- 1 cup white wine
- 1 stick butter
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- juice of 1/2 a lemon
- 2 Tbsp. capers, rinsed
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees (to keep fish warm while preparing everything else).

- Remove prosciutto and put to the side.
- In the skillet, add the wine.
- Cook the wine down to about a quarter cup of liquid.
- Add the butter, cream, lemon juice, and the capers.
- Re-add the prosciutto slices back into the sauce and warm.
Taste. Taste. Taste!!!
Adjust the ingredients to what you prefer . . . do you like more lemon? Add a bit.
Or do you like it with more cream? Then add some more.
Maybe you think it needs more butter to tone down the lemon or wine? Add some.
I know that I played around with more butter and cream to tone down the wine and lemon from over-powering everything. I’m glad that I did. You be the judge for your own taste preferences.
Remove the fish fillets from the hot oven and plate them.
Pour the prosciutto cream sauce over the fillets and serve with a beautiful green vegetable!
This dish looks absolutely outstanding, but I’ll probably have to try it with a different fish – and I’m sure it will still be outstanding.
After a very large lunch at a local event I didn’t feel hungry until I visited here.
I will have to try this…sounds wonderful!
This looks wonderful Roz! I’m always looking for something new for fish! This is a keeper!
Roz, you had me at prosciutto. This most certainly looks expensive and I can only imagine how delicious it tasted. I’m guessing eyes rolling in the back of my head good. Just beautiful!
How fresh and light and healthy this lookis, even with the creamy sauce! anne
This looks absolutely amazing! Yes, halibut is a splurge — but it’s so worth it, especially when you have a scrumptious-looking recipe like this to prepare it with.
This is my first time visiting your beautiful blog and I will be back for sure :o)
What a gorgeous looking piece of fish and you can’t go wrong with anything that has prosciutto and white wine in the recipe. It sounds divine!
This looks absolutely wonderful Roz!
SO basically you take one of my favorite fish (halibut) and my favorite ham (prosciutto) and then one of my favorite sauce combinations (lemon, wine, cream)… how fabulous is this? (Answer: Absolutely fabulous)
The sauce sound divine and the prosciutto must have really kicked up the whole dish. How delicious and creative.
I’m not a huge fan of fish, but how could I not like this!? That cream sauce looks amazing!
What a fabulous sauce!! Ciao Bella :), [email protected]Meatless Meals For Meat Eaters
Love that creamy sauce, yes indeed this one is gourmet dish. Thanks for sharing with Hearth and Soul Blog hop.
Wow – does this ever look good! I’m always looking for new fish recipes because I don’t cook it often enough. Definitely saving this one.
Small world about Fountain Hills – my Dad lives in Firerock. It’s a golf course right at Shea & Palisades. Is that where you parents are? Eagle Mountain is the other course there closer to Scottsdale and also right off of Shea. Either was they live really close to each other!
Prosciutto one of my favorites!!!! yum
Have you made it to my new location yet? If so many thanks and big smooches. If not I hope to see you soon at KatherinesCorner.com Hugs!!!!
I am so glad you shared this recipe. I am trying to add fish to my cooking and I have to admit, I am not thrilled. But this looks really yummy! So, maybe I just need to add some cream sauce. Thanks for linking up with Permanent Posies and Tuesday’s Tasty Tidbits.
