4 6-oz. mullet fillets
16 thin slices of pancetta ham (or 12 slices bacon)
olive oil for cooking
sea salt to taste
fresh ground pepper to taste
1 lemon, quartered for garnish
4 sprigs fresh thyme
What to do:
1. Lightly season the mullet fillets with salt and pepper. Preheat a medium-sized, oven-proof sauté pan over medium heat. Wrap each mullet fillet with the pancetta or bacon (use toothpicks to keep the pancetta in place as needed).
2. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Add 1 Tbsp. of olive oil to the preheated sauté pan. Carefully place all four of the wrapped mullet fillets in the sauté pan. Cook the fillets for 3-5 min. on one side or until the pancetta is crispy and golden brown.
3. Carefully flip each fillet over in the pan and place the whole pan on the middle rack of the preheated oven. Cook the fillets in the oven for 7-10 min. until the fish is completely cooked. To serve, remove any toothpicks from the fish and garnish with lemon and thyme.
