Prosciutto-wrapped Tilapia

 How many times have you had a simple fish fillet only to be left wanting more? I do like fish and I'm all for eating healthy, but that doesn't mean flavorless and unfilling.

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
olive oil
Pam
pepper and parsley
lemon wedge

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.
Serves one.
