4 thin slices prosciutto
2 tsp olive oil
2 tbsp chopped shallot
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 tbsp butter
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Transfer to plates.

Pairs Well With
This recipe came from Bon Appetit about a year ago; it's extremely quick to prepare, elegantly simple, and very flavorful.
Center-cut fillets work best here, since they'll be roughly the same thickness all the way through and will be easier to wrap. Serve with some rice and some quick-steamed vegetables for a good weeknight dinner.
