My goodness, do NOT put your asparagus into a pot of boiling water! Just take a normal fry pan or saute pan and put just enough water in to barely cover the asparagus; then bring to gentle boil, and let it go for no more than 2 minutes. This is called blanching and your asparagus will be perfectly cooked. Drain and proceed but leave out the salt. Prosciutto is very salty on it's own.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, add the asparagus, and cook for 5 to 6 minutes.
  2. Drain, and when the asparagus is cool enough to handle, wrap each spear with a slice of prosciutto.
  3. Brush the spears with oil, and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Set the grill on medium heat, and cook the asparagus for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until the prosciutto is marked.
