Prosciutto Asparagus Wraps
Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus
makes 12 “roll ups”
This is one of my “go to” appetizers. Super easy, quick to make and always much enjoyed.
I always keep pre-packaged prosciutto in my fridge. You could also do this with breadsticks in place of the asparagus!
12 asparagus spears…best about 1/4-1/2 in diameter, woody ends trimmed off
6 slices of prosciutto, cut in half length-wise
Prepare a water/ice bath. This means to fill a large mixing bowl with cold water and ice.
Fill a skillet with water and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Bring to a light boil, then reduce to simmer.
Add asparagus. Cook just a few minutes until asparagus is still firm (al dente).
Using tongs, pull asparagus out of boiling water and plunge into water/ice bath. Move around a bit to thoroughly chill the asparagus and stop the cooking process. Dry off the asparagus.
(at this point recipe can be prepared a few hours ahead and refrigerated)
On your cutting board, slice the prosciutto in half lengthwise. Lay out your 12 slices, spread each slice with a little honey mustard. Take an asparagus spear and roll a prosciutto slice up the length of the spear.
