Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 7 minutes
Total Time: 17 minutes
1 pound fresh asparagus, washed and ends trimmed
1/2 pound prosciutto, sliced into strips lengthwise (about an inch wide per strip)
Extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Preheat broiler to high.
- Wrap each asparagus spear with a thin slice of prosciutto, barely overlapping ends until it’s covered down to the cut end (leave the tip exposed). Place wrapped spears on a baking sheet, leaving a small amount of space between each one (so the sides crisp, not just the top). You may need two baking sheets or to broil in two batches, if necessary.
- Place under broiler and cook spears for 6-8 minutes, shaking pan to turn spears halfway through cooking. Remove from oven, allow to rest for about a minute on paper towels, then transfer to a serving tray.
- To grill: Place wrapped spears on hot grill and cook until prosciutto is crispy and asparagus is just cooked through to a crisp-tender texture (about the same cooking time as broiling).
