This is such an easy paleo fish recipe. Delicious with white fish like firm cod but equally good with salmon fillets. We often serve this with spiralised carrots and courgettes like this recipe. The great thing about this recipe is you can prepare it well ahead and keep in the fridge until you’re ready to cook it.  It’s also wonderful served cod with salad.

What’s good about it?

A delicious way to serve fish. Using salmon will provide plenty of omega 3 fats as well as protein.


  1. Prepare the fish. Lay two slices of prosciutto overlapping lengthways on a board. Sit a piece of fish near one of the short ends. Season then place a couple of sage leaves on top. Roll up the fish to wrap it up in the prosciutto. Repeat with the other fillets
  2.  Heat a little oil in a pan. Once hot place the fillets in seam side down and allow them to cook for 3-4 minutes. Carefully turn them over and continue to cook for another 5-6 minutes – check that the fish is cooked through before serving.
