Ingredients

  • 16 spears asparagus, (about 1 bunch), trimmed
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 very thin slices prosciutto, (about 1 ounce), cut in half lengthwise

Preparation

  1. Preheat grill to medium.
  2. Toss asparagus with oil, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Wrap 1 length of prosciutto around the middle of 4 asparagus spears. Repeat, making 4 bundles. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the asparagus bundles, turning once or twice, until the asparagus is tender and charred in spots, about 10 minutes.

Tips & Notes

Tip: To oil the grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.)
