3. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a frying pan. Cook the fish, sage-side down, until the prosciutto is crisp. Turn once and cook briefly on the other side.

4. Drain the vegetables and return to the dry pan. Add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil as well as the lemon juice, sea salt and pepper and toss well.

5. Strew the vegetables over the fish and serve with lemon wedges.
