Servings: 2
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
• 2 northern pike fillets, boneless
• 4 slices of prosciutto
• 2 tablespoons of pesto
• Freshly cracked pepper
• 1 tablespoon of olive oil
• Lemon wedges


1. Cut each pike fillet in half to make 4 pieces. Spread pesto on one side of each piece. Sprinkle freshly cracked pepper on top.

2. Roll each piece of fish and carefully wrap with a slice of prosciutto. Secure with two toothpicks.

3. Heat oil in a non-stick skillet over medium high. Carefully cook each piece of fish to brown the prosciutto on all sides. You can remove the toothpicks halfway to three-quarters of the way through cooking when the rolls can hold their shape. Cook until the pike is cooked through.

4. Serve immediately with lemon wedges.
