Paleta Iberica or Iberian Shoulder

The paleta iberica is the front leg of the iberian pig. It is thinner and slender than the ham. It contains different muscles and it has a different structure compared to the ham.

Many real iberian ham lovers prefer the shoulder instead of the leg. This is because flavours in the paleta are more intense and complex. Maybe this taste is too strong for people who are not used to iberian ham.
