to brown, add the diced ham so that it fries a little and gives off the taste we are looking for.
  5. Then add the flour to the stir-fry and, once it has dissolved, add the peas.
  6. When everything is integrated, pour in half a glass of the cooking broth you have reserved and cook it for three minutes. Before removing from the heat, add salt to taste and serve hot.
  7. Finally, if you are going to use canned peas, you do not need to cook them. Just drain them well and sauté them with the onion, garlic and ham for 5 minutes.

How about adding an egg?

One way to vary this side dish and turn it into a much more protein-rich meal is to add a poached or fried egg after it is served.

The recipe for peas with ham and hard-boiled egg is also very tasty and has two ways of preparing it. The first is by adding the chopped hard-boiled eggs to the sautéed peas with ham, and the other is by slicing the eggs to decorate the dish.
