Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus


Need a super simple, super quick ap to take to your neighbor’s Labor Day cookout?

Well here you go…

Grab a bunch of asparagus, wrap a strip of prosciutto around it, saute in a pan of hot coconut oil – or other high-heat oil of choice and watch them disappear in a flash!

Seriously there is hardly more to say about how to put these wonderful bundles of salty goodness together! The original inspiration for this was found on Pinterest and came from the eatdrinkpaleo.

1 bunch asparagus

1/4 pound or 2 packages of thin-sliced prosciutto

Coconut oil

Slice the pieces of prosciutto lengthwise into strips

Remove the tough end from the asparagus. Starting at one of the asparagus spear, wrap strip of prosciutto at an angle down the strip. You do not and probably will not completely cover the asparagus.

Heat oil in very hot pan – preferably cast iron. Saute spears until prosciutto is crispy on each side.

NOTE: The last time I made this I used very thin asparagus spears and wrapped them in threes and fours.

Use whatever high-heat oil you like, coconut oil and ghee keep it paleo.
