For a real treat, we like to roast Asparagus wrapped in prosciutto on the bbq. and serve it as a appetizer. It's so easy, especially when the farmer does all the bbqing!
It's a great finger food appetizer for any gathering or for just you and the farmer - smile.
Wash the asparagus, snap the tough ends off, slightly dry with some paper towel, split the prosciutto lengthwise and wrap the meat onto the spears. Pop these tender shoots on the grill and roast for 5-7 minutes until the prosciutto gets nice and crispy (turning several times with your tongs). You can use bacon as well but you should cook the bacon a bit before wrapping the asparagus - it takes longer to "crisp" thus overcooking the asparagus.
Spritz with a bit of lemon and enjoy while you wait for the rest of your bbq to finish!
Till next time ....... enjoying the sunset on the back deck! Life is good.
