After coming home from Las Vegas with my own SIGNED copy of Tom Colicchio's cookbook, Craft of Cooking, I was dying to try a recipe. The first one I made was a simple choice, and a real keeper! I used the recipe for "Sturgeon Wrapped in Prosciutto", and did it with halibut instead.
2 pieces of fresh halibut
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 slices prosciutto
1 T. olive oil
2 T. unsalted butter
2 sprigs of fresh thyme
Season fish with salt and pepper. Wrap two slices of prosciutto around each piece of halibut. Heat olive oil in skillet. On medium heat cook fish on one side until browned (1-2 minutes). Flip fish and brown second side for 1-2 minutes. Add butter and thyme and cook fish on all four sides (edges too) until browned evenly, a total of 6-8 minutes, depending on size of halibut. Plate and top with butter and thyme from pan.
