Sustainable Choice.

When in doubt, wrapping anything in prosciutto and drizzling it with browned butter sauce is a solid plan. You can easily substitute a different meaty fish. Serve with fresh green beans.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°.

Step 2

Wrap each fish fillet with 1 slice of prosciutto.

Step 3

Heat a large, heavy, ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat until very hot. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add fish to pan, top side down; cook 2 to 3 minutes or until prosciutto is lightly browned. Turn fish; cook 30 seconds. Transfer skillet to oven; bake at 425° for 5 minutes or until fish is done.

Step 4

Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat; cook 2 minutes or until butter begins to brown, swirling occasionally. Add sage leaves to pan, and remove pan from heat. Stir in sherry, kosher salt, and black pepper. Arrange fish on serving plates; spoon sage and butter mixture over fish. Serve immediately.

very easy and very good. We put 2 pieces of prosciutto and that made it too salty but the porsciutto was really hard to work with. The sage sauce is pretty worthless.

Quick and easy!

Quick and easy and so good! I've made this twice and I love it. I found frozen mahi in the organic section so I keep it in the freezer and can make it whenever.

Good but not a favorite

Easy, fast, tasty & pretty to look at, this is simply not my favorite way to do Mahi. I will stick to the spicy, fruity kinds of flavored, but this was certainly good. Served with steamed kale & CL Herbed Basmati Rice.

I made the recipe using Mahi Mahi, a fish I don't usually cook with. It was extremely easy, quick, and delicious and will be added to our rotation of Cooking Light recipes.

This is a super easy and yummy meal.  I'm trying to work more fish into my diet and this will be part of my go to meals.
