Swap for Pancetta? Catering to a Pescatarian

theamusedbouche | Jan 17, 201209:26 AM

Hey Chowhound,
Having a dinner party this week and planned on making one of my favorite fish dishes EVER - Molly Stevens Braised Monkfish with Fennel and Cherry Tomatoes from All About Braising - because one of the guests is a pescatarian. However, I just remembered that Molly's awesome recipe uses pancetta to really give the dish flavor and depth. BUT I won't be able to use the magic pork product for this dinner party so I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions on what I could swap it with or add to the dish instead of pancetta? Maybe olives? Maybe preserved lemon? I am at a loss. I already bought the other ingredients for this dish so I want to make it work!
