Grilled Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus

It was a beautiful, sunny day to grill out and I had some asparagus that I needed to use up.  I wrapped them in thin slices of prosciutto and they made a wonderfully tasty and easy side dish.  

Printable Recipe
  • Asparagus, trimmed
  • Olive oil
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • Prosciutto, thinly sliced 

Bring a medium pan of water to a boil.  Add the asparagus and blanch for 2 minutes.  Remove the asparagus and place immediately in an ice bath and allow to cool, about 5 minutes.  Pat dry with paper towels.  Lightly drizzle olive oil over the asparagus and season with salt and pepper.

Split the asparagus into bundles of 4.  Wrap each bundle with two slices of prosciutto.

Grill the asparagus seam side down over medium-high heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until the asparagus is tender, turning halfway through grilling.
