Here, prawns are wrapped in thin, pure white slices of cured pork fat (lardo) and sautéed to give a light savoury crust. Lardo di Colonnata was originally a humble food but today it is a prized ingredient in Tuscany. Thinly sliced pancetta could be substituted here. Insalata di campo are wild salad leaves gathered from the fields and they are bitter, beautiful and quite special.
