I honestly love making this recipe simply because they’re so easy to make yet so delicious and presentable. They’re perfect to serve as an appetizer or accompaniment with your favourite grilled meats on a nice summer evening. I actually discovered them when I went over to a neighbour’s house for dinner and they served them as an appetizer, I thought the idea was brilliant. In total, they only take about 15 minutes to make, so no need for any long preparations or planning ahead of time! Enjoy the recipe below on how to make them.
Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus | Level: Easy | Serves: 4 |
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
16 Asparagus Spears
1 Package (8 pieces) Prosciutto
WHAT TO DO
Set your oven to Broil while you begin preparing your asparagus spears. Prepare a baking sheet my placing a piece of aluminum foil on the bottom. Rinse spears and chop about a centimetre off of each bottom. Toss spears in a bit of olive oil, just enough to lightly coat them. Take a piece of prosciutto and cut it in half along the long part (lengthwise). Wrap the prosciutto tightly around the asparagus, beginning just after the head of the asparagus. Place the asparagus on the baking sheet and repeat with each one. Place sheet in oven and broil asparagus for 3 minutes, then flip the asparagus and broil for another 3. Serve on your favourite serving platter topped with some shaved parmesan for extra flavour. Enjoy!
Tip: Make sure you cut the prosciutto lengthwise before wrapping it around the asparagus, using a whole piece of prosciutto will make the dish too salty and overpowering.
