Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus

For a sweeter taste, try wrapping prosciutto around melon or even pear slices.

Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus

Makes 12 pieces

  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 12 asparagus spears, tough end trimmed off
  • 4 slices prosciutto, each cut into 3 long strips
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Simmer the vinegar in a small saucepan until reduced by half, then chill. Blanch the asparagus for one minute, then drain and quickly transfer to a bowl of ice water. Wrap one slice of prosciutto around each dried asparagus stalk, and chill until ready to serve. Serve with a drizzle of the vinegar reduction, and salt and pepper to taste.
