Clean eating: Warm meals (part 1)

The clean eating series expands with yet another category: warm meals.
The recipe I'm presenting today is the dinner my hubby made for me yesterday. Simple, yet delicious.

We don't normally eat pork, but Italian prosciutto is our weakness.. We eat it about once a month, usually in a home made pizza or wrapped around a fish or chicken fillet.

Clean eating: Pike by K. (one serving)

150 g pike fillet (skinned, pin bones removed)
2 slices of prosciutto, parma or other air dryed ham
2 fresh sage leaves
pepper to taste
1 tsp butter (for frying)

Spinach and lettuce leaves
Fresh veggies: cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumbers, radishes (chopped)
50 g honey melon (cubed)

½-1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Chili sauce to taste
Pepper to taste

1. Season the skinned and boned pike fillet with pepper. No salt needed - the prosciutto will be salty enough.
2. Wrap the pike fillet in prosciutto, leaving the sage leaves under the ham.

3. Heat the butter in the frying pan over a medium to high heat. Add the pike fillets. Fry for 5 minutes on each side, or until the prosciutto is golden-brown and the fish is cooked through.

4. Place the lettuce, melon and the chopped veggies on a plate. Mix the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and drizzle it on top of the salad.

Your plate should look something like this...

Enjoy !

Tip #1: Try this with different types of fish. For an energy-richer meal, choose salmon in stead of pike.
Tip #2: For a less-fat version, cook the fish in the oven. Heat the oven to 200C, leave the fillet in for max 15-20 minutes (until the prosciutto is golden brown and the fish is cooked through).
Tip #3: For a bigger meal, serve with quinoa and steamed broccoli.
