Asparagus With Serrano Ham
- Preheat oven to 400°. Place half the olive oil in a roasting pan that will hold the asparagus spears in a single layer. Swirl it around so that it covers the bottom of pan. Cut each slice of Serrano ham in half lengthwise.
- Trim and discard the coarse woody ends of the asparagus spears, then wrap each stem end in a slice of ham. Place the wrapped spears in the prepared roasting pan and lightly brush with the remaining olive oil. Season with pepper.
- Roast asparagus spears for 10 minutes, depending on the thickness of the asparagus, until tender but still firm. Do not overcook; keep them firm enough so that you can pickup with your fingers.
- Serve piping hot and with your favorite Aioli Sauce for dipping.
