    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 4
    1 quarter cantaloupe, seeded and cut into 1-inch slices
    1 quarter honeydew melon, seeded and cut into 1-inch slices
    2 c. arugula or spring mix salad, optional
    ½ small red onion, thinly sliced
    ⅓ c. fresh basil, chopped
    4 (6 oz each) halibut fillets, deboned and skin removed
    Hy-Vee kosher salt and Hy-Vee black pepper, to taste
    12 paper-thin slices prosciutto (about 2 oz)
    1 tbsp. Hy-Vee Select olive oil
    ½ c. fresh raspberries


    1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add fillet strips and cook for 10 minutes or until cooked through and evenly browned, turning occasionally.
    2. Toss salad with vinaigrette; top with fresh raspberries. Serve salad with fish.
    3. Use a vegetable peeler to cut cantaloupe and honeydew slices into thin shavings; discard rinds.
    4. In a large bowl, toss together melon shavings, arugula (if desired), red onion and basil; set aside.
    5. Cut halibut fillets in thirds lengthwise; season to taste with salt and pepper. Wrap a prosciutto slice around each portion.
    6. To prepare Smashed Raspberry Vinaigrette: In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup fresh raspberries, 2 tablespoons red wine vinaigrette, 1 tablespoon finely chopped shallot, 1 tablespoon Hy-Vee Dijon mustard and 1 tablespoon Hy-Vee honey. Slowly drizzle in 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon Hy-Vee Select olive oil, whisking vigorously, until vinaigrette is combined and raspberries are broken apart.
