  • Yield: 4 Servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound (455 g) fresh asparagus
  • 4 ounces (115 g) thinly sliced prosciutto
  • 1 tablespoon (14 g) ghee or grass-fed butter
How to Make It
  1. Cut the bottom 2 inches (5 cm) off the asparagus. Then cut each slice of prosciutto in half lengthwise and individually wrap each piece around an asparagus spear.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt the ghee. Add the wrapped asparagus and cook for about 2 minutes on each side, until the prosciutto is crispy. Reduce the heat to low and cook for about 10 minutes so the asparagus can steam.
  3. Alternatively, you can roast them at 450°F (230°C, or gas mark 8) on a baking sheet. After you’ve wrapped the asparagus with prosciutto, brush them with melted ghee/butter, bake for 5 minutes on one side, flip, and bake for an additional 5 minutes.
