Prosciutto-Wrapped Cod With Lemon Spinach Recipe

This is a handy and quick dish to quickly whip up on a mid-week evening. It would also go well with boiled new potatoes. If you don’t have prosciutto to hand, use streaky or normal bacon rashers – it will be just as tasty!

Serves: 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10-15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 cod fillets, skin removed
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 4 slices of prosciutto
  • Cooking spray
  • 30g butter
  • 1kg spinach, thick stems removed
  • Juice of 1 lemon

To serve:

  • Rice
  • Lemon wedges

Instructions

  1. Season the cod fillets on both sides with black pepper (there is no need to add salt, as the prosciutto is salty).
  2. Wrap one slice of prosciutto around each cod fillet.
  3. Spray a large pan with cooking spray and place over a medium-high heat. Add the cod and cook for 3-4 minutes per side until the prosciutto is crispy and the fish is opaque and cooked throughout.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large pan, heat the butter over a medium heat. Add as much spinach as will fit in the pan and season with salt and plenty of black pepper. Cook, tossing and adding more spinach as it wilts, for 4-6 minutes or until tender. Squeeze over the lemon juice and toss to combine.
  5. Serve the cod with the lemon spinach, some rice and extra lemon wedges.
