Wrapping a healthy tilapia fillet with thinly sliced prosciutto delivers a so much flavor you won't be left feeling hungry and you're not tipping the scales with a lot of extra fat (just a tiny bit isn't a bad thing!)
Lighter than bacon, the prosciutto salts the fish and becomes crispy while keeping the fish moist. It takes a minute to wrap the fish and less than 10 to cook. Quick, simple, healthy meals - Fat and Happy has never been so easy!
Tips and techniques: Pair this with a salad for a well rounded meal.
Prosciutto wrapped Tilapia
1 tilapia fillet
2 thin slices of prosciutto
pepper and parsley
Spray a fry pan with Pam and place over medium high heat. Gently wrap the fish fillet with the prosciutto trying to cover most of the fish, place in the hot pan seam side down. Cook on each side just a few minutes until the prosciutto starts to crisp.
Remove from pan, drizzle with olive oil, fresh black pepper and a pinch of fresh parsley. Enjoy with a lemon wedge.
