Pancetta Wrapped Barramundi - GF Print Email

2 large lemons
3.5 oz butter, softened
1 tablespoon capers, roughly chopped
3/4 cup finely-chopped chives
2 lbs barramundi fillets, cut into 12 pieces
12 thin slices pancetta
4 oz mixed salad leaves

Grate rind and juice 1 lemon. Cut remaining lemon into wedges and set aside. Combine grated lemon rind, butter, capers and chives together in a bowl. Season fish fillets with salt and pepper. Spread chive butter over both sides of fish. Wrap 1 piece pancetta around center of each piece of fish.

Heat a large, heavy-based, non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook fish, in batches, for 2 to 3 minutes each side or until just cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Cover loosely with foil to keep warm.

Place salad leaves and 1/4 cup lemon juice in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine. Serve fish with salad leaves and lemon wedges. Serves 8-10

Chive butter helps secure pancetta around the fish and the heat sets it in place, so you won't need to use toothpicks.
