Meal type Appetizer, Side Dish

Ingredients

  • 1lb asparagus (trimmed)
  • 8 thin slices prosciutto (cut in half)
  • 1 Small shallot (chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper

Directions

Step 1 Preheat oven to 450 degrees or set your barbecue to medium-high heat.
Step 2 Prep your asparagus. To get a perfectly tender asparagus stalk, hold the raw stalk on each end and bend. The stalk will snap at the exact point when tenderness ends and the woody part begins.
Step 3 Roll asparagus stalks in roasting pan with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and chopped shallot, then wrap with roasted-prosciutto-wrapped-asparagus.
Step 4 Place pan in oven (or individual stalks on barbecue grill) and roast until asparagus is tender (approx 15 minutes). If using oven, roll asparagus half-way through cooking time. If using barbecue, turn asparagus frequently.
Step 5 Remove asparagus from oven or grill and serve!
