Notes

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.
