BBQ Grilled Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus Bundles

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by GREG IN SAN DIEGO

Low heat on a charcoal fire is perfect for grilling these bundles. Over low heat, fat renders out of the prosciutto, causing it to shrink and tightly grip the asparagus bundles. I often lay 1/2 of the charcoal on one side of the grill for a hot fire and the other 1/2 for a low fire, for cooking vegetables like these.This recipe is one I found in "Cuisine at Home" magazine. It is a wonderful side dish to "dress up" your outdoor grilled dinner menu.

Delicious! I wrapped each stalk individually. 1lb asparagus and 1/2 lb meat.
