I had the opportunity to meet Executive Chef Ryan Clark, of Lodge on the Desert, because of his involvement in Primavera Cooks! He was kind enough to share this recipe. At the Lodge they serve this with Creamed Corn & Spinach. Try them together. You won’t be disappointed. The crispy prosciutto is in perfect contrast with the creamed veggies. It’s a polished dish – one that will impress your guests.
4 halibut filets, 7 ounces each
4 slices prosciutto
salt and pepper, to taste
4 tablespoons olive oil
- Season filets with salt and pepper. Wrap each piece with a slice of prosciutto.
- Heat a pan to high heat and add olive oil. When the oil begins to slightly smoke add the halibut.
- Cook for 3 minutes and turn over.
- Put the pan in a 375 degree oven for 6 minutes or until desire doneness.
- Serve over creamed corn and spinach.

“Prosciutto wrapped” – those 2 words itself already sold me the dish :). It does look indeed grand. Might have to try it this weekend :).
so simple, but i bet amazing! i love halibut and have tried it wrapped in pancetta..but never prosciutto…i will definitely give it a go.
I used this recipe when writing a local cooking column. The only feedback I ever got about my columns is a woman who went mad whack on me over the price of halibut. I guess I should have mentioned that my market didn’t have halibut, so I substituted cod.
