Grilled Tilapia topped with Herbs and Wrapped in Prosciutto ~ Five for Fridays ~ Five Photos, One Recipe
Grilled Tilapia topped with Herbs and Wrapped in Prosciutto
Separate your Tilapia fillets down the center vertically and pat them dry.
Top Tilapia with a bit of fresh cracked pepper, a mixture of fresh chopped herbs and some grated Parmesan cheese. Here I used Sage, Thyme and Oregano (in that order most to least) ~ DO NOT SALT ~ the prosciutto will add enough salt content!
Take a piece of prosciutto and lay it out flat on a plate.
Place your herb topped tilapia towards one end of the prosciutto.
Snugly wrap the prosciutto around the tilapia tucking in the herbs underneath as necessary, spray a bit of cooking spray on both sides.
Preheat your grill (or grill pan until hot) and place your prosciutto wrapped tilapia presentation side down first and cook for about 3-4 minutes undisturbed (you may rotate at the half point if you are looking for crisscross grill marks.)
Flip your fish over and cook an additional 2 minutes just to crisp the prosciutto on the other side and complete the cooking. We served with a Bow Tie Caprese Pasta Salad and a Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce on the side - AMAZING SUMMER DISH!
