Asparagus wrapped in prosciutto is an easy and elegant appetizer.

The thinly sliced, salty prosciutto crisps when barbecued or grilled and pairs well with the tender asparagus spears.


  • 2 bunches asparagus spears (approx 14 spears)
  • 1/3 lb. (150 gms) prosciutto, thinly sliced
  • Olive oil for brushing
  • Freshly cracked black pepper


  1. Heat the barbecue or grill to a medium-high heat.
  2. Wrap a strip of prosciutto around each stalk. Brush with a little olive oil.
  3. Barbecue or grill the asparagus, uncovered, turning, until prosciutto is golden brown in spots and asparagus is crisp-tender, for about 5 or 6 minutes.
  4. Arrange asparagus on a serving plate and sprinkle on freshly cracked black pepper.
