Grilled asparagus with prosciutto is an easy appetizer. It's the perfect thing to make when you're grilling the main course. You can put this on the grill first, and have a tasty snack while you're waiting for the rest of dinner to cook.
The most difficult thing about this appetizer is wrapping the prosciutto around the asparagus. I like to cut the prosciutto slices in half while they're still on the paper. Then starting below the tip, wrap the prosciutto around the asparagus while peeling it off of the paper. It may take wrapping a few spears to get the hang of it, but once you do, it goes very quickly. As always, be sure to use a paleo-friendly prosciutto — the ingredients should be just pork and salt.
A few minutes on the grill, and you're ready to snack on some delicious prosciutto-wrapped grilled asparagus. Add some chili-spiced nuts for another quick appetizer.
- 12 asparagus spears
- 6 slices of prosciutto
- Preheat grill on high for 10 minutes.
- Cut prosciutto slices in half lengthwise and wrap one half around each spear of asparagus.
- Grill wrapped asparagus spears until prosciutto starts to brown and asparagus is just done, about 3-5 minutes. Be careful not overcook asparagus.
