Salmon Saltimbocca

IMG_3500A SPLENDID SINGLE SERVING: This is possibly my favourite way to enjoy salmon.  It is so fast and easy to prepare. And so tasty. After all, who doesn’t like bacon? The prosciutto of course is a very thin version of bacon. It has just enough salt that I don’t add any to this dish. I will usually have prosciutto in my fridge as it comes in those self sealing bags.  Often I don’t have fresh sage so I just so it without or add whatever fresh herb that I happen to have on hand to give it just a little more flavour and also the micronutrient benefits of the herb. I bake rather than fry the salmon. It is easier. Just PUT ON THE TIMER as you are getting out the cutlery and any side dishes.

RECIPE: Salmon Saltimbocca

HAT2YOUR FOOD TIP: Speaking of sides, I will put my vegetables right on the same roasting pan as the salmon. Saves dishes and clean up.  In this case, it was asparagus with olive oil and a sprinkling of cherry tomatoes.  Sun dried tomatoes are also tasty.  Some feta cheese sprinkled on the asparagus would be good if you have it. Yummy!

NOTE: For the single serving super food lovers: Love this dish – bake 2 salmon and refrigerate 1 salmon to enjoy cold for another day.
