  1. Melt butter; add the garlic and mix together.

  3. Wrap each asparagus spear starting on a diagonal angle from the top, gently and reasonably tightly, to the bottom.

Oven Method:

  1. Preheat grill / broiler on high heat.

  2. Lightly grease a baking sheet or tray with cooking oil spray.. Arrange the wrapped spears in a single layer on the baking sheet / tray; season with cracked pepper (do not add salt if the prosciutto is already salty enough).

  3. Grill or broil for about 4 to 5 minutes (keeping an eye on them as you don’t want anything to burn), or until the asparagus is bright green, cooked to your liking, and the prosciutto is crispy. Serve immediately.

Grill Method:

  2. Grill the butter brushed and prosciutto wrapped asparagus, turning occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes or until the asparagus is bright green and tender crisp, and the prosciutto is crispy. Serve immediately.

Pan Fried Method:

  1. Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a frying pan or skillet over medium heat until hot.

  2. Fry wrapped asparagus spears for 1-2 minutes on each side or until prosciutto is crisped and browned.
