Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus – this quick and easy appetizer comes together in 10 minutes and is Whole30 compliant & paleo friendly.
Anything with prosciutto is delicious, am I right? Especially when it’s crispy and seared from being in a hot pan. I found Whole 30 compliant prosciutto at Costco – score! We’ve already eaten two packages and all in the form of this Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus. It’s just so easy and so delicious not to keep making. It’s also Whole 30 compliant and paleo friendly – another score! *Note: Make sure to use Whole 30 compliant prosciutto in the recipe
In other news, it’s snowing in Reno. WTH? I thought it was supposed to be spring time? I mean it is April. We went on a mountain bike ride last Sunday and so I was just starting to get used to the idea of Spring and warmer weather! I did look at the weather for this weekend and it said a high of 66, so hopefully that holds and we will be back on track for Spring. Haha!
Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus - this two ingredient appetizer is FAST & EASY! It takes 10 minutes to make and cook & will be gone faster than it took to prepare. This healthy appetizer is also Whole 30 compliant, Paleo friendly, Dairy-free & Gluten-Free!
- 14 spears fresh asparagus, trimmed
- 7 slices prosciutto [3 oz]
- lemon zest [optional topping]
Tear each slice of prosciutto in half, long way (so you have two long pieces out of one piece). Wrap prosciutto around one spear of asparagus at an angle to cover as much of asparagus spear as possible. Repeat until all asparagus spears are wrapped
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add asparagus and cook until about 2 minutes per side or prosciutto is crisp and asparagus is tender. Plate, top with zest (if using), serve & enjoy!
