Asparagus Wrapped with Prosciutto

These Asparagus wrapped with Prosciutto bundles make an excellent starter or side for an amazing celebratory meal, or as a delicious and quick go-to appetizer.

When it comes to quick appetizer, this is pretty much it. In my opinion, these bundles are absolutely perfect.

I love something quick to make if we have guests over or we watch a game. Perhaps just something to have before dinner or just make it for yourself.

They are perfect savory bites if you like to have a drink or two with your friends. Also, these are amazing to serve alongside of charcuterie or cheese board.

So, I baked one batch in a skillet and the other half on a baking sheet. I must say, they were equally delicious.

I think it bakes faster in the skillet but we definitely saw more caramelization on the baking sheet. You be the judge, you won’t go wrong with either.

Asparagus Wrapped with Prosciutto

I do not make these often. However, when I make them we like serving them with plain yogurt-based dip so it can balance the sodium level.

They are quite salty, but manageable if you drizzle some sort of yogurt dip over it. I mean, I do not mind a bit of saltier foods just because I love it, but some might not take it well so be aware.

I really hope you guys like these quick and easy appetizers, because we certainly love them.

Recipe
Yield: Serves 4

Asparagus Wrapped with Prosciutto

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 17 minutes

Ingredients

  • 24 Asparagus thinner (3 smaller per wrap)
  • 8 Prosciutto slices sliced in half lengthwise
  • Drizzle Olive oil
  • Za'atar for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Wash asparagus very well, and cut about 2 inches from the bottom of the asparagus. You can snap it too, but ultimately it's much easier to cut a bunch together.
  3. Drizzle olive oil and coat it well.
  4. Slice prosciutto into the half, lengthwise.
  5. Wrap one-half slice of prosciutto around 3 thin asparagus spears, starting at the bottom, and spiraling up to the tip.
  6. Bake for 12 to15 minutes in the preheated oven.
  7. Garnish it with Za'atar, it's optional and not necessary, but it gives you very nice aroma and a flavor.
  8. Serve Hot with perhaps crackers and some type of a dip.

Notes

Prosciutto is very salty, especially if you cook it. Adding salt is completely unnecessary. You can bake it for up to 20 minutes.  Prosciutto comes out crispy.

I used a skillet, but you may use a baking sheet lined with either non-stick aluminum foil or parchment paper. If the asparagus is thicker, you may use one for each prosciutto wrap so you will need less of them. I like using 3 thinner asparagus.
