Brown Butter Prosciutto Wrapped Cod – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Seafood recipes have always been part of my cooking regime and around the holidays I usually stir things up a bit, and make them a bit more decadent.  My Brown Butter Prosiutto Wrapped Cod is over the top delicious and it tastes like a splurge meal for sure.

I enjoy seafood on a regular basis and I try and prepare it in different ways to keep things exciting in the kitchen.  Using sliced prosiutto to wrap around fresh fish is a fun idea and adds a little bit of saltiness that gives seafood an extra kick of flavor.  I think the real showstopper is cooking it in brown butter and I think most people would find it so darn delicious.

I love this recipe because you can swap the fish out for other seafood, if cod isn’t available.  Salmon would make a delightful substitute or other flaky white fish.  I like to serve it straight from the platter, and pour the remaining brown butter over the top — because why not? It’s the holidays.

To Prepare:

  1. Remove cod from any packaging and pat dry with paper towels.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Wrap 1 slice of proscuitto around each piece of fish, sealing in the back (see video).
  3. In a large non-stick skillet, add butter and place over medium heat.
  4. Allow butter to melt and get frothy.  The underneath portion will start to get chestnut brown, about 5 minutes.  Add 2 sprigs of thyme to butter, cook for 1 minute.
  5. Add cod to brown butter, seal side up.  Cook for 3 minutes and flip over.  Cook for another 3-6 minutes, depending upon how you enjoy your fish.
  6. Remove cod and place on a platter, pour remaining brown butter over top and scatter fresh thyme over top.  Enjoy!
