Looking for alternative ways to incorporate glazed ham into your festive meals? Here’s one that includes a pomegranate and fennel salad for a fresh and fruity side, a great companion to balance out the sweetness of the glaze on thick cuts of juicy ham.

Ingredients

Steps

01.

Bring juice, sugar and spice to the boil in small saucepan. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, about 4 mins or until glaze is reduced by half.

02.

Cut ham into 1 cm thick slices. Combine ham and glaze in large shallow dish. Cover; refrigerate 3 hrs or overnight.

03.

Remove ham from glaze, transfer glaze to small saucepan; bring to the boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until thick and syrupy.

04.

Cook ham on heated oiled barbecue (or grill or grill pan) until browned both sides.

05.

To make salad, combine juice and oil in large bowl; add fennel and rocket, toss gently, season to taste. Remove seeds from pomegranate; top salad with seeds and crumbled cheese.

06.

Serve salad with ham; drizzle with glaze.

TIP To remove the seeds from a pomegranate, cut it in half crossways and hold cut-side down over a bowl. Hit the outside skin of the fruit sharply with a wooden spoon¬≠ as hard as you can ¬≠and the seeds should fall out. If they don’t, dig them out with a teaspoon.
