Prosciutto-wrapped Asparagus

What isn't good when wrapped in prosciutto and grilled? Figs... good. Salmon... good. Dates... good. Pork... good. Gorgonzola... yep, you guessed it, good. Well, add asparagus to the list, because DAMN is asparagus good when wrapped in prosciutto and grilled.

We had a little dinner party on Saturday night. The main course was a fondue buffet like no other fondue buffet I have ever partaken in, however the appetizer course of asparagus wrapped in prosciutto effectively whet our palates and stands out as the biggest crowd pleasing dish of the night. The recipe is so simple it can hardly be considered a recipe. Wash, trim, and dry a bunch of fresh asparagus. Wrap a thin layer of prosciutto around each individual stock. Grill or pan grill for 1 to 2 minutes per side, until ham crisps and asparagus are slightly tender. Squeeze fresh lemon on top, and try to grab one before all the guests do. Enjoy!
