I love the grill. I also love this Grilled Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus. If we can use it every night for dinner as well as lunch too on the weekends I’m incredibly happy. Not only do I like all the foods I make on the grill but I just feel like I eat healthier overall. I like meals where I can cook everything outside and I’m not running in and outside repeatedly. If I can do all the prep ahead of time is just an added bonus.
Have you ever used prosciutto before? I hadn’t. I’ve been seeing recipes I’ve really wanted to make with it for a while but it was expensive and I wasn’t sure if I wanted to take the chance of not liking it. Then I was standing at the deli over the weekend and the girl behind the counter was raving about these grilled prosciutto wrapped asparagus she had over the weekend. I am a huge asparagus fan and that just sealed the deal.
What I didn’t expect was that prosciutto is actually sticky. Not sticky like a sticker but sticky like a window cling. It sticks to everything you lay it on so the thinner it is the harder it will be to work with. I first attempted transferring it to a plate and realized it was just easier to bring the asparagus to the meat. I clumped six spears to each piece of prosciutto. When you begin to roll it and the prosciutto makes a full spin it will just naturally stick to itself and self-seal.
Just before I placed them on the grill I brushed the side I was laying on the grill with a little bit of EVOO.
Then I laid on the grill and let sit for several minutes. Coated the top with EVOO and then turned them over.
Once flipped I covered the grill for several minutes. Once you have some nice color to your prosciutto they will be done.
This was delicious, like lick your fingers good. My husband isn’t a fan of asparagus and even he thought these were amazing. I will definitely be serving these for our next outdoor party. They will great appetizers or side dishes! I’m going to make them as meals!
