Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

If you are looking for an easy summer appetizer or side dish this is definitely it! And the best news is that it is super easy to make. The saltiness of the prosciutto gives this veg an awesome flavour kick. Whether you are grilling up some steaks, burgers, fish or just having some appetizers with wine – this is a great EASY addition.

Here’s what you need to make these tasty wrap ups!

1 bunch of asparagus
1 package of prosciutto ( I picked a pack of Marc Angelo Prosciutto from Longo’s)
3 tablespoons of olive oil

To begin wash and cut off the bottom ends of your asparagus. You can use scissors or you can just snap with your fingers. The bottoms don’t have must moisture so you are essentially left with the juicy part of the asparagus aka the good stuff.

Once the asparagus sticks are prepped you are ready to wrap them. Cut each piece of prosciutto in half (you’ll be able to make more this way). Then simply wrap around the asparagus! It is seriously that easy.

Heat up your BBQ to medium. Before you are ready to grill drizzle the three tablespoons of olive oil over top. I also like to sprinkle some black pepper over top for an extra kick. TIP: don’t add more salt – the prosciutto already adds enough 🙂

It should take about 7-8 minutes on the grill. Flip halfway. I like my asparagus a bit firm so feel free to cook longer if you would like.

Another alternative is to cook the asparagus wrapped prosciutto in the oven. Set it at 375 and cook for 10-12 mins flipping half way.

Mmmmmm I recommend eating them right off the grill, although I’m sure you’ll have a hard time not doing that 😉
