This recipe is absolutely fabulous. It can be made with any white fish but halibut is especially tasty. The first time we made this our fillets were smaller and a piece of proscuitto covered the whole piece of fish so we had to modify our cooking time a little. We loved it so much we are making it regularly and trying different fish to see what flavour profiles we like best.
4 – halibut Fillets
8 – fresh Sage leaves
4 – slices proscuitto
Salt & Pepper
Season each side of the halibut with salt & pepper. Lay down a piece of proscuitto and place a sage leaf in the middle. Place a piece of halibut on top of sage leaf and add a second sage leaf on top of halibut (so there is one on the bottom and one of the top of the halibut). Wrap each side of proscuitto over halibut.
In frypan, heat olive oil and butter together over med-high heat. And the fish and sear the outside turning heat down to medium as you go. Turn after about 3-5 minutes and cook an additional 3-5 minutes (pending the thickness of your fish).
The crispy/saltiness of the proscuitto flavours the dish nicely. Have fun with this one!
