This may be the world's easiest bass recipe, but it's so elegant and impressive nonetheless. Salty prosciutto and tangy Dijon add great flavor without being overbearing, and an easy lemon-butter sauce finishes things off right. 15 minutes and you're done!
4 6-ounce filets Chilean sea bass
Extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 teaspoons Dijon mustard
4 slices high-quality prosciutto
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
Juice of 1 lemon
Snipped chives or basil, for garnish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Rub filets in oil; season with salt and pepper. Brush 1 teaspoon of mustard onto each filet. Wrap each filet in 1 slice prosciutto. Bake on a sheet pan (lined in foil for easy cleanup) for 10 minutes, until just barely cooked through.
Melt butter in a small saucepan. Whisk in lemon juice and season with a pinch of salt. Garnish with fresh herbs and serve.
Serve over arugula if you like.
