Ingredients

  • 12 asparagus spears
  • 6 prosciutto slices
  • juice from half a lime
  • olive oil
  • butter

Instructions

  • Wash asparagus and cut off the ends
  • Put lime juice on the asparagus
  • Cut prosciutto strips into two halves, going lengthways, so you end up with 12 strips
  • Place each prosciutto strip on a cutting board at a 45 degree angle
  • Place one of the asparagus spears on top of the meat, perpendicular to it (The tip of the asparagus should be lined up with the bottom of the prosciutto strip)
  • Wrap the bottom end of prosciutto over the asparagus and holding the meat tight, start rolling the asparagus up
  • The prosciutto strip will wrap around the whole length of the spear because it’s on an angle (Don’t worry if parts of the asparagus spears are not covered completely)
  • Heat some olive oil and butter in a large, flat frying pan to sizzling hot
  • Fry wrapped asparagus spears for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until prosciutto is brown and crispy
  • Enjoy
