A fun side, that is personalized. Each person will get their own crispy bundle of salty goodness – how can you say no to that?


  • 1 large bunch of asparagus
  • 8 slices of prosciutto
  • 2-3 tbsp of your best Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper to tast


  1. Preheat your grill to a medium heat (about 400 degrees) and rub with a little olive oil.
  2. Trim the end of your asparagus to remove any tough pieces.
  3. Spread them onto a plate and drizzle olive oil, salt & pepper over them. (Work in batches if you need to). Make sure you rub the olive oil over each piece so they are coated.
  4. Divide into 4 groups. Take two slices of prosciutto and lay them on top of each other, then take your bundle and starting at one end of the prosciutto and start to roll.
  5. Place on oiled grill crosswise. You want to make sure the asparagus spears lay across the grills rather then lined up with the grills. That way if you accidentally break one bundle the spears won’t fall through… and then you’re left with out dinner. Now that would be tragic. 
  6. Grill about 8 minutes, and turn once so both side of the bundles get grilled and crispy.
  7. Remove when the spears become a little softer and have deep green colour.
