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.

Grilled Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

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.

    We love asparagus in our house too! It’s a vegetable favorite! We may have to try this recipe! I have never worked with Prosciutto either, I’m assuming it’s just purchased at the local deli? I’m glad you gave me the heads up that the prosciutto is sticky! Thank you for the good cooking tips! & I’ll let you know if we try it! : )

    There is nothing better than cooked asparagus when it’s done right. Thanks for sharing!

    these look great and would be amazing for a get together in the summer. i could grill them on the grill and they would be nice and crisp and light.

  9. Rachel C says

    These look great! My husband enjoys asparagus, but I don’t really like it plain. Thanks for the new idea!

  10. Beth says

    I am trying to enjoy asparagus more … this one way I could love it I think!

  11. These look so good! Dietz & Watson is the only deli lunchmeat we buy!

  12. While we aren’t asparagus fans at all, this is definitely something I’m going to make for cook outs when we have friends over. Almost everyone we know loves asparagus and this is simple, yet really elegant! And I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like prosciutto!

  13. I love grilled asparagus. Love fresh asparagus in general. Adore prosciutto but have never tried it with a veggie, let alone grilling it. Sounds delicious!

  16. This looks amazing!! We are looking for new ways to make our veggies, grilling is my favorite.

  17. I think I’ve used it once or twice, but it’s not something I think about much. I like it though and your recipe looks divine!

  18. diane says

    We do this, although we use bacon and do it in the oven. It is our favorite appetizer!

  19. My hubby would drool madly if he saw this. Then he’d devour it!

  20. Wow!! This recipe looks amazing. I love Asparagus but never thought to wrap it around something, I will have to try this over the weekend. YUM.

  21. Mmmm, that looks incredible. And, well, if it has bacon, it must be good. My friend has a smoker, I wonder how those would come out in there. He smokes everything in that thing and it all tastes great.

  22. 5 stars
    These look delicious! Two of my favorite foods together on one mouth watering treat! Yum! Can’t wait to try them.

  23. Oh my goodness, can I come to your house for dinner? I love asparagus and prosciutto so it’s a match made in heaven!

    • Jennifer says

      You can come to my house ANY time!

  24. These look like a great addition to a meal for sure. I’ve never even heard of prosciutto before now. However, it looks pretty good.
