- 1 pinch 1 pinch ground black pepper
- 3½ oz. 100 g prosciutto, in thin slices
- 1 tbsp 1 tbsp olive oil
- 8 8 wooden skewerwooden skewers
- 1 cup 240 ml mayonnaise
- Soak the skewers in water and remove the salmon from the freezer to partially thaw.
- Chop the basil finely with a sharp knife.
- Cut the almost thawed salmon length-wise into 1/2" (1.5cm) wide pieces and mount on the skewers.
- Roll the skewers in the chopped basil and pepper. Then wrap the salmon skewers with the sliced prosciutto.
- Cover the skewers in olive oil and fry in a pan, oven, or on the grill. Alternatively, place skewers in the oven and bake at 350°F (180°C) for 15 minutes, or until salmon is cooked through and prosciutto is crispy (Note: turn skewers over halfway).
- Serve with the mayonnaise or a hearty salad and a rich aioli.
Frozen salmon pieces work very well. It's easier to thread them on the skewer when the fish is still a little bit frozen.
