I wanted to try out my new Scanpan that my boyfriend bought me from Sur La Table last week, which is an awesome pan by the way. I had some asparagus lying around, along with a package of prosciutto, so I decided to combine the two and fry them up in my new pan. What I like so much about this dish is that it’s very flavorful and has a nice crunch to it from the fried prosciutto, and the grey salt that I added at the end. It’s also super easy to make and low carb.
Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus
- 1 package of sliced prosciutto
- 1 bunch of asparagus
- grey salt (or any type of course salt like kosher salt)
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- pepper to taste
Trim the ends off of the asparagus. Then take the prosciutto and cut it into 3 pieces, widthwise. Take all the asparagus and wrap each one individually with a slice of the prosciutto. It’s okay if some of the pieces break or don’t wrap around perfectly. It will stick to the asparagus once you start to cook them in the pan.
Pour the olive oil into your saute pan and turn your burner onto medium high heat. Once the olive oil is heated, about 1-2 minutes, add the wrapped asparagus and season with pepper. Cook on both sides until prosciutto is crisp and asparagus is tender, about 3-4 minutes.
Serve on a plate and sprinkle with coarse salt.
