Roasted Prosciutto Wrapped Halibut

This is going to be a short post but just long enough to tell you how delectable this dish was. We had a friend in from out of town, only here for a few days with a massive list of things to do. We managed to grab her for a few hours tonight and I think my husband made it worth her while with this meal.

With a small modification to the fish ingredient, this recipe originated from the Magnificent Roasted Monkfish dish in my husband's Jamie Oliver cookbook. Wow, what a treat!

The short of it, my husband blended some sun-dried tomatoes, the oil they came in and some basil and spread it over slices of prosciutto. He then took the halibut and wrapped it neatly inside, rubbing with olive oil and roasting it for 15-20 minutes in a 400 degree oven. For the side he whipped some potatoes with milk and butter in the processor, really thinning it out with the milk until it looked similar to a cheese-like consistency if you can imagine that. The final touch was a balsamic drizzle and some arugula for garnish. You can get the full recipe here, unfortunately the Jamie Oliver website didn't actually have this recipe on it.

Although the dish was quite flavourful, it did not overpower the fish at all. Every single morsel was outstanding. My husband even made a brown butter to go with our toasty baguette. Absolutely sinful!

This sounds delicious - Halibut is one of our favourite fishes, though it's usually a treat at home. Thanks for the recipe!
