Prosciutto wrapped asparagus holds all the essentials for a sophisticated starter at a dinner party along with being so easy to produce that it makes entertaining enjoyable rather than a chore.
Vary the presentation by using pretty garnishes.
The recipe is very simple and its
quite quick to make but you do need to pop it all together at the last minute as the asparagus is far nicer served hot.
8 slim slices Prosciutto
20 asparagus spears
salt and pepper to taste
We don't think Prosicutto Wrapped Asparagus needs any extras to taste amazing.
If you are having a finger buffet you could use small slices of prosciutto and wrap individual spears as finger food although you need to consider whether they are as nice cold as hot.
You might also try using different varieties of asparagus including white if you can get your hands on some.
We would not recommend using tinned green asparagus for this recipe as the asparagus just does not have the texture, however if you are a fan of white tinned asparagus why not give it a try.
