  2. Season salmon with black pepper and wrap the pancetta or prosciutto around the fillets. Place on top of the potatoes and roast for 15-20 mins, or until the fish flakes easily and the pancetta or prosciutto is golden. Serve with steamed green beans.

Made this for 3 people and everybody loved it. We don't eat fish enough in this house, so this is definitely a recipe which will be used again.

I really liked this, but my girlfriend didn't like the salmon/pancetta combination much.

I followed the recipe for the Salmon wrapped with Pancetta. I made this in my Sharp Microwave/Convection Fan Oven and it turned out succulent and tasty. Instead of using boiled new potates, I did jacket potatoes in my Microwave/Convection Oven. I scrubbed Maris Piper potatoes, pricked them all over with a fork, then rubbed butter and salt into the potatoes and baked them on the rack until golden with crispy skin (about one hour). We liked this recipe so much, we had it twice in one week! The second time, we had Nigella L's mash (with nutmeg, butter and cream, mmm). A great dish for entertaining!
