Asparagus, procuitto, Parma, Appetiser


I absolutely love asparagus, and the fresher the better. It's great simply steamed with a balsamic vinaigrette, or can make a delicious appetizer when wrapped with prosciutto and roasted in the oven.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients
Asparagus
Half a slice of prosciutto per asparagus spear

Method
Preheat oven to 210C, fan forced.
Rinse asparagus to ensure there is no grit in the head.
Slice the prosciutto in half, lengthways.



Asparagus, procuitto, Parma, Appetiser


Wrap a piece of prosciutto around an asparagus spear, spiralling upwards, a little like the winding strip on a barber's pole.

Place on a baking tray and roast in the oven for 10 minutes, turning halfway through.

The asparagus will be juicy and perfectly balanced with the crisp saltiness of the procuitto.
