Friday! Oh what a day! Prosciutto Wrapped Cod

My scales are reading the lightest they have been since last Halloween!  Woo Hoo!  I have a roll going and just have to keep her heading in that direction!  ROCK ON!

Prosciutto Wrapped Cod

A very simple entree that doesn’t take much time!


  • 12 slices prosciutto di Parma
  • 3 pounds thick cod, cut into 12 (4-ounce) chunks
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, 3 turns of the pan
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges


Halve the slices of prosciutto. Pat cod dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Wrap fish in prosciutto. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet until it ripples over medium-high heat. Cook fish 3 to 4 minutes on each side until prosciutto is crisp and fish is firm. Do not crowd the pan. Work in 2 batches, fish can be served at room temperature or kept warm under a loose foil tent. Serve with lemon wedges.
