Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

  • 1 pound asparagus tough ends cut away (try to get thicker asparagus, not pencil thin)
  • 6 oz prosciutto
  • olive oil spray

Lemon Garlic Aioli

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise use my homemade version for paleo/Whole30
  • zest from 2 lemons about 1 tablespoon
  • 1 garlic clove very finely minced


Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus Prep

  • Cut each piece of prosciutto in half lengthwise, so you have 2 very long and skinny slices of prosciutto.
  • Wrap each piece of asparagus with 1 of the half slices of prosciutto. Wrap it starting at the bottom, and at an upward angle. (see picture in post for example).
  • Repeat until all the asparagus is wrapped. You can either cook it immediately, or cover it and refrigerate until ready to cook. Will keep in the refrigerator for 2 days.

Lemon Garlic Aioli

  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the mayo, lemon zest and garlic. Stir until combined. (No need to add salt, the prosciutto is salty enough.)
  • Will keep covered in the fridge for 1 week.

Cooking and Serving the Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees with the oven rack in the upper third.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (not necessary, but makes for easier cleanup).
  • Arrange the prosciutto wrapped asparagus in a single layer. Spray with olive oil spray.
  • Roast in the oven for about 10 minutes, until the prosciutto is crispy, turning the asparagus halfway thru.
  • Serve warm or room temperature with the lemon garlic aioli.
