Are you looking to get more seafood into your weekly meals? Here is a flavorful, moist, and easy way to make fish that is pretty enough to serve for company, and fast enough to make for a weeknight meal!
I like to serve the fish on top of a mound of Parslied Parsnip, Leek, Celeriac Mash. They go perfectly together! Find the recipe below!
Baked Proscuitto Topped Talapia
9 Talapia Filets
3 Oz. Proscuitto (I used this one with just pork and sea salt in the ingredients)
3 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Teaspoon Sea Salt
1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 Teaspoon Parsley
Preheat the oven to 350º degrees. On two parchment lined cookie sheets, lay out the filets. Brush them with olive oil top and bottom. Mix the sea salt, garlic powder and parsley together in a small bowl, and rub all over the fish top and bottom. Lay one thin piece of proscuitto on top of each seasoned fish filet. Bake in the preheated oven for 12 minutes or until the thickest part of the fish reaches 145º degrees.
Place the fish atop Parslied Parsnip, Leek, Celeriac Mash, (recipe below) or serve with your favorite sides.
Parslied Parsnip, Leek, Celeriac Mash
2 Large Parsnips
1 Celeriac Root
2 Scallions, diced
1 Cup Bone Broth or Chicken Broth
1/4 Cup Coconut Milk (Full Fat no additives. I use this brand.)
2 Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Teaspoon Sea Salt
1 Teaspoon Parsley, plus more for garnishing
Peel and Large Dice the Parsnips, Leeks, Celeriac Root and Scallions. Add Olive oil to a heavy, 5 1/2 quart, coated cast iron pan. I used this one, which I can’t live without! 🙂 Add the vegetables and sea salt, and sautee over medium high heat, uncovered, for five minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the broth, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook the vegetables for 15 minutes until fork tender.
Scoop the vegetables and broth hot into a food processor. Add the parsley and coconut milk, and puree until smooth. Place in a serving bowl, and sprinkle with additional dried parsley.
I suggest getting the vegetable mash started first, and then prepping the fish and baking it. Everything will then be ready at the same time for serving.
