Kitchen Knife, Spoon

Step 1:

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 2:

Rinse fish and pat dry. Season with salt and pepper inside and out.

Step 3:

Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Saute shallots and add apples and fennel until soft (about 4 minutes). Add salt, pepper, and dill.

Step 4:

Stuff fish cavities with apple mixture.

Step 5:

Rub outside of fish with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Step 6:

Wrap seasoned, oiled fish with prosciutto or bacon that is thinly sliced and unrolled. Wrap fish loosely (mummy-style) with the pancetta, leaving head and tail exposed.

Step 7:

In the same saute pan over medium heat brown the fish seam side down.

Step 8:

Once pancetta begins to crisp (about 2 minutes) place entire sauté pan and fish in the oven and cook for 6 minutes.

Step 9:

While fish is cooking, make sauce. Place a small sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add butter and thyme. Sauté until butter melts, but not burning. Add champagne and let reduce for 4 minutes or until achieving a sauce-like consistency. Add blanched asparagus and toss with butter.

Step 10:

Place asparagus onto platter, top with whole fish, drizzle with butter sauce. Garnish with fennel fronds and serve immediately.
