    Made this again with a few changes that I think worked out really well. Instead of trying to make vegetable "bundles" using the bacon, I just chopped it in a thick dice to sprinkle on top of the fish and asparagus while cooking. I also left off the finishing butter which I didn't think was necessary the first time I made this, and I was right—a little toss of olive oil was all that was needed.

    Made this tonight and overall was pleased with the results. I had two very thick sea bass filets which I sliced thinner, and used mixed purple and wax beans from my garden along with some very nice tender young asparagus. My one piece of advice is to definitely use a large enough roasting pan to lay everything out in a single layer, to get a good brown/crisp on the bacon and fish. Also, I thought the amount of finishing butter called for was excessive, but it may depend on the fattiness and quality of bacon you are using in wrapping the vegetables. My sweetie polished off far more than his share, however, so I will bookmark this as overall a winning dish.
