3 ingredients and 20 minutes. It doesn't get much easier than that! My Proscuitto Wrapped Salmon is the perfect weeknight meal and is a great recipe to help incorporate more healthy fish into your diet. If you're feeling up to trying something new, or are looking for a new way to prepare salmon- here's the recipe for you!
4 salmon fillets (boneless, skinless, and approximately 2 inches wide)
8 pieces of proscuitto (thinly sliced)
4 teaspoons of prepared pesto
-Spread 1 teaspoon of pesto on each salmon fillet.
-Wrap each fillet with 2 pieces of prosciutto.
-Place on a wire cooling rack on top of a baking sheet.
-Bake in a 400 degree oven for 15-17 minutes until prosciutto starts to slightly crisp.
-Remove from oven, serve and enjoy!
This recipe came about when I had a lot of left over proscuitto in my fridge from party appetizers.
TIPS and ADAPTATIONS:
-Don't like salmon? Try this recipe with similar sized chicken breasts or pork chops. Just adjust the cooking time and temperature accordingly!
-Can't find prosciutto? Use bacon! It's just as delicious and adds a smoky taste.
-If you are without an oven, you can cook this meal over the stove top. Just flip carefully!
-Instead of pesto, try making the recipe with hot pepper jelly, sundried tomato paste, or a garlic aoli.
