Would you believe this healthy salmon dinner can be made in under 5 minutes…in the microwave?!

It’s true!  This easy and elegant dish is made “en papillote” or in a parchment bag.

“En papillote” is a fancy way of saying a dish is cooked by steaming it inside parchment paper bag.  You can make one easily out of a square of parchment paper and folding it closed.  This is a very healthy food preparation technique if you are looking to keep some of those New Year’s resolutions!

Prosciutto Wrapped Cod with Vine Roasted Tomatoes

2 Comments | Written on August 25, 2011 at 5:00 am , by

If you are looking to incorporate more fish into your meal plans, this recipe is an easy and delicious choice!  It is a sophisticated dinner that can be prepared in about 35 minutes and with only 4 ingredients.  Cod is a great option because it is easy to find in most grocery stores, and it can be a more budget-friendly option.  I love serving this dish with the roasted tomatoes on the vine.  The final presentation is elegant and impressive!

Here is what you will need:

1)  Cod fillet – 14 ounces

2)  Prosciutto – 8 slices

3)  Tomatoes – keep them on the vine!

4)  Olive oil

Prosciutto Wrapped Cod with Vine Roasted Tomatoes (click here to view and print recipe)

1 (14 ounce) skinless cod fillet, sliced into 4 pieces

Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Olive oil

8 slices prosciutto

24 cherry tomatoes, on the vine

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  Pat the fish dry with a paper towel.  Season with salt and pepper, to taste.  Place the fillets in an ovenproof baking dish and drizzle olive oil over the fish.  Wrap two slices of  prosciutto around the fish to cover, tucking the ends under the fish.  Snip the tomatoes on the vine into 4 portions and place in baking dish next to the fish.  Drizzle the tomatoes and fish with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste.  Roast for 35 minutes, until the tomatoes are lightly colored and the fish is cooked through.  Test the fish by piercing one end with the tip of a knife to check that it flakes easily.  Serve fish with roasted tomatoes.  Serves 4.
