How to Make Garlic Butter Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus
Start by trimming your asparagus stalks by removing the woody ends and discarding, then preheat oven by setting broiler on HIGH. In a small bowl, add softened butter and garlic, mix until well combined. Brush the garlic butter over each asparagus stalk ensuring an even coating.
Next, slice prosciutto in half horizontally, then working one at a time, wrap each asparagus stalk moving on a diagonal angle downwards from the top. Cover the entire length of stalk. Repeat process with remaining asparagus and prosciutto.
Place under the broiler for 4-5 minutes, until prosciutto crispy and asparagus tender!
Garlic Butter Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus Tips
- Prosciutto on its own is VERY salty. If you are sensitive to salt, I recommend using half a prosciutto slice per asparagus stalk.
- To remove the tough, woody ends of the asparagus, bend the asparagus near the base – it should snap in the right place; leaving the softer, more pleasant portion of the stalk to eat!
- Roast the asparagus until it is easily pierced by a fork (fork tender) or cooked to your desired liking. Asparagus will also turn a bright green colour, indicating doneness.
- Additional seasoning options – lemon zest and/or lemon wedges, parmesan cheese, herbs, red chili flakes, red wine or balsamic glaze
