Prosciutto Wrapped Alaskan Cod
Easy. Delicious. Paleo. Elegant. Nutritious... and Quick!
This really was an unbelievably quick and easy way to add a special elegance to an ordinary weeknight dinner! A simple stop at Trader Joe's for THREE ingredients and voila!
Wild caught Alaskan cod, spinach and prosciutto... dinner in minutes. Enjoy.
2-4 Alaskan Cod fillets
2-4 slices prosciutto
1 bag pre-washed, trimmed spinach
1 yellow onion
1 T olive oil
Sea salt and black pepper
Fresh lemon or lemon juice
Heat broiler. Season cod fillets with sea salt and pepper. Wrap one slice prosciutto around each piece of fish. Place seam side down on a baking sheep about 4-6 inches away from heat. Broil until prosciutto is browned and starts to crisp, about 8-10 minutes. If prosciutto starts to crisp too much before the fish is done, move fish to center of the oven and cook just a little longer, until fish is opaque throughout.
Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a pan and saute the onion. When onion is translucent, add the entire bag of spinach and cook until wilted and tender. Sprinkle with lemon juice and serve with the cod fillets!
Hope you enjoy!
