Trout and Parma ham

Trout and Parma ham

A fabulous example of a very good little recipe being made great, simply by the addition of a couple of slices of Parma ham to some beautiful trout.

Ingredients

Preparation method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.

  2. Lay two slices of Parma ham horizontally on a surface, slightly overlapping, then place a sage leaf in the middle. Lay one trout fillet vertically in the middle to form a cross shape. Pop a second sage leaf and a knob of butter on top of the fish.

  3. Roll the ham around the fillet, leaving the ends hanging out and secure with a wooden skewer. Repeat the process with the second fillet.

  4. Place the trout parcels snugly in an oven dish and bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove the fish from the oven and sprinkle over the parsley and a squeeze of lemon.

  5. Serve the trout with healthy spoonfuls of the remaining buttery sauce from the oven dish.
