Grilled Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

2 Jun

It’s finally grill season! New England has jumped from Winter to Summer (no seriously, where was Spring?) and I love dining al fresco. Even more than that, grilling tastes so good. It’s all a part of the experience of being outdoors.

I was in NH this weekend and we grilled steak, shrimp and chicken with prosciutto-wrapped asparagus. It was so delicious and if you bake it, it’ll still be good but a different type of flavor. I won’t go into the charcoal vs. gas debate but this recipe was done on charcoal and they were all eaten.

What you need:

1 lb of asparagus, trimmed. Break one and cut the rest where the break was OR break each individually.

Thin sliced prosciutto (one slice can wrap one piece depending on how much you want it wrapped)

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Salt and Pepper

Before you wrap the prosciutto, brush the asparagus with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Wrap with prosciutto. You can brush with the oil again before you grill but that’s up to you. Grill until the prosciutto is crisp and the asparagus is tender (if you like it firmer then take it off sooner!). Serve with your favorite grill item.

It’s also good as an appetizer or side dish. C’est si yum!
