These prosciutto wrapped asparagus are the kind of low carb appetizer that make you look super fancy, but they are actually so easy to make. Grab a few simple ingredients, a sheet pan and get ready to WOW your friends and party guests.
What ingredients do you need to make this prosciutto wrapped asparagus recipe
Like I said these prosciutto wrapped asparagus are very simple to make. The method for making them might seem pretty self explanatory, but whenever I post them on a charcuterie or snack plate on my Instagram I get tons of questions! So here you have it.
The ingredients you will need are just asparagus, prosciutto and oil. I like to use avocado oil, but any oil will work. When buying your prosciutto be sure to check that the ingredients are Whole30 compliant if you are on the Whole30.
If you aren’t on the Whole30 and you eat dairy you can add a swipe of cream cheese to the prosciutto before wrapping it around the asparagus.
How to make Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus
To make prosciutto wrapped asparagus start by preheating the oven to 400F. Then wash and trim the asparagus.
If your asparagus is particularly thick you may want to peel them slightly to make them a little thinner. Next drizzle with asparagus with avocado oil and season them with pepper.
I avoid salting my asparagus before they are wrapped because prosciutto is naturally very salty and the double salt could become overwhelming.
Bake the prosciutto wrapped asparagus in the oven for 30 minutes – more or less depending on the asparagus thickness. Remove from the oven and enjoy!
My favorite way to serve these prosciutto wrapped asparagus is to make them a part of a charcuterie board or snack plate.
If you are participating in Whole30 these go perfectly with some fresh fruit and macadamia nuts! Otherwise I would pair them with any of your favorite meats, cheeses and cheese board fixings.
I also like to bring them in my lunch as a mid afternoon snack. The hit of salty protein is just enough to satisfy me and hold me over for dinner.
Anyway you enjoy them, these prosciutto wrapped asparagus are bound to be a hit with your family!
