Prep time 20 min
Cook time 15 min|
Talk about a side for sore eyes. Tender asparagus is wrapped in savory prosciutto, grilled over hickory and finished off with a balsamic glaze, taking your whole meal to the next level.
2 bunches of asparagus
4 oz prosciutto
freshly ground pepper
2 TBSP Balsamic vinegar, divided
3 TBSP Toasted pine nuts (optional)
When ready to cook, set the temperature to 400 ℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
Rinse the asparagus and pat dry with paper towel. Cut the bottom third off of the asparagus stalks and discard.
Wrap a piece of prosciutto around 4-5 stalks, and place on a baking sheet. Drizzle the asparagus with olive oil, then sprinkle with salt and pepper and lemon zest. Place the baking sheet on the grill and cook. After 5 minutes, shake the pan to turn the asparagus once, then drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the balsamic vinegar. Place back on the grill and cook until the prosciutto is crispy and the asparagus is cooked through, about 5-8 minutes.
Place the asparagus on the serving tray and sprinkle with the pine nuts. Enjoy!
