Asparagus with Prosciutto

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 15 mins

I just found this in a pile of magazines, and thought it would be good for the board meetings we cater for at work-or weddings, parties, anything!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre heat your oven to 180c.
  2. Cut the prosciutto in half lengthways, and wrap one piece of prosciutto around an asparagus spear, leaving the tip exposed.
  3. Cut the pastry into 4, lay the asparagus and prosciutto across the 1/4 pastry on the diagonol, then pull it up to form an open ended parcel.
  4. Lightly brush with the beaten egg.
  5. Repeat with the remaining 15.
  6. Arrange on a baking tray and cook for 15 minutes or until puffed and golden.
  7. Serve with a sweet chilli sauce on the side.

This was wonderful! I wrapped the Prosciutto around the asparagus. You didn't mention the puff pastry, but I assumed it was to be wrapped around next which I did. The combination of the asparagus, prosciutto and pastry is a great combination. What an attractive dish this is. I used this as an appetizer and my guests were pleased. Thanks for sharing. :-)

This is a beautiful and simple dish that tastes fantastic. (I don't eat meat, but had a bit of the prosciutto. Let me say that one bite surpassed all the pork I'd had in life before going veggie!) Anyway, I did not brush egg on the pastry simply because I forgot to do so and it turned out fine. I'll make these for most future dinner parties, I expect. Thank you for posting!

The picture shows 2 asparagus spears and the recipe calls for us 1. I will use 2 like the picture shows.
