What's this?

Savory prosciutto gets wrapped around sweet medjool dates that are stuffed with marcona almonds for a mouthwatering appetizer full of flavor.

Ingredients

  • 24 Whole Medjool Dates

  • 1 Tub salted Marcona almonds

  • 8 Ounce Prosciutto Ham

  • 2 Tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 Whole limes

  • To Taste olive oil

  • To Taste honey

Steps

  • 1

    When ready to cook, set the temperature to 400℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. Place a large cast iron pan into the grill to preheat.
  • 2

    Using a small paring knife, cut a slit lengthwise across the top of each date. Remove the pit.
  • 3

    Replace pits with 1-2 Marcona almonds, then press the dates back together with your fingers to seal.
  • 4

    Cut the prosciutto into 24 pieces lengthwise. To wrap each date, place one at the bottom of a strip of prosciutto, then roll the prosciutto around the date to cover, leaving a little bit of the date showing on each end.
  • 5

    Add 2 Tbsp olive oil to the preheated cast iron pan. Place the dates in the pan and cook, searing the prosciutto on all sides, turning as needed, about 3-5 minutes total.
  • 6

    When the prosciutto is crispy, carefully remove the pan from the grill.
  • 7

    Zest the limes over the pan so the citrus zest is absorbed into the olive oil and onto the dates. Place the dates on a serving platter.
  • 8

    Sprinkle with flake salt, an additional drizzle of olive oil, honey if using, and serve. Enjoy!
