Prosciutto Wrapped Salmon and Garlic Butter w/ Roasted Vegetables

I love fish ! They’re yummy and they’re loaded with nutrition and healthy for you . Originally , i was going to make easy fish , wrapped in foil with vegetables , but i changed my mind . Fish is actually not my territory , my husband does a better job than me in making fish . But the wrapped with foil fish turned out really good . This time , i had Salmon , and the other night went to Trader’s Joe and got myself some prosciutto . I saw one time on a cooking show , wrapping the fish with prosciutto .. so i thought this should be good . Turned out , it’s super easy and quick meal for dinner !

For the roasted vegetables :

2 large potatoes

2 turnips

2 carrots

Dice all these vegetables ( same size ) , then place them on a cookie sheet , and sprinkle with olive oil , and salt and pepper . Bake at 400 F for 15 minutes , then turn them , and bake 15 minutes more . Once it’s done , add about 4-5 cloves of minced garlic , sprinkle all over the vegetables , bake for 10 more minutes . Remove and set aside .

For the fish :

About 1.5-2 lbs of salmon fillet , halibut , cod or seabass

About  8-10 slices of very thin prosciutto

olive oil

salt and pepper

Cut the fillet into 8-10 pieces , and then rub with olive oil , and sprinkle with salt and pepper . Wrap each fillet with the prosciutto , and place seam side down on a foil lined baking sheet . Bake at 400 F for about 10 minutes , the bigger the pieces , the longer you need to bake them , and the smaller , the faster .

For the Garlic Butter :

1 stick of butter

4-5 cloves of garlic , minced

In a skillet , on low heat , melt the butter and the garlic for about 5 minutes until the butter turns brown .

To serve , sprinkle a little bit of the garlic butter on top of the prosciutto wrapped salmon , and add the vegetables all over . Sprinkle with lemon wedge .
