4 strips of prosciutto

4 teaspoons Dijon mustard

4 garlic cloves, finely chopped

Pepper

Salt

3 tablespoons chopped flat leaf parsley

½ cup salted butter, softened

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.

  6. Remove the fillets from the oven and allow to rest for 5-10 minutes
  7. Mix the softened butter with the chopped parsley until well combined.
  8. Slice the pork fillet and serve with the mushrooms and butter.
