DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400°F Lightly coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Arrange four slices of prosciutto evenly spaced on the baking sheet. Place a second slice over each of the first four. Set one tilapia fillet over pair of prosciutto slices.
  • Season the fish with salt and pepper, then drizzle each with about 1/2 tablespoon olive oil.
  • Spoon a quarter of the diced red pepper over each fillet and spread it evenly.
  • Starting at one end of each fillet, carefully roll it up, holding the prosciutto so that it wraps around the outside of the fish. Poke a toothpick through the center of each roll to help it hold together.
  • Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until the flesh feels firm and flakes easily.
