Preparation

Pistachio Romesco
Roast fresh peas in the pod over the glowing coals. Remove the peas from the pods. Blend the peas together with the pistachios and olive oil, and season with sea salt.

Kosho
Turn the lime while roasting over medium heat until the lime has softened. Meanwhile, finely chop the jalapeno peppers. Mix this with Maldon Sea salt and squeeze the juice/flesh from the roasted lime over this mixture. Leave it to marinate for a while.

Leeks
Grill the leeks on the grill over medium heat. Turn the leeks halfway through. Check if the grilled leeks are soft and remove from the heat. Leave to cool for a while. Remove the outer blackened leaves and set them aside. Use a hand blender to make a dressing from the blackened leaves and olive oil.

Burrata
Halve the burrata balls and set aside.

Plate up
Cut the leeks into 3 pieces and halve them horizontally.
Place 2 pieces of leek on a plate. Place 1 tablespoon of the pistachio romesco on the grilled leek and place half a ball of burrata against it. Season the burrata with about 1 teaspoon of the kosho mixture.

Dress with the burnt leek dressing.
