Paleo side to any course.

Directions

  1. Arrange oven rack to about 5 to 6 inches below the top broiler. Heat the oven to broil.
  2. Snap asparagus spears at their natural ends; discard woody parts.
  3. Lay spears in a single layer on a medium or large rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Gently shimmy the pan back and forth to coat the spears (or just use your hands to roll them around).
  4. While still in their plastic liners, cut the prosciutto slices in half lengthwise with a pair of kitchen shears.
  5. Using just one half-slice per spear, carefully wrap the prosciutto around the asparagus in a downward spiral fashion, from just under the tip going toward the bottom part. Overlap the prosciutto ever so slightly as you do this. As you finish wrapping each spear, arrange them on the baking sheet so that they're as far apart as possible while cooking (not touching at all).
  6. Broil for 3 minutes, and remove pan from oven.
  7. Turn the spears over so the other side can cook, and return to oven to broil for 3 more minutes.
