This is one simple and tasty recipe. I had something similar at a restaurant recently and decided to try to make it at home. I can't believe how easy it was to recreate in my cast iron skillet!

  • Lay 3 basil leaves on each slice of prosciutto. Season the halibut fillets with Adobo seasoning, place them on one side of the prepared slices of prosciutto, and wrap the fish fillets with the prosciutto and basil.

  • Set an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. When the skillet is hot, pour in the olive oil and place the wrapped halibut fillets in the pan.

  • Cook the fillets until the prosciutto is golden brown, about 4 minutes. Flip the fillets over and move the pan into the preheated oven. Bake until the fish is firm to the touch and cooked through, about 5 minutes.

used grouper instead of halibut... it was very good. used chili powder instead of adobe seasoning. fish was a little bland but probably just needed a little more seasoning. will make again though. Read More

Ok my review is on one change. Instead of fresh basil I sprinkled on dried basil. This was real simple but I thought this was just ok nothing special. A bit salty for me I think due to the combo of the prosciutto and adobo seasoning. If I make this again I would probably lower the amount of the adobo seasoning. Read More

I thought the fish was bland. I would make again but season the fish and cook it entirely on the stove top in oil and garlic. Read More

This was quick easy and tasted pretty good. I can't say that it was an amazing dish though and I'm not sure if I'd make it again over a different halibut recipe. I didn't measure my adobo seasoning but I have to assume I used less than called for. I just sprinkled both sides lightly. The fish was well-cooked using the suggested times. My presentation was a little sloppy because I put the skin side up instead of down -- make sure you put the pretty side down on top of the basil leaves before you wrap the prosciutto around the fish.

I followed the recipe & made my own adobo seasoning. I was impressed with how easy this was to make & wrap. I love prosciutto & fresh basil so this was a win for me. Read More
