A quick and easy fish recipe for two people. Haddock is wrapped in prosciutto and cooked with pesto alongside butter bean mash, all in under 15 minutes.


  • 2 x 180g skinless haddock fillets
  • 2 slices prosciutto
  • 6 ready-roasted tomatoes (from a jar)
  • 1 tbsp fresh pesto
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 400g can butter beans
  • 2 tsp ready-chopped garlic (from a jar) or 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 100ml vegetable stock
  • Fresh basil leaves


  1. Season the haddock fillets with black pepper. Lay out 2 slices prosciutto on a work surface, top with the tomatoes, then a haddock fillet and spread the top of the fish with the pesto. Wrap the prosciutto around the fish. Repeat to make 2 fish parcels.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large frying pan and cook the parcels for 2-3 minutes each side, until the fish is opaque and cooked through. Meanwhile put the butter beans in a small pan with the garlic and vegetable stock.
  3. Bubble over a medium heat for 5 minutes, then blitz in a food processor with the remaining olive oil. Season and spoon between plates. Place the haddock on top and finish with a drizzle of fresh pesto. Serve with a handful fresh basil leaves.
