Equipment

  • 8 Wooden Skewers

Ingredients

  • 1 pound salmon fillets, frozen
  • 8 slices proscuitto
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Fresh ground black pepper

Instructions 

  • Take out the fillets and thaw, but do not thaw all the way through. It’s much easier to thread the salmon onto the skewers when it’s still a bit frozen. 
  • Soak the skewers in water for 10 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 425˚F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or aluminum foil, and set a rack over the baking sheet. Set aside.
  • Take the almost thawed fillets and cut into long pieces; you’ll need 8 in total. I get 4 fillets - they each weigh about 4-ounces - and I cut each fillet, longwise, into two pieces.
  • Put skewers through each piece of salmon.
  • Wrap prosciutto around the salmon.
  • Brush olive oil over each prosciutto wrapped salmon and season with crack of black pepper. You can also add salt, but keep in mind that prosciutto is salt-cured, air dried ham.
  • Transfer prepared skewers to previously prepared baking sheet and place skewers on top of the rack.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until salmon is cooked through and prosciutto is crispy.
  • Remove from oven and serve.
