Barbecued Asparagus With Prosciutto

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 6 slices prosciutto, thinly sliced lengthways
  • 2 bunches asparagus, woody ends trimmed


  1. Wrap a slice of prosciutto around an asparagus spear. Repeat with remaining prosciutto and asparagus.
  2. Preheat barbecue on high. Cook asparagus on barbecue, turning occasionally, for 5 minutes or until just tender. Serve on a platter with baby potato rosemary skewers.


When buying asparagus, choose firm, bright green stalks with tight tips. If stems are tough, use a vegetable peeler to remove the outer layer. Wrapped in plastic, it will keep in the fridge for three to four days.
Transportation tip: Store in an airtight container and place in
