The saying “anything wrapped in bacon is good” was never more true than with this side dish/appetizer. This is a great way to BBQ asparagus and make something so simple look elegant. Pairs nicely with fish or meat. Wrap one asparagus spear with a prosciutto slice or wrap 2-3 thin spears together.
Prep: 5 min
BBQ: 10 min
- Prosciutto (Italian ham), several slices
- Asparagus bunch
- Wash and prepare asparagus. Hold both ends of an asparagus spear and gently bend until it snaps into two. Discard the woody bottom end.
- Loosely wrap asparagus with prosciutto so that stem is mostly covered.
- Place on bbq and cook until vegetable is tender and prosciutto is crispy.
I used my indoor grill and it worked beautifully.
