Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus Appetizer Recipe

Growing up with British parents, I didn’t know what prosciutto was until I moved out and oh my GOSH I’m so glad I found out. Prosciutto is an Italian dry-cured ham that is usually thinly sliced and has a salty flavour that pairs SO well with asparagus in this Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus appetizer.

This is one of those dishes that make us look good! With just 2 ingredients, it’s SO easy to make and yet so delicious. Serve these up when you have company or bring to an event and people will be amazed at the flavour combo.

The asparagus stays crisp and full of flavour. You could use bacon if you’d like but the prosciutto gets crispy faster so there’s no pre-cooking necessary.

  1. Greetings from Nepal, Julie
    I had never heard a dish name Prosciutto, thanks to your recipe I am making one this weekend. The dish looks very savoury, I wish I could have a bite right off my screen! Kep sharing more! xx

  2. I made these on my BBQ, using a grid grill accessory and these came out great. I had a big crowd, so I had one pound of asparagus, and cut each single piece of prosciutto into three strips. I wound each strip diagonally across and covering the asparagus. The meat to asparagus ratio was perfect!

  3. That is an amazing recipe. Thank you so much for sharing this awesome recipe. It will be perfect for this coming holidays with the family and friends. Anyways, looking forward to more posts!
