Roasted prosciutto wrapped groper with fennel broth


  • Preheat oven to 210°-220°C. 
  • Heat a lightly oiled non-stick pan and gently saute the fennel, capsicum and garlic until softish. Add the wine and cook down until almost dry, continually stirring. Then add the tomatoes with the chilli flakes, ½ cup stock, the orange juice and zest. Mix well and gently cook until the fennel is tender and the tomatoes have collapsed, stirring and adding more stock as needed. Add 1 tspn chopped fennel leaves, mix well and taste for seasoning.
  • While the sauce is cooking, wrap each piece of fish in 2 slices of prosciutto. Then lightly oil a large pan (that can go into the oven) and cook the fish, seam side down, in the oven for 7-8 mins.
  • Spoon sauce in the centre of individual plates, top with the fish and serve with your favourite green vegies on the side.
